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)

Hey @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!

dungeonsdonuts said: Hey, thank you again for coming to TCAF in Toronto these past few years. Buying and reading your comics is what helped to convince me that comic-making was something I could pursue as an adult. Wishing you all the success with the release of your new book.

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!

Hello to this cascade of new followers: I like all of you.

Comics Panels at the Brooklyn Book Festival are announced, and I’m on one of them.

I’ll be on the “youth stoop” talking about Tomboy at 4pm, September 21st

Flavorwire posts exclusive Tomboy pages: 

Liz Prince has been a cult and beloved figure in the world of comics for awhile, and in her autobiographical book Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir, she discusses the subject of growing up, in her inimitable, honest and simple style. Prince was never a girly-girl, and watching her navigate between the two poles of who she was and the (pink) box people wanted her to fit into makes for a fascinating look at what “identity” means in the process of growing up. The book’s out on September 2nd, but we have an exclusive look at some pages now.

A Fallows-brand internet rant just wasn’t going to cut it for this one. So here’s a dumb comic about an amazing comic by the massively inspirational Liz Prince. Now go buy Tomboy, ya dummy! x

This comic by Jack Fallows just made my night, and I was already having a pretty damn good night!  

onehundredresolutions said: Just finished Tomboy. 100% the best comic I've read all year. I wish I had a more critical response for you; but it blew my mind! Keep kicking ass! <3

I am 100% so stoked to hear you say that, and I’m sure I’ll hear many critical responses in the future, but in the meantime, I’m just gonna let the good vibes wash over me.  

And for those of you who might have missed my announcement: Tomboy was accidentally shipped to comic stores a week early, so it’s out now at comic shops, and will be everywhere else September 2nd.

So, once upon a time I was selling a poster on eBay that I’d done for some bands that were favorites of mine in high school. And then both of the guys from both of those bands said some really ugly, irredeemable shit online while the auction was up. And so I took the auction down. At that point, the idea that someone would have my art for those bands proudly displayed on their wall made me unhappy to think about. And then, after I took the auction down, a few people wrote to me asking why, as they’d been following the auction or had bid on it, etc etc. And so I made a very brief statement clarifying why I took it down. I didn’t “@-reply” or tag anyone involved, I didn’t call for a boycott, I didn’t throw down any gauntlets. Just let my followers know what happened in as calm and magnanimous a way as I could think of.
And then one of my high school heroes called me a “creep” and an “insufferable twat” and referred to my poster as “asinine”. The asinine thing really seems like more of a vocabulary show-off than anything, as the word doesn’t really apply in any way to, you know, creating art to promote that dude’s band? But I’ll give him a pass since it’s basically the least stupid thing he’s said online in the past two days.
Anyhow. Just kinda felt like sharing that. I don’t really have a point here and I’m kinda too weirded out to really be, like, sad or angry or anything. So please don’t assume that. It’s just… you don’t not share something like this, right?
Fun side-story: One of those retweets and two of those favorites on Ben’s post came from that guy from last October who sent me straight-up one of the creepiest and stalkery-est series of emails I’ve gotten ever and his girlfriend. Haven’t heard from either of them in nearly a year until now. Huh.

Oh Ben Weasel, your lack internet restraint is almost charming.  In order to end a discourse with me today, he said &#8220;you must have a lot of cats&#8221;.  I kind of want to use that as a quote on my next book&#8230;

Review: Tomboy by Liz Prince

Review: Tomboy by @comicnrrd

tomboyChildren tend to get reduced to the simplest definitions: Girls like dresses and princesses and boys like trucks and sports. It doesn’t matter how true these things are or not — the pressure from parents and peers (and certainly, society) forces children into pretty narrow roles.

So what happens when you know early on you don’t fit into that?

Liz Prince reflects on growing up as a girl who always…
