Rick Worley’s “A Waste of Time” Out November From Northwest Press
Official Press Release
The latest book from Northwest Press is Rick Worley’s over-the-top comic strip collection, A Waste of Time. If you like your autobiographical comics with a heaping helping of self-deprecation and sardonic wit—and misbehaving cartoon animals—then this book is right up your alley.
Foul-mouthed, sex-obsessed and misanthropic, Rick is no ordinary cute cartoon rabbit. The strips in this hysterically funny, surprisingly sweet collection range from fantasy tales about a closeted fundamentalist teddy bear, an oversexed fox, and a doomed robot love affair to autobiographical comics that share maybe a little too much information about the author. This first full-length collection of irreverent and sweet comic strips from Rick Worley features a foreword by StevieD and EvilJeff from the Comic Book Queers podcast.
Robert Kirby, creator of Curbside and the anthologies Boy Trouble and THREE, says “Beautifully drawn, hilarious, wistful, profane and very human, Rick Worley’s A Waste of Time knocked me out.”
Howard Cruse, underground comics legend, creator of Wendel and editor of the classic Gay Comix, says, “Rick Worley’s insightful Waste of Time comic strips are simultaneously tender and perverse—like his bunny.”
A Waste of Time is 136 pages, retails for $19.99 and is published by Northwest Press, which publishes graphic novels and comics collections by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender comics creators. The book is available to retailers direct from the publisher as well as through Diamond Comic Distributors using item #SEP111192. Northwest Press books are also available through Haven Distro, Prerogatives/Pride Catalog, Last Gasp, and Bulldog Books (Australia).
