Has anyone read Cathy Malkasian’s Percy Gloom? New York Magazine ran an excerpt, and I am intrigued:
Also, Chris Oliveros at D+Q posted another page of Lynda Barry’s upcoming “What It Is”:
Just in case anyone else is interested in my other favorite female cartoonists: Renee French, Julie Doucet, Hope Larson, Alison Bechdel, Roz Chast, Lilli Carré, and Jessica Abel. I probably left a ton out, but those are the ones I can think of.
Who are your favorites?
Yeah, Percy Gloom looks great! I know Liza Donnelly has done a bunch of work for the New Yorker. Sadly, I don’t know many long-form comics ladies, though I’ve been curious about Liz Prince’s book, Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed.

Mark — will have to check out Liza and liz, thanks
John D — I have been trying to get ahold of her new book, but it’s taking forever to come to the library
Kim — glad there are some newbies for you to check out!
Frank Stack says
Yes. There are lots of others, besides the excellent ones you mentioned. Nicole Hollander, Marian Henley, Carole Lay, are some others that come to mind. “For Better or Worse”, to my my mind, remains the best nationally syndicated continuity.
