The Girls Are Mighty Fine

I couldn’t be happier to get to be the recipient today of two brand new books hand delivered by Amy Martin, one of my favorite local cartoonists. If you haven’t already picked up copies of The Single Girls or her Bachelor Girl series of minis, I definitely suggest you make you way up to the Isotope’s mini-comics lounge and check them out. They’re pretty awesome.

I’m of the opinion that Playboy should hire Ms. Martin on to be their resident cartoonist, her comics style fits right in with the likes of Gahan Wilson, Erich Sokol, Phil Interlandi and other great cartoonists of years past who have worked for the magazine. Mark Frauenfelder at BoingBoing thinks Amy’s comics are like what you’d get “if Jules Feiffer were a woman and had a comic book based on Sex and the City”… which is a pretty great description of her work!

Stop on in and check out her latest handmade collection of strips, entitled The Girls Are Mighty Fine, on sale at this very minute here at the Isotope or online at Amy’s Etsy shop.

And don’t be shy, check out lots of her comic samples, sketches, and modern gal wisdom here:

    It’s true, Amy’s comics are a special combination of strong visuals and a modern day wit. She spins fine stories with her squiggles and lines…one might say mighty fine ones!

    I’m a fan of Amy’s work because she takes risks. Her comics are sassy and silly, but also sweet, thoughtful, bold, and poetic. That’s true for the artwork as well!
