The Internet features more than its share of negativity and snark—sometimes you’ve just gotta vent. But there’s plenty of room for love, too. With Fan Up, we ask pop-culture people we admire to tell us about something they really, really like. For Comics Week, some of our favorite comics artists are paying tribute to books that inspired them.


The fan: A writer and storyboarder on Adventure Time and a webcomics favorite for her hilarious strips about pet-owning domesticity, Seo Kim is skilled at getting maximum emotional impact through streamlined, yet exaggerated stories and visuals. Her comics have been collected in Koyama Press’ Cat Person, a must-read title for pet owners, aspiring creatives, and adults that love tapping into their juvenile side. For her Comics Week Fan Up entry, Kim salutes fellow artist Graham Falk. [Oliver Sava]
