Haus Studio was founded in 1997 by a group of friends who self-published their own comics. They are located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but collaborate with writers and publishers around the world. In addition to their illustration work, the team runs an art school and has organized comic book conventions and other exhibitions in Latin America. Haus Studio artists consider themselves storytellers more than artists, and therefore love working on projects with rich stories to tell.


Lauren Tarshis's New York Times bestselling I Survived series tells stories of young people and their resilience and strength in the midst of unimaginable disasters and times of turmoil. Lauren has brought her signature warmth and exhaustive research to topics such as the battle of D-Day, the American Revolution, Hurricane Katrina, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and other world events. She lives in Connecticut with her family, and can be found online at laurentarshis.com.

Reviews

The first installment of Tarshis' sprawling prose disaster oeuvre for young readers is reimagined in visually interesting full-color comic panels that support its recognizable thrilling pace and convenient twists. Many of the most exciting scenes are largely wordless, spotlighting the propulsive action amid growing tensions. A fresh and interesting adaptation, making for an easy crowd pleaser. -- Kirkus Reviews

The original I Survived series already has lots of appeal for emerging readers, but this graphic adaptation of Tarshis' novel not only stays incredibly true to the original story but now provides another format in which to enjoy this high-interest and easily accessible piece of historical fiction. The illustrations nicely complement the plot-driven tone and softly show the historical horror appropriately for a young audience without minimalizing its tragedy... Readers will be poring over the pages to see what happens next, even if they're already familiar with the story. -- Booklist

Dark, subdued, inky art sets a somber tone, while a parade of mostly small panels builds suspense and promises to engage readers. -- Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
