Bad For You, Exposing the War on Fun by Kevin C. Pyle and Scott Cunningham
189 pages, softbound, published by Henry Holt & Company, $12.99
us.macmillan.com

Any book this packed with information, facts and compelling drawings can't be bad for you! Ostensibly a book for kids, to explain the history of stuff that's supposed to be bad for you, to find out why these things are not really bad for you, you must keep reading. Kevin C. Pyle, author and illustrator of graphic novels teams up with writer Scott Cunningham who pens comics for DC, Archie and Nickelodeon magazine and parodies for Mad to debunk myths and give kids (and adults) good arguments for the power of having fun. I learned about such arcane things as "moral panic", a term coined by sociologist Stanley Cohen, to describe how the media by overreacting to new behaviors, ends up defining and necessarily distorting how people understand social behaviors. The graphic novel concept applied to a wealth of information, can make it both memorable and palatable. Bad for You is chock full of interesting, scary and useful facts. And like many things that are labeled "bad for you", it's a lot of fun.

Interview With
Denise Gallagher

New Orleans, Louisiana born Denise Gallagher put out her shingle as an illustrator January 17, 2013. She just won three Gold ADDY awards for illustration from the Acadiana Chapter of the American Advertising Federation. All in all, she's had a good year. Formerly a senior art director at an ad agency, she took the plunge last year to start her own business.

Drawing always came naturally to her. "I sometimes draw as an escape. Sometimes to exorcise demons. And, sometimes, to express pure joy," Gallagher explains. Some of her favorite pieces are very personal and infused with meaning. "And yes," she says, "I drew constantly as a child. My first grade teacher once marked all of my answers wrong on a math test because I decided the numerals could be fancier and made them curly and swirly and decorative."

Denise is charming, funny, genuine, and has enough joie de vivre to light up a room. There's joy, but also pathos, in her depictions of nature, most vividly in her treatment of a handful of Aesop's Fables—the holiday self-promo piece was sent to clients and friends as a small book, neatly packaged and lettered. Her animals are a bit fantastic, like ones you'd see in a dream, stretched out or curled into poses reminiscent of early century still life paintings.
