FOLKS – if you’re in the Athens/Georgia area today, please join Missy and fellow zinesters, JOE CARLOUGH and KATIE HAEGELE, as well as musicians K & KEIKO (KISHI BASHI!) at AVID BOOKSHOP tonight at 6pm. Joe and Katie are on a weekend-long tour from Philadelphia, sharing and reading from their self-published oeuvre. Missy will be opening with a few readings from her comic-journals, and she’ll also have a handful of her zines and books for sale. Festivities will close with music from the amazing K & Keiko Ishibashi. We would love to see you all this Sunday evening!
Big shout out to ANN-MARIE of the Aberdeen, UK-based KITTEN BREATH ZINE and KITTEN BREATH DISTRO for the brilliant package full-o-fun we got this weekend! Missy contributed a little comic to the latest issue of Kitten Breath and we were thrilled to finally see it in person.
There was a little drawstring bag filled with cute stickers, colorful foam bits, cutouts, confetti, candy, and all sorts of cat-related ephemera. It was all UNABASHEDLY TWEE and we loved it:

Well, it has been a long road, but I celebrated my Athens-versary in July! I can remember packing up my car and making the 12 hour drive from Pittsburgh to Athens. It doesn’t feel like i have lived here as long as I have, really. Athens has grown and changed so much in the time i have lived here. And I would have never guessed I would be part of that change. I love having my Tofu Baby comic in the paper, and I love having our very own Mini Gallery down town. I love that we have a house, and I love that I have Raoul, Nilla, and Oreo to live in it with me.
