1. Neil Gaiman posted this incredible comic on his Tumblr recently in tribute to Maurice Sendak. It was created by Maurice and Art Spiegelman (author of Maus) and it pretty much sums up all there is to say about childhood: “Childhood is cannibals and psychotics vomiting in your mouth.” Yes. Brilliant.
2. These beautifully creepy illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe’s work by early 20th century Irish artist Harry Clarke are fascinating.
3. This interesting analysis of 2011 YA book covers paints an interesting picture about the representation of minority groups, gender, and bodies in YA literature.
5. The trailer for The Great Gatsby has finally been released!!! It is so Lurhmann. Can’t wait! (P.S. My awesome boyfriend surprised me yesterday with a copy of the novel so I can re-read it before the the movie comes out. He’s a keeper!)
6. These cool kids and their Doctor Who costumes.
