Gene Luen Yang Comic Available for Download


GeneYang_ComfortZone_fan_tallWe recently published Gene Luen Yang’s original comic, “Comfort Zone,” which drew an enthusiastic response from readers.

To share this graphic lesson on empathy with the greater community beyond our subscribers, we’re pleased to provide a high-res PDF version. It’s freely available to download and use, with Mr. Yang’s kind permission.

We recently spotted the comic—created for SLJ by the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature—on Instagram (below).

“Put up @geneluenyang’s “Comfort Zone” from this month’s @sljournal in the children’s area to inspire some readers!,” reads the post by the Weed Memorial & Hollander branch of the Ferguson Library in Stamford, CT.
