I just released 3 new zines, and you can find them all at http://www.etsy.com/shop/saracenturyart ! Here’s what’s new:
New Girlfriend #5
Oh shit! I used to do this comic about my ex-girlfriends and all the feelings I have called New Girlfriend. The most common response to it was, “Wow, you sure have a lot of feelings,” to which I could only respond, “Yeah dude.” I don’t like to talk about feelings quite as much as I used to in my mid-20s before I was traumatized a bunch of more times, but that’s why New Girlfriend #5 is just a comic about 1. Awkward dates 2. Sex dreams I have had and 3. Getting depressed and watching literally 30 Ingmar Bergman movies in a month.
How to Become a Lesbian Vampire Movie
This zine is exactly what it says it is. Compiling what amounts to 5 different articles I have written for various publications on the subject of lesbian vampires, there comes this zine: How to Become a Lesbian Vampire Movie. This breaks down the history of lesbian vampires, which is a genre that was invented by and for dudes, but ended up playing a huge role in my emotional development regardless. What better person is here to learn from than me, the world’s leading authority on lesbian vampires?
