Teen Boat! by Dave Roman and John Green

Sometimes, the boy known as Teen Boat! - because that is his name - wishes he could be a regular kid, but sometimes, having the power to turn into a boat (or just float like one) comes in handy. Smitten with a foreign exchange student, a girl named Niña Pinta Santa Maria, Teen Boat! experiences plenty of teenage trauma just walking down the halls of his school, not to mention on the docks. Faced with all of this excitement and angst, will Teen Boat! capsize or stay afloat? Tune in - er, grab the book - and find out!

With the launch of Teen Boat!, Dave Roman and John Green are sure to delight readers - and perhaps attract boating enthusiasts while they're are it. Accurately described as "half teenage drama, half nautical adventure," this graphic novel will especially appeal to twenty- and thirty-somethings with a wry sense of humor, perhaps even more than the target teen demographic.

Fun Facts!
- Teen Boat! began as a mini-comic and was honored with the Ignatz Award.
- Dave Roman proposed to Raina Telgemeier through a comic based on their relationship - and she extended the comic to show her reply. You have to see this.
- John Green the comic book fellow is not to be confused with John Green the novelist. They both rock. If you're looking for John Green's art, visit If you're looking for the Nerdfighter who wrote the novel Looking for Alaska, visit You can find Dave Roman at
