I Survived Gwar

Sample panel from I Survived Gwar

Gwar performed in my hometown, and even though I'm the wimpiest little girl and not even a huge fan of hardcore metal, I went to the show. What? It's Gwar! And then I created a minicomic about it.

16pp, tiny-sized, $1.00 (includes shipping)

Comics and writing for other publications

Women of Marvel: Celebrating Seven Decades: For this fun collection starring Marvel Comics' women characters, my pal Jeph York and I collaborated on historical research and writing introductions for each decade. If you want to know where Psylocke and Ms. Marvel fit into history with Rosie the Riveter and Billie Jean King, this is the book for you.

Womanthology: Yeah, the Kickstarter phenom comics anthology highlighting women creators! I teamed up as an artist with writer Lisa Fortuner for a colorful four-page story about alter egos, love, ray guns, and kicking the poop out of robots in space.

Inbound: I'm a long-time member of the comics collective Boston Comics Roundtable and contribute to their comics anthology, Inbound. Look for my double-identity story "unWendy" in Inbound #2, my tale of Boston's world-famous burlesque theater "The Old Howard" in Inbound #4 - A Comic History of Boston (also adapted as a short radio drama by WBUR's Radio Boston!), and my two-page giggle at a nutty English tradition "Chase That Cheese!" in Inbound #5.

I Saw You...: The Craigslist Missed Connections-inspired anthology I Saw You... has my one-page comic "Hello There Doctor Love" (aka, the one about the colonoscopy).

The Girls' Guide to Guys' Stuff: An anthology of guy-inspired comics by women published by Friends of Lulu, The Girls' Guide to Guys' Stuff has my short comic "Who Loves Neckties?" (spoiler alert: it's me, I like neckties!).

And Don't Forget the Droids: The third in a series of Star Wars fan comic anthologies by indy comics creators, this issue includes my little story "Found in Translation", which reveals that R2D2 might not exactly be the most awesome coworker ever.

Planet Wifey: In 2009, I collaborated with writer Clarence Smith Jr. and drew his married-life webcomic Planet Wifey. My strips are available in the archives from February - October 2009.
