Back from my mini vacation. I managed to find a little time to scribble in Ye Olde Sketchbooke. I’m really liking these pens, and I can’t wait to do a real story with them.

P.S. If Liz Prince reads this, I love your work, and I can’t wait to read your book, TOMBOY. So there.

Liz Prince’s comics are exactly the type of comics I want to see more of in the world. Her work lies somewhere between the self-reflection of Jeffery Brown and the raucous energy of James Kochalka, examining herself and her surroundings through the lens of a humorist. Her comics are easily digestible while simultaneously impactful and thought provoking, which gives her work an accessibility a lot of other cartoonists can lack.

When not focusing on punk rock or cats Prince’s comics can lean towards cynicism, but she uses humor to keep from ever becoming bleak. Even when she’s her own punchline, the laughs are never meant to be mean spirited or overly self-depricating. Instead, there’s a type of tongue-in-cheek feeling that comes from the cartoonist’s knowing that her reader can relate on some level to the situation. We laugh with her because we’ve all been there. Prince is incredibly honest about her relationships and inner-most feelings, inviting readers to join her in examining some of life’s pitfalls.

heyluchie asked: Hi Liz! I have a question about your new book ! Are you gonna have some copies to sell in your shop? As I live in Europe, I won't be able to find it in comic book shops :( my only way to get it is online. I wanna buy it in a way that will benefit you though (I'm pretty sure buying it on amazon is probably not a good thing). Have a nice day !

I forwarded this question to Liz’s personal tumblr (fuckyoulizprince). I’m sure she wouldn’t mind where you got it, but she may have more insight on places for you to pick it up locally!

At last, Tomboy!! And while I was at the book release event last night, I also bought a Marceline comic that features a comic also drawn by Liz Prince.  

Bebe is enjoying the graphic novel too.

although it’s quite different from how I write comics, it’s definitely inspiring to me.  Most of all, I relate to the story and it’s heartwarming and honest and lots of good things.

A Fallows-brand internet rant just wasn’t going to cut it for this one. So here’s a dumb comic about an amazing comic by the massively inspirational Liz Prince. Now go buy Tomboy, ya dummy! x

Review: Tomboy by @comicnrrd

tomboyChildren tend to get reduced to the simplest definitions: Girls like dresses and princesses and boys like trucks and sports. It doesn’t matter how true these things are or not — the pressure from parents and peers (and certainly, society) forces children into pretty narrow roles.

So what happens when you know early on you don’t fit into that?

Liz Prince reflects on growing up as a girl who always…
