If you find yourself in Los Angeles this Sunday (September 26), I will be at the West Hollywood Book Fair signing books at the Prism Comics booth (D-25). The book fair runs all day, 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM, and I will be at the Prism booth between 2:00 – 4:00 PM. Drop on by if you plan to attend.
I collaborated with my husband Todd on a comics strip a few years ago called “Ex-Communication”. It was published in the second volume of “The Book of Boy Trouble” anthology edited by my pals Robert Kirby and David Kelly and published by Green Candy press.
A copy of that somehow ended up in the hands of Neil Gaiman, who chose our strip to be included in the 2010 edition of Harcourt-Mifflin’s “Best American Comics” anthology. The book is finally due to be released at the end of this month, and our strip was singled out as one of the standouts in this
pre-release review from Publisher’s Weekly.
We haven’t received our copies of the book yet but looking forward to seeing how it fits in the midst of all the other comics work.
You can purchase in October through your favorite independent bookseller, progressive comic book retailer, or through Amazon.
Wayne Courtois has a very positive review of SHIRTLIFTER #1 – 3 up on the Out In Print blog. He picked up on some things I worked pretty hard on, which I don’t remember any other reviewers commenting on. It’s always gratifying when I get external verification that maybe I’m not as insane as I think I am.
