QUINCE is a 15-issue comic book series created by Sebastian Kadlecik (@smkaddy), authored by Kit Steinkellner (@BooksAreMyBFs) and illustrated by  Emma Steinkellner (@emsteinkellner) that was collected into a print trade paperback in 2017. The story follows Lupe, just your average, insecure, well-meaning, occasionally cranky teenage girl whose life is completely turned upside down when she discovers she has superpowers at her quinceañera. Her quince powers only last as long as she's fifteen, so over the course of this rollercoaster year, we follow the adventures of Lupe as she figures out what it really means to be a hero. Today's episode is guest hosted by Mel Schuit (@spiky_penelope), friend and author of the LET'S TALK PICTURE BOOKS blog. QUINCE (@QuinceComic) is AWESOME and I’m so glad Mel shared it with me. I hope you, too, get a chance to check it out! You can access even more information about this book and its author and illustrator by visiting --- Send in a voice message:
