Recently released the first volume of John Stanley's Thirteen Going on Eighteen in a nice fat volume. I've never read these before and I loved them. Especially after the first couple of issues when Stanley starts to draw them. The characters get more well defined and funny as we go along and there is some killer poses and panels. The Judy Junior stories are particularly fantastic. My only quibble being that I wish Stanley cover art was on the front as well
and the covers of the individual issues included inside. I would have liked all the covers to have been included in the Melvin Monster books as well but what are you gonna do.
Just look at these great panel layouts and expressive poses!
