Pssst…wanna buy some comic art?

December 14th, 2004 | Uncategorized

Alison’s been too busy working on a lifeblood-sucking graphic novel to take on her usual freelance work and speaking engagments this year. So now, in a flagrant attempt to drum up some cash, she’s selling a batch of recent comic stips at the low, low, bargain price of $200 each, plus shipping. (Normally, when she’s not so desperate, these go for upwards of $450.) These are hand-drawn, signed originals. Each strip is drawn in india ink on two separate pages of 9×14 archival bristol board. Eminently suitable for framing. Start your own art collection! If you’re interested in purchasing a strip, contact us at

Here’s a short description of each piece, and a link to it on the PlanetOut archive.

#419, “The Candidate.” In which Lois strategically pads her Bush flightsuit, and we meet Ginger’s future dog.
#426, “Breastiality.” In which Ginger dons a wonderbra and Stuart ponders becoming a stay-at-home dad.
#437, “Betrothal or Betrayal.” In which Clarice and Toni stand in line to get married at City Hall and Mo makes a nuisance of herself.
#445, “A-lyin’ in the sand.” In which Mo’s friends stage an intervention.
#450, “What is the first part of politics? Education.” In which Ginger expounds on the timeliness of Orwell’s “1984.”

UPDATE (12/16) Wow. All of these have been purchased. Or claimed, anyway. Thank you, everyone! The sales haven’t been finalized yet, though. If you’re interested in a strip, feel free to let me know in case something falls through.

    While I certainly wish Alison and crew the best of
    luck with selling the strips, but…

    “…working on a lifeblood-sucking graphic novel”

    Good grief, Cathy, I hope you don’t think you
    can leave this like this?! Details, we need

    Enquiring minds want (need) to know…


  2. Hey, Nichael. I’ve been yammering about this graphic memoir for so many years, I forget that not everybody knows about it. It’s about my childhood with my closeted queer dad, who killed himself when I was nineteen. Kind of intense, as you might imagine, but not without a certain macabre humor–or so I like to think. Anyhow, it’s a huge frickin’ project and I’m drawing my ass off. Houghton Mifflin’s publishing it in 2006.
