|Girls Are Not Chicks: coloring book
||"Girls are not Chicks is a progressive-minded coloring book by Jacinta Bunnell & Julie Novak. 32 pages, with color cover. Girls are not Chicks provides young people with concepts that defy and just plain irk mainstream non-empowering society and culture. In it we find a plethora of people devoted to breaking stereotypes. We begin with the ballerina who has a wrench in her hand, continue to a young girl wanting to overthrough a dictatorship one person at a time, to a clown who lives to do nothing more than make people laugh. From body self-acceptance to Loving each other, this book teaches people, young and old to accept important things and to grow, reach and learn. Bold, clear illustraitions, make it easy to color, and ending with a very entertaining biography of the collaborators." (Quoted in North West Zine Works) Available to order from North West Zine Works
|Lovely Ugly Cruel World
|from the comic artist: "LUCW is a self-published serial comic by AR about important thinkgs, like life, death, cigarettes, and getting over highschool. A recent graduate, Amelia, travels through a wasteland of annoyance, along the way meeting a depressed writer named Francis and his computer geek pal, Sam. Much of LUCW is a rambling rumination on death, change, and growing up, told with biting humor and sensitivity." (Quoted in Lovely Ugly Cruel world website)
|Comics by cartoonist and writer, Jessica Abel from Chicago, Illinoise. "I am an ardent and declared feminist, not afraid of the label, but I simply allow my view of the world to inform my writing, not dictate it. My comics are implicitly feminist (because I am), but not explicitly so (because that’s not what I’m interested in writing about)."

"Ariel Schrag returns with the sequel series to her acclaimed works Definition and Potential in this 40-page, magazine-sized first issue. In this issue, Ariel begins the chronicle of her senior year of high school with an attention to detail and the nuances of teenage life that is as universal as her own experiences are unique. As she struggles internally with her own infatuations and conflicts, she and her friends struggle to define "it" - the elusive quality that some people seem to have, but others don't.
