Girl Town

Carolyn Nowak (a & w & c)

Diana got hurt—a lot—and she’s decided to deal with this fact by purchasing a life-sized robot boyfriend. Mary and La-La host a podcast about a movie no one’s ever seen. Kelly has dragged her friend Beth out of her comfort zone—and into a day at the fantasy market that neither of them will forget.

Girl Town collects the Ignatz Award-winning stories “Radishes” and “Diana’s Electric Tongue” together with several other tales of young adulthood and the search for connection. Here are her most acclaimed mini-comics and anthology contributions, enhanced with new colors and joined by brand-new work.

Bold, infatuated, wounded, or lost, Nowak’s girls shine with life and longing. Their stories—depicted with remarkable charm and insight—capture the spirit of our time.

Additional Special Guests will be announced shortly.

SPX 2018 is honored to have the following creators as Special Guests to this year’s show:

Rebecca Sugar

Rebecca Sugar is the creator of Cartoon Network’s Emmy-nominated series Steven Universe, an animated coming-of-age story told from the perspective of Steven, the “little brother” to a team of magical guardians of humanity—the Crystal Gems.

After graduating from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) with a BFA in Animation, Sugar joined Adventure Time in 2009. During her time on the iconic series as a storyboard artist and writer, Sugar garnered both Emmy nominations and an Annie Award win, as well a deep fan base following the many songs she wrote for the show.

Sugar was recently included in Variety’s Hollywood’s New Leaders 2016: The Creatives list, where she was recognized alongside other notable artists such as Damien Chazelle, Jerrod Carmichael and Donald Glover. A children’s book adaptation of the Emmy-nominated Steven Universe episode “The Answer” also written by Sugar was released on Sept. 6., 2016 where it became a New York Times bestseller.

Kat Fajardo

Kat Fajardo is an award-winning comic artist and illustrator born & raised in NYC. She is best known for her playful and colorful auto-biographical work about self acceptance and Latinx culture. She’s recently illustrated the cover for Celia C. Pérez’s The First Rule of Punk (Penguin Random House) and was featured in several anthologies. Hoping to boost Latinx narrative in comics, she’s also edited La Raza Anthology and created the grant-winning series Bandida! You can check out her artwork on this year’s SPX program cover or at her website.

Ben Passmore

Ben Passmore lives in Philly. His comics are about crime, monsters, anarchism, sexual dysfunction, police brutality, art theory, and his feels. Creator of DAYGLOAYHOLE, Goodbye, and Your Black Friend, and contributer at the Nib.

In DAYGLOAYHOLE 2 Ben is a cockroach that even is guts can’t love. Social and political commentary mixed with punk nonsense and gore drawn in vibrant florescent colors.

Jason Lutes

Jason Lutes was born in New Jersey in 1967 and grew up reading American superhero and Western comics. In the late 1970s he discovered Heavy Metal magazine and the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, both of which proved major influences on his creative development. Lutes graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in illustration, and in 1993 he began drawing a weekly comics page called Jar of Fools for Seattle’s The Stranger. Lutes lives in Vermont with his partner and two children, where he teaches comics at the Center for Cartoon Studies.

Devastatingly relevant and beautifully told, Berlin is one of the great epics of the comics medium, created over the past two decades by Jason Lutes. Berlin is an intricate look at the fall of the Weimar Republic through the eyes of its citizens, zeroing in on the street level to demonstrate the slow rise of fascism and extremism.

Benji Nate

Benji Nate is a Puerto Rico born cartoonist and high school drop out living in the States. Her works include Catboy, Lorna, Ghoulfriend, and other things.

Her most recent venture is co-editing North America’s greatest, best selling, and most popular comics periodical, Good Boy! Magazine which is debuting at this year’s SPX

At SPX 2018, Nowak and Top Shelf Productions compile the Ignatz-winning “Radishes” and “Diana’s Electric Tongue,” along with several other stories old and new, in her full-color debut collection, Girl Town.

Carol Tyler

Carol Tyler emerged as a distinctive voice from the underground comics scene of the 1980s, with work featured in Weirdo, Wimmen’s Comix, and Twisted Sisters. Her long form works include the autobiographical Late Bloomer (2005) and Soldier’s Heart (2012), and her books have been nominated for various awards, including multiple Ignatz Awards, an Eisner Award, and the LA Times Book Prize. Tyler received the 2016 Cartoonist Studio Prize from the Slate Book Review. Her most recent book, Fab4 Mania, chronicles her teenaged obsession with The Beatles in a facsimile of her 1965 journal.

Nate Powell

Nate Powell is a New York Times best-selling graphic novelist born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1978. He began self-publishing at age 14, and graduated from School of Visual Arts in 2000.

His work includes March, the graphic novel autobiography of congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis; You Don’t Say, Any Empire, Swallow Me Whole, The Silence of Our Friends, The Year of the Beasts, and Rick Riordan’s The Lost Hero. Powell is the first and only cartoonist ever to win the National Book Award.
