Shortpants Observer #1 is out!

The Shortpants Observer is a beautiful new anthology put together by my friends over at Shortpants Press. It features 72 pages of work by four Chicago based cartoonists- Anya Davidson, Becca Taylor, Jeremy Tinder, and myself. ( I don't know why it still feels strange to me to be included in a group of Chicago cartoonists. I guess I'll always be a Jersey girl at heart.)

My story is 16 pages, two color, entitled "Four Short Comics About Death." This comic covers hot topics such as fear-of-death, sport loving hamsters, killing plants and revenge-seeking unicorns. It's the first thing I've published in color, and I'm pretty excited about it.
The people at Shortpants truly did a beautiful job putting this together, and I'm sure this will be only the first of any wonderful issues. So, you should look at it, and tell people about it, and remember to drink 8 glasses of water a day, but not enough to kill you. I'll have copies with me at SPX in October and APE in November, or you can buy your very own copy here.
