Check out the Gilbert Bouchard book collection

Shout-out to the University of Alberta Library system for featuring selections from The Gilbert Bouchard Collection of Postmodernism, Visual Culture, and Pop Literature at their Rutherford, Cameron, and Bibliothèque Saint-Jean branches this month!

The display is a result of a librarian’s curiosity about the collection and the role that some of its comics played in her own life.

Please read Sonya Leung’s story in the University of Alberta’s Quad newsletter. I hope you can catch the displays this month and someday check out (literally!) the books in the collection.


Wayward Sisters

waywardsisters-coverKickstarter anthologies have become an important–and fun–way for female cartoonists to get their work out in the world.

This spring, Wayward Sisters: An Anthology of Monstrous Women will haunt bookstores with 224 pages of beautiful and fascinating comics about female monsters, by female writers and artists.

Anthology editor Allison O’Toole and contributors Emmanuelle Chateauneuf, Janice Liu, and Cassandra Khaw kindly took time out to answer my questions about the anthology and their contributions to it for Sequential Tart.
