Body, Horror, Comics with Author Jude Doyle
“Engaging with my demonic sea-monster tendencies has made me a lot healthier just as a dude” – Jude Doyle.
I’m joined by award-winning journalist, opinion writer, comics fan–now horror comic author Jude Ellison S. Doyle to talk about his new series Maw.
A provocative five-issue horror series by Doyle (Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy, and the Fear of Female Power) and artist A.L. Kaplan (Full Spectrum Therapy) that explores the anger of women trapped by society’s expectations and the reclamation of power through collective rage. Published by BOOM! Comics.
Jude Doyle is the author of two books of non-fiction: Trainwreck: The Women We Love to Hate, Mock, and Fear… and Why and Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy and the Fear of Female Power, which was named a Best Non-Fiction Book of 2019 by Kirkus Reviews and was shortlisted for Starburst Magazine’s Brave New Words award. Jude also founded the feminist blog Tiger Beatdown in 2008, led several successful social media awareness campaigns, and currently writes a weekly column at Medium. Maw is his first comic book.
