Join Liz Prince as she signs comics and answers questions at Quimby’s

Liz Prince has been drawing comics ever since she was in 3rd grade, and her work has been published since 1994 when she began regularly contributing to the Santa Fe based zine Are We There Yet? From there, the offers didn’t stop coming. Her comics have been featured in several zines/comic anthologies, 5 gallery shows, and she has produced 2 mini-comics. Influenced by autobiographical greats like Evan Dorkin, Ariel Schrag, James Kochalka, and Jeffrey Brown, her comics mix her real-life foibles with charming cartooning and comic timing. Her fans have described her work as being “cute,” making them feel “warm & fuzzy,” or simply being “too much information.” Liz’s first full length book Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed? explores the banal and yet somehow fascinating intimacies of her first true love.

Delayed Replays, the second comics collection from Ignatz Award winner Liz Prince further explores how one incredibly self-centered twenty-something finds contentment in her everyday life. From the amusing to the banal, Liz’s comics are slice-of-life at its best, or if not best, at least most relatable. These strips could easily find their home in many alternative weekly papers, but Liz is too lazy to post them anywhere but her live journal or her website.
