Emiko Superstar, a great graphic novel by Mariko Tamaki and Steve Rolston, has been named one of this month's recommended reads by the postergirlz. When Emiko discovers the world of performance art, she slowly sheds her shyness and finds herself on stage, reciting diary entries - but they aren't from her own diary. Who wrote them and how did she find them? Read the book to find out!
The art in Emiko is awesome, and so is Emiko herself. Check out some of the artwork at artist Steve Rolston's website and MySpace. Also drop by author Mariko Tamaki's website, where you may read about her published works as well as her performance art.
Emiko, like the The Plain Janes, was published by Minx, an all-too-short-lived imprint of DC Comics.
Have you ever seen or taken part in performance art?
