Heart Shaped Tears by Abby Jame
“In the age of the Anthropocene, girls are tired and jaded. And yet, we are the last reminders of glittering purity. Not dumb sexual purity, but light and love, laughing in beds, sneaking out like the most important thing in the entire world is on the other side of your parent’s driveway. We feel deeply, we express when we feel like it, we cry Heart Shaped Tears.”
Comics and illustrations about aliens, elves and boys who don’t text back from the sci-fi sad girl Abby Jame.

American Cult edited by Robyn Chapman
From its earliest days, America has been home to spiritual seekers.
In 1694, the religious tolerance of the Pennsylvania Colony enticed a Transylvanian monk and his forty followers to cross the Atlantic. Almost two hundred years later, a charismatic preacher founded a utopian community in Oneida, New York, that practiced socialism and free love. In the 1960s and ’70s, a new generation of seekers gathered in vegetarian restaurants in Los Angeles, Satanic coffee shops in New Orleans, and fortified communes in Philadelphia. And in the twenty-first century, gurus use self-help seminars and get-rich-quick schemes
to evangelize to their flocks.
Across the decades, Americans in search of divine truths have turned to unconventional prophets for the answers. Some of these prophets have demanded their faith, fortunes, and even their very lives. In American Cult, over twenty cartoonists explore the history of these groups with clarity and empathy—looking beyond the scandalous headlines to find the human stories within.
Featuring the talents of cartoonists Steve Teare, Emi Gennis, Ellen Lindner, Rosa Colón, Janet Harvey, Jim Rugg, Andrew Greenstone, Lara Antal, Josh Kramer, Mike Dawson, Ryan Carey, Mike Freiheit, Jesse Lambert, Ben Passmore, Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg, Vreni Stollberger, J.T. Yost, Robyn Chapman, Robert Sergel, Lonnie Mann, and Box Brown.
