This book is a long time coming and had some significant hurdles along the way. I’m so proud of the team for their continued efforts to get this done and I’m glad that we can finally share this story with fans. I laughed out loud through the whole book and I hope everyone gets as big a kick out of it as I did. <3
I’ll be selling Frankie Comics (with issues #1-3, stickers, posters, shirts, and more), Garfield, and the Steven Universe: Greg Universe special. Mike King (@pleasekeepwarm) will be with me, selling his books and shirts; and we’ll also have a bunch of lapel pins, As You Were, and Ben Passmore’s (@daygloayhole) new book Goodbye from our many buds over at Silver Sprocket (@silversprocket).
We’ll be at booth I-268 on the second floor. Come say hi. <3

LA Zine Fest is free to attend and is full of amazing creators of zines and mini-comics. It’s my favourite local show and I’m stoked to be able to exhibit there again this Sunday.
I’m at table 90 (listed as Rachel Dukes) sharing a table with friends Amanda and Geoffrey from The Devastator, next to buds Kevin Uehlein and Silver Sprocket. I was planning to have three amazing new books for the show but they were all bumped to mid-month releases, so you’ll just have to catch those at zineMELT on the 19th. This weekend I’ll have copies ofFrankie Comics #1 through #3 (with original art from Frankie Comics #2 through #4), posters, stickers, dolls, and other original art (queer anthologies, Garfield, Steven Universe, etc). I’ll also have the punk cartoonist anthology As You Were #4 from those inimitable folks over at Silver Sprocket!
Oh! I’m reading at the LAZF Pre-Fest Reading on Friday.
The Pre-Fest reading is this Friday, March 4th, at Ave. 50 Studios – 131 N. Ave. 50, Los Angeles, CA. 90042 – starting at 7:30 p.m. There’s definitely going to be a bunch of Frankie Comics in there but maybe some other secret stuff too if I feel like switching gears. There’s a lot of cool folks on the docket so I’d recommend visiting and checking them out. <3
