About the Author

Ira Marcks is a cartoonist living in Upstate New York with his wife, two cats, a dog, and lots of books he's been meaning to read. His love for ancient magic and possible futures has led him to create a warehouse of esoteric objects for the Hugo Award-winning magazine Weird Tales and to tell stories about villainous technology for the European Research Council. Shark Summer is his debut graphic novel.

Reviews

"Marcks ... has accomplished an unusual feat with this cinematic homage: He has produced a meta-graphic novel that manages to deconstruct a genre, pay tribute to it and keep the reader happily inside it all at the same time. More popcorn please!"--The New York Times
"Shark Summer is bursting with vibrant, expressive art that transports the reader to a summer on Martha's Vineyard, with a mystery that weaves through local gossip and school drama. The characters are distinct and relatable - kids with unique interests and big dreams, trying to figure out how to be good friends to each other. It's a lovely read!"
--Molly Knox Ostertag, author-illustrator of the Witch Boy series
"A winning production."--Kirkus Reviews
"A strong addition to graphic novel shelves."--School Library Journal
