I made a zine for SPX! A zine about my cat. I&#8217;m confident that it will sell like hotcakes.

This is the new comic I&#8217;ll be debuting at SPX 2014! The first issue of an ongoing series about a magical girl named Milly. You can pick up a copy at SPX or if you can&#8217;t make it to the show, you can pre-order a copy from the Space Pyrates store! Pre-orders will be shipped out after SPX. And you save on shipping if you pre-order Matt&#8217;s new book AML at the same time!

SPX TO ANNOUNCE INTERNATIONAL GUEST LINEUP
Tomorrow we’ve got a press release going out highlighting the international guests we’re excited to welcome to SPX 2014.
Some you may recognize immediately, others you may be encountering for the first time but every one of these talented creators is someone you should know!
Here’s the rundown!
Simon Hanselmann will arrive from Australia to debut Megahex, his eagerly awaited new collection from Fantagraphics, collecting the darkly comedic and unexpectedly moving comics that have earned him an enormous following online.
At SPX, Hanselmann will kick off a national book tour with Michael DeForge and Patrick Kyle; the trio will participate in a special live edition of the inkstuds radio show at SPX, led by regular Inkstuds host Robin McConnell and special guest co-host Brandon Graham ( royalboiler ).
Aisha Franz is a German cartoonist whose SPX debut and first book for Drawn &amp; Quarterly ( drawnandquarterly ) is Earthling, which has also been published in German, French, Italian, and Spanish.
Franz lives in Berlin where she is a member of the Treasure Fleet comics collective. In addition to an active illustration career she has contributed comics to Pitchfork Review ( pitchfork , Kus!, Kuti Kuti ( kushkomikss ), and many more publications. Her second graphic novel, Brigitte und der Perlen-hort, has been published in German and French.
Yvan Alagbé and Dominique Goblet will travel to SPX from France and Belgium, respectively, with a range of work from the avant-garde Brussels-based publishing house Frémok. Alagbé co-founded the influential French publishing house Éditions Amok, which later merged with the Belgian publisher Fréon to form Frémok and continues to champion poetic work at the borderline of comics and fine art.
Alagbé’s new book École de la Misère, rendered in beautiful ink and wash, further expresses his clear-eyed, penetrating career-long investigation into mysterious desire and explosive cultural conflict.
Goblet, an early contributor to the Fréon flagship anthology Frigorevue, has produced a challenging and beautiful body of work that productively troubles the distinctions between fiction and autobiography, and between narrative and poetic image-making.
At SPX she will debut the groundbreaking full-color graphic novel Plus si Entente, a book produced collaboratively with German cartoonist Kai Pfeiffer. Working internationally, the pair swapped pages and responded to ideas, images, compositions and colors proposed by the other to test the possibilities of narrative within the comics form.
Exhibiting as Frémok, Goblet and Alagbé will also bring with them many works from the publisher’s catalog, including the award-winning collection of Kamagurka and Herr Seele’s Cowboy Henk comic strips (an instant sell-out at MoCCA) and the American debut of Kamagurka and Seele’s brand new Cowboy Henk book, Histoire de la Belgique (pour tous).
Mana Neyesteni is an Iranian cartoonist and illustrator for economic, intellectual, political, cultural, and professional magazines. He is particularly known for his work for the newspaper Zan and Persian language Radio Zamaneh.
A 2006 political cartoon by Neyesteni prompted riots among the oppressed Azeri minority in Iran; the paper in which the cartoon appeared was promptly closed and Neyestani was imprisoned. Upon his temporary release three months later he left the country and currently resides in France. He is the recipient of the Cartoonists Rights Network International award for courage in editorial cartooning, 2010.
His graphic novel An Iranian Metamorphosis was originally published in French, and will debut in an English-language edition from Uncivilized Books at SPX.
Publisher, editor, critic and event organizer Daniel Jiménez Quiroz is the editor of Revista Larva, the leading Colombian comics anthology, which publishes work by artists from throughout South America. Larva has spun off the comics publishing house Editorial Robot, which has published work by artists including Peter Kuper and Powerpaola.
Quiroz also co-organizes the Entreviñetas comics festival which is now in its fifth year and has featured guests including Gabrielle Bell, Ruppert &amp; Mulot, and Anders Nilsen. At SPX, Quiroz will exhibit work from Colombia and will participate in a special panel about Spanish-language comics, including Spanish critic Santiago García, Colombian critic Pablo Guerra, and American publisher Scott Brown.
Quiroz’s visit to SPX is supported by the Ministerio de Cultura of Colombia. Many other international publishers and artists will exhibit at this year’s event, including London-based New Zealander Roger Langridge and Australian cartoonists Frank Candiloro, Matt Emery, Luke Humphris, Matthew Hoddy, Caitlin Major, Nicholas McIvor and Lex Sugden.
How about that line-up?!?


Hey! How about that, we’re in an official announcement! We’re official. Officially official.

Guess who&#8217;s going to SPX again this year! That&#8217;s right! ME!

*PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE THIS CAPTION*

The above pages are Chapter 2 of my graphic memoir Tomboy, which will be released on September 2nd.  In addition to the preview zine (which was given out at comic conventions and book expos across the country this summer) I wanted to give folks who weren’t able to get one a sneak peek at the book.  This is a different chapter than was in the preview zine, so if you’ve got one of those as well, then you’ve been able to read TWO CHAPTERS of the book before anyone else!  Lucky ducks!

I hope you enjoy the pages, will share them with your friends and followers, and are looking forward to the day when you can get Tomboy at your favorite bookstore/comic shop!  (If you just can’t wait, you can preorder book directly from the publisher HERE).  I will be posting my book tour dates in support of Tomboy at the end of the week, so stay tuned!

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for sharing this preview. We’re so excited for September 2nd!

Yesssssss. Get so stoked for Liz’s new book. Read this preview chapter!

OMG I can’t wait to read this. That last page could be from my life! But as a teenager, haha.

Haha yes this was me too! Wrestling with my cousins (and them never letting me win! >.<)
