Juicy Mother

January 18th, 2005

That’s the title of a new comix collection from Jennifer Camper and Soft Skull Press, available here. Alison’s “Oppressed Minority Cartoonist” panel is in there, along with a comix jam she did with Camper, Howard Cruse, Diane DiMassa, Rupert Kinnard, and Ivan Velez, Jr.

From the publisher’s blurb: “Juicy Mother includes comix about an older butch dyke and her Lolita, an African-American gay man coming of age, an Arab Muslim dyke searching for her identity, two big hairy men getting married, a cynical Latina teen encountering aliens and a wild cartoon jam. In a genre especially known for being dominated by straight white men, Juicy Mother is an alternative to alternative comix. The collection places emphasis on the voices least represented in the comic world. As such, the stories within are exceptionally exuberant and carefree.”
