Comic Books

Mae Lower, 8, wrote and drew a comic (with colors by Joan, 4, her sister) about a girl named Ekua who is being bullied in school. Ekua learns to adapt and prospers over 16 pages. Mae goes by the pen name Stella Rojo, and her story concludes with a note to readers: “If you have a question, I won’t be far to answer it.” (The young graphic novelists have the option of adding their work to the library of comics available to their fellow subscribers.)
