Like many Canadians my age, I grew up watching Degrassi Junior High and then Degrassi High. And I even got hooked on a few seasons of Degrassi: The Next Generation. So I was excited for my old pal J. Torres when I heard he was writing a series of graphic novels called DEGRASSI: EXTRA CREDIT. It got even better when he asked me to draw one of them!
These graphic novels take place during the summer between seasons 5 and 6 of the current television show, expanding on the relationships and issues established on air. They’re all written by J. Torres and each volume showcases the talents of a different artist. The first three books feature the art of Ed Northcott on Vol. 1, Ramon Pérez on Vol. 2, and Eric Kim on Vol. 3. And then I tackled Vol. 4 with the help of inker Jeff Wasson.
Published by Madison Press Books, in conjunction with Fenn Publishing in Canada and Simon & Schuster in the USA.
