Hey, Grand Rapids! Missed me at Grand Rapids Zine Fest? Well, you can pick up a copy of Sorry Mom Comix’s two most popular titles, American Spirits: Freelance Ghostbusters, and Trans Man Walking, at Vault of Midnight’s Grand Rapids location! Head on down, check out one of Grand Rapids’ finest comic book shops, and pick up a copy of something SMCx-ey while you’re there!

“I was empathizing (especially with the comic about hair), recognizing the complicated nature of transphobia and masculinity, and enjoying Santagata’s efficient and cutting punchlines all at once—an incredible range for such a short zine!”
Alenka Figa writes all about TMW #1 at Women Write About Comics! Check out her thorough dissection of the zine, and its debut at Chicago Zine Fest last week, here!
Holy crap, I’m so excited!! TMW #1 is out at the Sorry Mom Comix store right now! Collecting semi-autobiographical comics about coming out and staying put from January to March of 2016, TMW is a zine in the classic style: Pen and ink, hella personal, and lots of “activity” pages for you to giggle at to your heart’s content.
(TMW #1 also officially enters the wide world of zine circulation at the Chicago Zine Fest on April 29th!! I’ll be doing a reading from TMW #1 at CZF on the night of the 29th as well (along with other totally awesome zinesters), and it’s free (with snacks! and drinks! I hear!), so you should totally come on down!)
If you’re not in Chicago and/or wanna get your hands on the zine before the big launch, skip on over to the SMCx store!
Ready to relive your most uncomfortable experiences as a fellow queer / troublemaker / person who is awkward around their parents? Trans Man Walking #1 comes out here in the Sorry Mom Comix store on Tuesday, April 19th, and makes its real-life debut at the end of the month at Chicago Zine Fest on April 30th!
The buck doesn’t stop there, though – I’m doing a live reading of TMW #1 at the CZF Exhibitor Reading the night before, April 29th, at Workshop Chicago! Both the zine fest and the reading are free, so you should totally come support me / see me make a fool of myself in Chicago on the weekend of the 29th/30th!
TMW #1 is (obviously!) something I’m pretty proud of, and it’s been my first published comic/zine since coming out publically (try saying that five times fast), so it’s near and dear to my heart & I’m pumped to share it!
Parts and parcel(s?) of Trans Man Walking are now being released periodically on Tapastic! TMW on Tapstic will update Mondays and Fridays until the launch of TMW #1 at Chicago Zine Fest at the end of April (at the very least!), so stay tuned and enjoy the imminent comix!
