Some photos from this year’s fabulous Small Press Expo. I sold out of Tomboy on the first day and I’m kicking myself for thinking 72 copies would have carried me through the weekend. Apologies to everyone who came on Sunday and left without a copy of the book!! Thanks to Nicole J. Georges for being a wonderful table mate and prom date, to Raina and Dave for giving me some encouraging words about Tomboy, to Greg Means for being the monkey on my back, and to all the friends and fans who stopped by my table to chat.
SPX 2105 will be the TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME IF I WET THE BED?! I’ve been drawing comics for 20 years, and for 10 of those I’ve had my books published by the wonderful folks at Top Shelf Productions. #blessed.
This weekend I won the Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent. Thank you, to everyone, with my complete heart. What “promising new talent” tells me is that people are rooting for me. I’m being lifted up. And it feels really really good. I won’t let you down. Thank you, thank you.

Cathy G. Johnson gave the best Ignatz acceptance speech because she is a dynamo.
Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed? by Liz Prince
A short and sweet comic composed of snippets of a shared life. The comic includes those silly exchanges between two people in love; those silly exchanges that, in retrospect, really are what make a relationship so special and meaningful. If you’ve ever been in love, you’ll appreciate this one. Team Liz Prince!
Local comics creator Liz Prince’s first graphic novel!
The trials and rewards of being the kind of
girl person — and then the kind of woman grown-up person — you are happy being. If you ever felt like you were doing it all wrong, like you were totally alone with your weirdness, check out this book.
Also, it is funny as heck.
I love this write up
tonysomethingsomething said: Hi Liz! I have a question about your new book ! Are you gonna have some copies to sell in your shop? As I live in Europe, I won't be able to find it in comic book shops :( my only way to get it is online. I wanna buy it in a way that will benefit you though (I'm pretty sure buying it on amazon is probably not a good thing). Have a nice day ! (via heyluchie)
The book is available in Europe, as I’ve seen photos of comic shops in Berlin and the UK that have the book, but if you’re looking for a French version, that will be out from Ca Et La shortly!
I haven’t decided if I’m going to be selling Tomboy in my webstore: filling orders can end up being a lot of work (even though that means I get more of the money). I will probably offer personalized versions around the holidays.
I hope however you get the book, that you like it!

Thanks! My favorite compliment is that my comics made someone else want to draw comics of their own. Hopefully I’ll see you at TCAF again this year!
