An all new graphic novel from cartoonist Lara Kaminoff, starring JIMMY RUCKUS, the young rabble-rouser and trouble-maker who's on a mission to achieve greatness by fighting his way to the top!
How To Pick A Fight is the perfect fractured fable about a scrappy kid who means well, but never quite gets it right.
The tenacious and stubborn young scrapper Jimmy Ruckus has plans to be the greatest wrestler in the world, and he's up for fighting anyone. From his own family, his schoolwork, wild animals, sensitive artists, hard-drinking pirates, and a heavyweight champ or two, he's challenging the world one small fight at a time! But can his hopes and dreams take him all the way to stellar success? Or will Jimmy have to learn to stop living his life fist-first?
About the Author
Lara Kaminoff is a cartoonist and book-slinger living in Seattle with her beloved and their cat, Creeper. She's inspired by an endless parade of podcasts, the magical world of fungi, brilliant friends, climbable trees, and danceable floors. Right now she's probably talking too fast, thinking too hard, or trying to fix something that ain't broke.
