This summer, Fantagraphics-published artist Megan Kelso released a re-print of her collection of earlier work, including the early minicomic Girlhero strips, titled Queen of the Black Black. (You can read my review of it here.) The lucky dog that I am, I got to ask her a few questions on what it's like to be a comics artist who went from all-DIY roots to being serialized in the New York Times Magazine. (All of Watergate Sue is available on the magazine's website; I ... Read More

I've been wearing the same damn swimsuit since 2005, and my too-small bikini bottom is causing me more anxiety than if I were to swim with the sharks or go on the Jersey Shore boardwalk. Still, swimsuit shopping isn't my forte; I hate the paper crotch strips and I'm just too lazy. But these monster swimsuits from Iron Fist may finally convince me to ditch my dingy bikini. These freaky tops and bottoms are sure to get you attention - just be prepared to say, "Ahem, ... Read More

I never knew what it was like to lose a dear pet. My family has had our share of pet fish - RIP Tokyo and Jelly - and my feeder mice, Meece Witherspoon and Meeces Pieces, both died while I was away at college. None of these losses hit me hard; I didn’t necessarily connect with the fish and my most memorable days as a mouse owner consisted of them pooping on me, then escaping and eating pencils off my desk.But while Freckles was still alive, I tried hard not ...

I’m one of those girls who wish they’d been born earlier so they could’ve attended the Evergreen State College during the early ‘90s and spent their days xeroxing zines and comics at their lame part time jobs. But now I’m a Generation Z college student on the east coast, reading Jeffrey Brown and Lynda Barry and spending too much time (and money) at coffee shops. (Sometimes, I sit at a local Barnes and Noble and pretend to be drawing ... Read More
When I hear “tape art”, I often think of duct tape dresses or hall decorations in college dorms. If I heard that someone was pushing to have “tape art” in a gallery space, I would most likely question the artist’s intent and skill level. But the sophistication and quirkiness of Kayt Hester’s masking tape pieces make me rethink what goes on a canvas, let alone the walls of a gallery show.Using ripped up bits of ordinary black ...
