The comics industry in 2015 is going through some amazingly positive mutations and here at the Isotope we can think of no better time to celebrate two legends of independent comics who altered the landscape of free expression in comics and paved the way for the world of comics as we know it today. As far back as the mid 70s Gregory and Barr lit that all-important spark at the forefront of today’s revolution in feminist, LGBT*, autobio, gender politics, anthrofluidity, and genre mashup fiction comics. We followers of the artform’s evolution are forever in debt to these true comix legends!
Roberta Gregory is the multiple award winning writer/artist best known for NAUGHTY BITS STARRING BITCHY BITCH, as well as DYNAMITE DAMSELS, WINGING IT, SHEILA AND THE UNICORN, ARTISTIC LICENTIOUSNESS, the popular LIFE’S A BITCH collection and also BITCHY BUTCH: WORLD’S ANGRIEST DYKE.
Donna Barr is a fellow multiple award winning writer/artist behind THE DESERT PEACH, and also the gorgeous STINZ series, HADER AND THE COLONEL, BOSOM ENEMIES, ZELL, SWORDDANCER, THE BARR GIRLS, the AFTERDEAD collections and also BOSOM ENEMIES.
Roberta and Donna are going to be shipping us a number of their rare books that are of the long-lost variety, as well as their print-on-demand books, and comics that we haven’t seen at a distributor in far too long. We invite you to come meet them, get some signatures and sketches, and be as inspired by them as we are!
