"There are a few comic gems on the web. One is Jason Little's "Bee", a "bubblegum noir" thriller about a curious girl who works at a one-hour film shop and gets tangled up in a murder mystery. The artwork is superb." --Mark Frauenfelder

Winter 2002

"Shutterbug Follies, by Jason Little, is a cute hardcover about a plucky 18-year-old New York girl who works at a photo-processing lab. One day while checking out her customers' photos, she stumbles upon a suspected murder, and suddenly Bee is transformed into an East-Village-type Harriet the Spy. The story is a lot of fun, and I love the beautifully drawn N.Y.C. scenes." --Laurie Henzel
