US Launch For The Black Feather Falls, This Tuesday! [Mar. 25th, 2016|12:29 am]

I am sooooo excited to be tabling at MoCCA Fest, next weekend, and to be launching the COLLECTED EDITION of The Black Feather Falls!

It's a real pleasure to be able to share the complete story with readers. When BFF was nominated for an Ignatz award for best series, I think there might have been an impression that this was an open-ended narrative. But I always wanted to do a four part series, and Soaring Penguin signed on with that in mind.

Who knows if there will be a sequel? I already have an idea for a tale set in a city that has fascinated me for a very long time, Cairo! But for now, it's time to celebrate, eat some cake and party with friends and fans!

And so - please come to Lucey's Lounge this Tuesday, March 29th, 6:30-infinity, for a little MoCCA warmup action, and to take a first look at The Black Feather Falls, COLLECTED EDITION! If all goes well, I'll also have copies of Pitching A Fit in the Big City, my new collection of memoir comics!

Can't make it?

US folks: grab a copy in my Etsy!

UK folks: you can order it from Soaring Penguin.

You can also order if from a site that rhymes with "glamazon" (although where they got that frightful cover shot, I do not know!)

Regardless of where or how you get your mitts on a copy, I appreciate your support.

See you at Lucey's tomorrow, and MoCCA this Saturday!

I am so excited to have been chosen by Paul Gravett and Olivia Ahmad for the Comix Creatrix show currently at House of Illustration in London!

It's humbling to have my work side by side with so many amazing women cartoonists! And now there's a Comix Creatrix interview with me, Tula Lotay and fellow Strumpet Rachael Ball up on Alex Fitch's Panel Borders blog.

Happy Flapper-y New Year! [Dec. 30th, 2015|06:16 pm]

Happy, flapper-y New Year! It's been a fun one, hasn't it?

Thanks so much in particular to everyone who's been so wonderfully supportive as I completed The Black Feather Falls! It's been a long journey, but launching The Black Feather Falls at this year's Lakes Festival was a real high point of 2015 for me.

I've had a bunch of people ask how they can get their copy. Here's the rundown!

My Etsy Shop (This is the easiest way to get a personally dedicated copy, without waiting for spring conventions!)
Soaring Penguin (recommended for folks in the EU!)

Of course, you can also grab a copy from me personally! I'll be at MoCCA in the spring, with other appearances TBD!

Have a happy new year, you dapper people you!

It's here! The Black Feather Falls is here, and it looks really lovely! Order it now from Soaring Penguin - it's still listed as a pre-order, but believe me, this baby is in the building!

Thanks so much to John Anderson for all of his hard work getting it to press!

See everyone in London tonight, 19.10.15, at Gosh! where I'll be presenting at Laydeez do Comics!

And New Yorkers, I'll be making a launch announcement soon!

A Black Feather Falls Reading List [Oct. 14th, 2015|02:32 am]

[Tags|, , , ]

As the launch of The Black Feather Falls this weekend at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in the UK's beautiful Lake District, I've been putting together a list of books that were useful for me as I wrote The Black Feather Falls....enjoy!

PS See you Monday the 19th at Laydeez do Comics, at Gosh!

Duncan, Alastair. Art Deco. Thames and Hudson, 1988. A great primer on this movement.

Englund, Peter. The Beauty and The Sorrow: An Intimate History of the First World War. Knopf, 2011. Heartbreaking book that follows a series of individuals as they try to survive this epic conflict.

Ferguson, Niall. The Pity of War. Basic Books, 2000. The dark side of a dark conflict.

Gilbert, Martin. The Somme: Heroism and Horror in the First World War. Henry Holt, 2006. Another delve into unprecedented horror.

Hardwick, Mollie. The World of Upstairs, Downstairs. Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1976. A tie-in with the television series, which I recommend so highly for its unflinching treatment of the effects of war on the home front. Lots of great photographs.

Keegan, John. The First World War. Vintage, 2000. A good military overview.

MacGregor, Sheila. Traditional Fair Isle Knitting. Dover Press. 2003. Impressive social history of knitting in the Scottish Isles.

Moberg, Gunnie, and Schei, Liv Kjorsvik. Orkney Story. Hippocrene Books, 1985. An idiosyncratic glimpse of life, language and culture in the remote Scottish isles.

Rosenfield, Lucy D. Inside Art Deco. Schiffer, 2005. Great photos, so much glamor.

Stallings, Lawrence. The Doughboys: Story of the AEF 1917-1918. Harper, 1963. Very pulpy account of the US forces in World War I, not turning away from the serious military mistakes made by American commanders.

Tardi, Jacques. It Was The War of the Trenches. Fantagraphics, 2010. The definitive comics treatment of World War I, from a distinctly French perspective.

Baedeker Guide to Great Britain (via Google Books). 1901. Can't do anything about early 20th century travel without consulting Baedeker.
