Biographical Note

Reviewers' comments ...
"Marjorie Ingall, Ms. magazine" - Megan Kelso's [comics] are smart, smart, smart. [Her artwork] is stately and deliberate, but also conveys a sense of urgency.

"Tom Hart, Hutch Owen's, Working Hard" - Megan was a pussycat long before Josie was a Riot Girl, and her book is a lovely balance of love and frustration and hope and anger. She is up to things I can only begin to understand. [These stories] demand your respect and attention.

"Bart Beatty, The Comic Journal" - Kelso negotiates a tension between the spoken and the unspoken - the communicated and the incommunicable - that seems to reside at the heart of her interests.
