|Awards||YALSA's 2008 Great Graphic Novels nominee |
Graphic novel named one of Booklist's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2010
In high school, Miss began to create her own self-published comic series, Aim, which she promoted by doing consignments with local comic book stores. It was at this point that she became a member of the comic book community. She said she found more kinship with comic creators than with comic fans, as they could bond over the process of producing a comic.
Lasko-Gross has published two graphic novels, Escape from "Special" and A Mess of Everything through Fantagraphics. The first, based loosely on the author’s life growing up as a Jewish girl in the suburbs, was published in 2008 and earned her a nomination for YALSA's 2008 Great Graphic Novel award. A Mess of Everything, a sequel of sorts to her first book, was also well received, as it was named one of Booklist’s top 10 graphic novels of the year in 2010.
Lasko-Gross is currently working on a series called Henni about "cute animals and religious fundamentalism in a horrible, twisted marriage" for an iPhone app, as well as a long term novel project that chronicles the experience of a burn victim of an explosion.
