RIP Walter Dean Myers. #59-62 came out on Tuesday. I hope this doesn’t mean that they’ve stopped releasing the Mysteries or the Super Mysteries, since M7 and SM1 were released last month. The musical adaptation of The Doll People, a book Ann wrote with Laura Godwin, is having its Midwestern premiere in Holland, MI. The [...]
