Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘Good As Lily’

Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new graphic novels by the world’s best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we’ll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.

Grace Kwon just turned 18, but life hasn’t gotten any easier. She can’t get a date, her best friend has a crush on her, and her high school just canceled the school play. On top of everything else, three mysterious strangers just dropped into her life … and they all look awfully familiar.

All week on the Comics Page, we’re excerpting Good As Lily, a charming English-language manga written by Derek Kirk Kim and drawn by Jesse Hamm, coming in August from Minx.
