Queer Comix in New York June 16 - 18th!!!

Three nights of Queer Comix hit New York in June. Okay. This week. Well, starting tomorrow. But --- All events are FREE!!! Some of my friends (Jen, Joan, Ivan and Howard) from Juicy Mother will be headlining three incredible events. If you can make it to New York --- come!!! I'm trying to hit at least --- well, possibly --- some of these events. Come out and enjoy!

Howard Cruse, the Godfather of Gay Comix, is teaming up with cartoonists, Jennifer Camper and Ivan Velez, Jr. to celebrate the new 15th anniversary edition of Howard Cruse's graphic novel, "Stuck Rubber Baby," released this month, featuring a new introduction by Alison Bechdel.

Three cartoonists who mirror and critique queer culture and society discuss their work, how they came to it, their influences, styles and approaches. All this and sizzling, hot comix, too.
Howard Cruse - Stuck Rubber Baby, Gay Comix, Wendel, Barefootz, etc.
Jennifer Camper - Juicy Mother, subGURLZ, Rude Girls and Dangerous Women, et.
Ivan Velez, Jr. - Tales of the Closet, Blood Syndicate, Ghost Writer, Static, etc.
