    Before she put the finishing touches on April's sexually tinged techno-mystery comic Frontier #7 , or garnered multiple awards and acclaim for 2014's gorgeous graphic novel This One Summer , Canadian comics artist and writer Jillian Tamaki was making a home at Tumblr for a funny, mostly black-and-white comic called SuperMutant Magic Academy . For four years, Tamaki chronicled the ordinary experiences of rather extraordinary beings-a host of mutant high school students-as they endured the perpetual battles of adolescence.

    Jun 4, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    When I wrote about the new Raydios single in April, I called their front man's old group Teengenerate "the best punk band in the world."
