Book to download Check, Please!: Hockey
Check, Please is a delight of a comic book. I've read it countless times, and this First Second edition is a beautiful collection of the first half of the series (the second half forthcoming!). Sure, this comic is about hockey, from practices to playoffs, but it's also about growing up, learning who you are and what matters most to you. The cast of characters is delightful, especially as they develop alongside our main characters. In particular, Check Please's nuanced discussion of mental illness and its effects of daily life add a depth to the fun and funny story. 'SWAWESOME!
William Douglas has been writing The Color of Hockey blog for the past seven years. Douglas joined NHL.com in March and will be writing about people of color in the game. Today, he profiles Ngozi Ukazu and Gaby Epstein, women of color who write LGBTQ-themed hockey webcomics and books.
"Check, Please! Book 1: #Hockey" tops Amazon's best seller list in the teen and young adult hockey fiction category. Ukazu made a splash in the comics and book publishing world when she raised $398,520 through a Kickstarter campaign in 2016 to help pay to print the books, make promotional jerseys and handle shipping costs.
Check, Please! is a 2013 webcomic written and illustrated by Ngozi Ukazu. It follows vlogger and figure skater-turned-ice hockey player Eric "Bitty" Bittle as he deals with hockey culture in college, as well as his identity as a gay man. Ukazu provides fans of Check, Please! a variety of extra content through her Tumblr and a dedicated Twitter account, establishing a piece of transmedia storytelling to expand on worldbuilding. A large fan base has accumulated around Check, Please!, and when Ukazu set up a Kickstarter campaign to fund the physical release of a first volume of the webcomic, she reached her goal with ease. In November 2019, Ukazu started up a Kickstarter to fund a Check Please! "chirpbook" containing Bitty's best tweets. The Kickstarter surpassed her goal within a single day. In 2021, Ukazu started a Kickstarter to fund a Year Four release with one of the rewards including a new comic entitled "Madison" taking place between Years Two and Three. On the final day of the campaign, the Check Please! Year Four Kickstarter became the most funded webcomics Kickstarter ever.
