My latest column for The Comics Journal explores incarnations of witches, exorcism, and vampires in modern-day narrative with comics by Andrew Pannell, Cathy G. Johnson, and GG.
Unholy Shapes by Annie Mok
Kevin and I are proud to announce Annie Mok’s Unholy Shapes as the first book of the Ley Lines series which will debut at CAB. Ley Lines is a quarterly publication dedicated to exploring the intersection of comics and the various fields of art & culture that inspire us. In Unholy Shapes, a dissociative young trans person binges on drugs, has bad Craigslist sex, and struggles with the troubled legacy of Expressionist painter Egon Schiele.
Unholy Shapes debuts for CAB, co-published by Czap Books & Grindstone Comics

Thanks to everyone who read & enjoyed the zine at Indiecade. Lots of people told me (after reading it) what their favorite class was, and I kinda love hearing stuff like that, so feel free to comment with your fave! It’ll warm my heart.
… & let me know what you think ♥
Ever wondered what that band I’m in that has no internet presence sounds like?

Super excited to be co-publishing this with Kevin!!
Preview and in-progress shots from Ghosts of Schiele (working title). Grindstone Comics and Czap Books co-publish the 24-pager for Comic Arts Brooklyn on Nov. 8-9 as the first issue of their Ley Lines series, inviting different cartoonists to make work in response to fine artists. The book details my original failed attempt to make a graphic novel about Austrian Expressionist painter Egon Schiele, Schiele’s life, and my drugged out fucked up dissociative early twentysomething self-destruction.
Some of the above drawings are drawn after Schiele drawings and paintings, which tell much of the story.
That’s me with Toby Jones and Madeline Queripel, listening to Eric Reynolds of Fanta’s guest lecture in the MCAD auditorium.
Look for this at CAB!!
