Is your mama a llama? Or perhaps she’s a nurse-fancier? Nursing While Butch II: Those Other Nurses, is up at Mutha Magazine.
Here’s my review of Jillian and Mariko Tamaki‘s THIS ONE SUMMER (my favorite graphic novel of 2015!)—for the LA Review of Books.
Hey, NYC people: I will be at the Brooklyn Book Festival, Sept. 20, 2:00 PM, Brooklyn Historical Society Auditorium, 28 Pierrepont St.
The event is a panel called Can’t You See Who I Am? at which three comic creators talk about their new books, that explore identity, place, and finding your purpose in the city. Join A.K. Summers, author and artist of Pregnant Butch, about her adventures in motherhood; Julian Voloj with his comic biography Ghetto Brother on Benjy Melendez, and the events of gangland New York in the 1970s, and Lisa Wilde, NYC high school teacher whose collected memoir zine Yo, Miss, follows her and her diverse students as they struggle and celebrate over a single academic year. Moderated by Jessica Abel, (Out on a Wire: The Storytelling Secrets of the New Masters of Radio).
Here’s a little comic about my new favorite band Curtain of Udders, just up on Mutha Magazine.
