Praise for Maker Comics: Create a Costume!

"A nice touch is the addition of body empowerment that recognizes that cosplayers don't need to look exactly like comic-book characters in order to enjoy the experience... This user-friendly DIY cosplay guide is just the ticket for creating a fantastic cosplay persona." —Kirkus

"Create a Costume is a cute, fun, colorful introduction to sewing presented as the kind of story-based graphic novels kids can’t get enough of these days... Bea and Parker are such relatable characters that kids will undoubtedly see themselves and their friends in their enthusiasm and love of all things nerdy." —Nerdophiles
