• Reviewers say...

    "Here is a novel that contains both the hopeful resilience of childhood and the shadow of despair. It takes graphic novels seriously as an art form and gives no easy answers. What a find."

    Sonja Bolle, Newsday


Welcome to the Fanboy and Goth Girl web site! Browse the site for information about the book, an excerpt, VidLit link, images, and more.

You'll also get a chance to meet the main characters from the book through their blogs and letters.

Goth Girl Rising Trailer Contest!

It’s contest time!

As far as contests go, this is one requires a little bit of work, but it should be lots of fun. And everyone who enters wins!

Be sure to spread the word about this to your friends. The more people who enter, the more fun it will be!

Here you go:

1) Fire up your creative engines and create a book trailer for any of my four books (yes, that includes Wolverine: Worst Day Ever!). Whether you love Fanboy, Josh, Kross, or Eric Mattias (Nowhere Boy!), go ahead and create a cool trailer for that book. If you want to make a trailer for more than one book, that’s totally cool.

2) Post your video online. Stick it on YouTube or on your MySpace page or wherever you usually post your videos.

3) Now this is the important part! Use the contact form to send me a link to your video!

4) I will link to your video for the world to see!

5) The deadline is July 31.

6) Everyone who posts a video and sends me the link will win SOMETHING. A signed book. A t-shirt. A cool prize pack from my publisher. SOMETHING.

7) One lucky winner will get a signed ADVANCE copy of Goth Girl Rising…so that he or she can make the official book trailer for the new book!

So start up your cameras or your animation software or whatever and get going! Good luck!

    Mr. Lyga, I just want to say that I’ve really enjoyed your work and that it is an honor getting to act as one of your characters. Thank you. I love the depth behind your characters and the way they interact with one another. Thank you so much for supplying my imagination with fuel.
