Book Description

July 19 2011
Queen of the Black Black collects Megan Kelso's self-published early Girlhero stips as well as a few from other sources. Fans will remember her other works: the "Watergate Sue" serial in the New York Times' Sunday Magazine and Artichoke Tales. In this new collection, Kelso scrutinizes bicycle messengers, venereal diseases, infidelity, unwanted pregnancies, temporary work assignments, family reunions, and classroom daydreams in subtle and unexpected manners, setting herself technical challenges such as depicting music in comics (the virtuoso "The Daddy Mask," with its sensuous gray swirls of sound on the page), integrating lettering into artwork in creative ways, and generally working her way toward what would become her mature style.

4.0 out of 5 stars i love megan kelso April 14 1999
Format:Paperback
This book has some great stories and marvelous art. The stories vary in subject and tone, but the book radiates a beauty beyond words. Megan's art is simple and "cartoony" and, at times, awe-inspiring. If you only read one comic this month read 'Hicksville'. But if you read two make sure the other one is 'Queen of the Black Black'.
