For the first time an American Library Association 'Read' poster to promote literacy among teens will feature a manga character. You Higori created exclusive art for the poster of her Cesare Borgia character from Go! Comi's Cantarella series.


'We're honored to join with the ALA in promoting teen reading,' said Audry Taylor, Go! Comi Creative Director, 'and we're thrilled to have a hand in bringing Japanese manga to the ALA program.'   American comic book characters such as Superman, Batman and Sandman have graced ALA posters in the past.


The poster and related bookmark will be available through the ALA's online store beginning in January.
