Juicy Mother is a cartoon anthology with work by and about queers, women and people of color. The collection includes comix about an older butch dyke and her Lolita, an African-American gay man coming of age, an Arab Muslim dyke searching for her identity, two big hairy men getting married, a cynical Latina teen encountering aliens and a wild cartoon jam.

In a genre especially known for being dominated by straight white men, Juicy mother is an alternative to alternative comix. The collection places emphasis on the voices least represented in the comic world. As such, the stories within are exceptionally exuberant and carefree; they are a celebration.

Juicy Mother showcases comics by such well-known cartoonists as Alison Bechdel (Dykes to Watch Out For), Howard Cruse (Wendel, Stuck Rubber Baby), Diane DiMassa (Hothead Paison), Ariel Shcrag (Definition, Potential) Ivan Velez, Jr. (Tales of the Closet, Blood Syndicate), Robert Kirby (Curbside) and Joan Hilty (Bitter Girl). Included also are some amazing new discoveries and some exciting writer/artist teamups.

Highlights include comics about an older butch dyke and her Lolita, an African American gay man coming of age, an Arab Muslim dyke searching for her identity, two big hairy men getting married, and a cynical Latina teen’s encounter with aliens. The stories in Juicy Mother are not just exceptionally exuberant and carefree, they are a celebration of artistry and diversity.
