Jimmy dreams of one day being recognised as JIMMY RUCKUS, world famous featherweight, beloved by all but in his eleven-strong house, Jimmy is the last thing on anyone's minds. He knows he's destined for greatness, so he sets off to seek his fortune. What he finds are circus animals, painters, pirates and heavyweight champs, each one challenging Jimmy's idea of success. Eventually, he realises he has to decide whether living life fist first is all it's cracked up to be. Lara Kaminoff's stellar art style and sharp characters give us a snappy, fresh graphic novel about a scrappy kid who means well, but never quite gets it right.

'It's in the visual storytelling, though, that How to Pick a Fight truly excels. Kaminoff's outstanding use of lettering tricks, changing perspective, and the passage of time makes for many memorable sequences that are pure comics in composition.' -- Andy Oliver * Broken Frontier *
