PeePee PooPoo Release Party, Aug 23rd

7:30 pm

Four issues into the series and we finally get PeePee PooPoo #1! Was it time travel, or a marketing move? The world may never know! In this issue: Caroline discovers a fresh start is surprisingly hard to make in “Ah, Philly.” Romance blossoms in “First Date,” a classic Alison Bechdel comic gets an update in “Femme and Butch,” and a night out turns complicated in “Stoned Again.” Caroline Cash’s gay, modern take on the ‘60s underground comic continues to make readers say “hell yeah.”

Join us in store at Quimby’s on Fri, August 23rd at 7:30pm with readings by Caroline Cash, Gina Wynbrant, and Bonnie Guerra!

Caroline Cash (above) is a cartoonist who used to live in Chicago. Her work has been featured in The New Yorker, VICE, The Nib, The Chicago Reader, and various other publications. She is currently working on her award winning series PeePeePooPoo. She is a Capricorn. @cash_browns
