I created a Facebook page for my graphic memoir Tomboy, which is coming out from Zest Books on September 2nd. I have conflicting feelings about making a promotional page for a book, especially because I’ve been actively trying to LESSEN my social media usage, not increase it, but in the crazy, internet driven world, it seemed like I might as well try it!
Please go LIKE the page, because the more LIKES it has, the better it looks, and this is all just an ego game, isn’t it? There’s not much on there yet, but as the release date gets closer, there will be all kinds of goodies. And, this is especially helpful to those of you who aren’t friends with me on Facebook already: you can hear about the book without having to see pictures of my cats (although I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to see pictures of my cats, they are super cute)!
The above pages are Chapter 2 of my graphic memoir Tomboy, which will be released on September 2nd. In addition to the preview zine (which was given out at comic conventions and book expos across the country this summer) I wanted to give folks who weren’t able to get one a sneak peek at the book. This is a different chapter than was in the preview zine, so if you’ve got one of those as well, then you’ve been able to read TWO CHAPTERS of the book before anyone else! Lucky ducks!
I hope you enjoy the pages, will share them with your friends and followers, and are looking forward to the day when you can get Tomboy at your favorite bookstore/comic shop! (If you just can’t wait, you can preorder book directly from the publisher HERE). I will be posting my book tour dates in support of Tomboy at the end of the week, so stay tuned!
This is a brand new thing for us, and I hope these are well received as there are plenty more punk rocker artists and ambitious designs we hope to make prints for. But really, what am I saying, of course these will be well received — just look at them!
This first batch of designs is limited to 49 pieces each, every one hand-numbered and dated on the back. Lovely and economical, the 5” x 7” screen-prints are $8 and the 11.75” x 15.75” ones are $14.
The Liz Suburbia “House Shows” print especially has been demanded by everyone who picked up As You Were #1, fuckyea being able to have nice things!
