Down The Mysterly River, by Bill Willingham (Author) & Mark Buckingham (Illustrator)
Willingham's story serves as a great adventure for young adult readers, and as a scathing indictment of censorship for adults. He brilliantly presents the struggle of creative people against Editors, which is especially relevant for a Writer like Willingham, who has been at the mercy of Comic-Book Editors and suits, who constantly tinker with character and continuity to suit their own untalented vision. DOWN THE MYSTERLY RIVER is a brilliant, heartbreaking book....I'm going to be saving my copy for my kids to read when they get a little bit older. Highly recommended.
