This series of character-driven, musically minded stories by cartoonist M. Dean is as graphically sophisticated as it is emotionally acute. Tied together by one central narrative about two teenagers who meet and fall in love after a Beatles concert in 1964, I Am Young explores how relationships evolve — both interpersonally as well as our individual and collective relationships with the culture around us. A romance that begins as emphatically as Beatlemania is, like the band that brought them together, on the rocks by the end of the decade, and although the ensuing years may put distance between the two, their shared experience that one night in 1964 endures.

Press Highlights:

"A thrilling, heart-swelling thing to read." — Matt Fraction 

"M. Dean has a voice and vision entirely, thrillingly her own." — Brian K. Vaughan

"This stunning debut pulls off the rare feat of drawing about music with authenticity and charm." — Publishers Weekly

"A touching collection of stories that all readers will enjoy." — Adventures in Poor Taste

“While the focus of Dean’s book might appear to be music, it’s really identity. Music is the announcement of who we are, but Dean is just as committed to depicting what lies under the songs.” — The Beat
