Hello, dear friends. It's been a long time between posts, but I am here to tell you that my magnum opus, my 15-years-in-the-making graphic novel, Over Easy, a tale of sex, drugs, rock'n'roll and eggs in the late 1970s in Oakland, CA, will be in stores April 15, or you can pre-order it on Amazon by clicking here.
Yes, it's over 270 pages all about my post-art-school waitressing career in a world awash in cocaine, weed, and pre-AIDS-era promiscuous sex. In this nifty poster designed by my fantastic publisher, Drawn and Quarterly, you can see where I'll be if you want to come out and say hello. I would love that! What is not to love? It's got it all: vituperative fry cooks, sultry-but-vindictive waitresses, clever repartee, and all this in a world where no one was saying "Just say no." Everyone was saying "YES!" to EVERYTHING. So here, at the intersection of hippie and punk, in this fictionalized memoir, my alter ego Madge attempts to navigate the moral swamp of a cockeyed decade. If you lived through this decade yourself, or you wish you had, this book is an absolute MUST! You haven't seen anything like this in the world of graphic fiction before.
