Put down yer chia pudding and pick up a copy of the July/August issue of the Women’s Review of Books! It features a new comic by yours truly in which Butcheye the Sailor Lassie (with some assistance from Sojourner Truth) offers a waterlogged but incisive consideration of the Womink problem. Check it out online!
Didja know I used to do a zine in which characters regularly appeared without trousers? I will be giving a talk on the angry 1990s sex rant that was negativa and the influence on my work of alternative comics and zines such as Love & Rockets, Eightball, Tom of Finland, G.B. Jones, Straight to Hell and more.

Here I am with Nicole Georges, Phoebe Gloeckner (who took this iconic bathroom mirror photo), and Hillary Chute. See? It really happened. It was a stellar panel. Thanks to all of you at Northeastern Illinois University and especially Alicia Erian for organizing!
This is kinda late for me to be posting this but…TONIGHT I’m on a panel with Phoebe Gloeckner and Nicole Georges at Northeastern Illinois University, moderated by real-deal, I’m-not-making-this-up, Professional Comics Scholar, Professor Hillary Chute! This should be a great big wide-open vat of a talk. Thrills ‘n spills with nibbage to spare! Open, as it should be, to the comics-concerned public.

Here’s a little comic about my new favorite band Curtain of Udders, just up on Mutha Magazine.
A review of Pregnant Butch in PRINT…wotta concept! If you wanna read it, go to the library or subscribe.
Last month, I met with Hillary Frank of WNYC’s The Longest Shortest Time and we talked of things pregnant and butch. http://longestshortesttime.com/2014/10/15/podcast-41-how-to-be-a-pregnant-butch/
The Longest Shortest Time is a WNYC podcast for all of you hollow-eyed ghouls who find yourselves up in the middle of the night (not by choice). I heard of it because, after my book came out with its Spiritual Midwifery-bashing chapter, a friend asked me if I’d heard Hillary Frank’s podcast about Ina May Gaskin. I hadn’t. I looked it up and was astonished. Hillary had the chutzpah and decency to actually call up Ina May Gaskin and challenge the legendary midwife-author about her promise of “ecstatic childbirth” in S.M., among other things. Of course, I had my own different bone to pick with Ina May, but I took the sneaky bomb-throwing, comic-drawing route instead. #whyimnotajournalist http://longestshortesttime.com/2014/04/16/podcast-28-the-missing-chapter-to-ina-mays-guide/
I will be reading in Portland, Oregon this August 8 with Nicole J. Georges, author-artist of Calling Dr. Laura. Though Nicole self-describes as “barren,” she just took home the Best Graphic Novel prize from Lambda Lit.
