Level Up by Gene Luen Yang

One of the things that grabbed my attention in Level Up by Gene Luen Yang was the focus on this war between passion and pragmatism that some of us, especially me, battle. Even though I didn’t mention it much when I wrote about Level Up on Suite 101, family obligation and expectations might be a heavier weight than some of us realize.

Thien Pham’s illustrations in Level Up really emphasize this. Oh, yeah, visit Pham’s blog and enjoy a peek at some of the pages in Level Up.
