Comic-A-Day for 2016 campaign!

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

Hi friends!  This is a long time coming, but I’m going with the flow and starting a Patreon campaign so that fans can support me making comics!  You may be thinking “But Liz, you haven’t been actively creating comics for us online lately” and that is sadly true!  My Patreon page explains my absence from the world of webcomics, and introduces a brand new monthly comic mail order subscription service!

Here’s the deal: I’m drawing a journal comic for every day of 2016.  This is an exercise to get me back in the habit of drawing daily, as well as giving me a way to self-publish books again: both of which I love, but am sorely out of practice with.  I have set up my Patreon with a sliding pay scale:

for $7-$10 per month you will get a collection of each month’s strips delivered to your door in mini comic format

for $3-$5 per month you will get a digital subscription to each month’s comics, posted weekly in digest format (physical subscription members will also have access to the digital posts)

and if you want to pledge, but don’t have the money or interest for the higher tiers, there is a $1 tip jar option, which is still greatly appreciated!

Here is a mock up version of what the finished books will look like (please keep in mind that these were made using the comics from my April 2015 daily strips, and the books produced for this project will have full cover art and title pages).

So that’s the new project I’m working on at the moment!  I’ve always want to do some kind of comic subscription service, but never had a really easy way to take payment/keep track of subscribers: Patreon seems like the perfect platform for to experiment with something that’s been a long time goal of mine!  I hope you’ll contribute, and I look forward to sending you a book in the mail every month!

Thanks for reading!

excerpt from Invincible Summer/Clutch split

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Hello! Long time, no talk! I apologize for the silence from me on this website, and on the internet in general. One of my goals in 2016 is to be more active online, especially as far as posting comics to lizprincepower.com is concerned.

So what better way to redeem myself in the eyes of my loyal fans than to put a new collection of diary comics up for sale in my revamped WEBSTORE? I drew a diary strip for every day in April, and a chunk of my month was spent with Portland comics queen Nicole J. Georges, helping her dog get eye surgery! We collaborated on a comic about the trip we took from NYC to Portland to Seaview WA to Seattle, and it just seemed to make sense that we combine our efforts by adding me to the long-standing journal comic split Invincible Summer/Clutch!

In this handsome 56pp book you’ll get brand new comics from me, new comics from Nicole, new comics from me AND Nicole, and new comics from Clutch, offset printed in purple ink, sold for the low price of $6!

And if that doesn’t tempt you, here are the first four comics of my April 2015, to whet your appetite.

CLARENCE 1 of 4

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Oh wow, you guys!  Did you know that I’m writing a 4 issue mini-series for kaboom! based on the super cute, fairly progressive, Cartoon Network show Clarence?!  It’s a new experience for me to write a story that I don’t also draw, but the artist on the series is a guy named Evan Palmer who is doing this comic much more justice than my art would, and since the first issue is out TODAY, you should rush to your local comic shop to get a copy!

If you need more convincing, you can see a preview of the first 5 pages HERE!

 

In summation: Clarence #1, you know you want it.

CAKE 2015

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Look out, Chicago!  I’m going to be in your fine city this weekend for the 4th annual Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, better known as CAKE!  You can find me at the Center on Halsted Saturday & Sunday at table 21A, with copies of Tomboy, Alone Forever, and some of newer Cartoon Network comics.  If you live in the area, I hope you’ll come out!

 

Denver Comic Con

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Ahoy!

 

Late notice, as per usual, but I’ll be at Denver Comic Con Saturday, Sunday and Monday, as a guest at the BOOM! Studios booth.  I’m not bringing any copies of my own books with me, because this event is a kick-off for the Clarence mini-series that I’ve been writing.  But, unfortunately, due to time constraints, the first issue, drawn by the talented Evan Palmer, will not debut at the convention as planned, but we’ll still be there talk about the series.  You can find me and Evan at the BOOM! booth, number 629, for the duration of the show, and you can also pick up a Denver Comic Con exclusive cover that I drew for Lumberjanes #13!  And hey, if that wasn’t enough, here are some times that you come and hear me talk about stuff like I’ve got a clue:

Description: Join Liz Prince as she discusses her award winning and the popular graphic memoir Tomboy.

TCAF this weekend – I AM NOW NOT GOING TO BE THERE

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

 

 

 

 

 

I’m really sorry to cancel last minute like this, but it turns out that I actually DO NOT have a flight to Toronto!  This is entirely my fault, because I failed to effectively sign into the website where I bought plane tickets, and through a strange Rube Goldberg-ian series of events, my payment never went through, and I either didn’t get an email to that effect, or the website never sent me one. But the end result is that when I went to check into my flight, they were like “You don’t have a flight, but you can have a flight for $1000” and I was like “Dudes, I draw comics for a living, I don’t have that kind of money to spend on a flight” so here I am, at home, having to write to you kind folks that I will NOT be at TCAF and I although I am losing money by not being there, it is less money than I would lose by trying to get there now.

If you bought me a bag of Pickle Doritos, I’m really sorry that I won’t be at the show to receive them (actually, that is probably the saddest part of this whole thing: DAMN I REALLY WANTED THOSE PICKLE CHIPS!!).  If you want to get in touch with me maybe we can work out a mail trade, but I totally understand if you want to eat them yourself.

So there it is, my tale of woe.  Have a great show, and in lieu of seeing me, please go buy books from Kevin Budnik at table 235: he is a peach.

Hi everybody!

Sorry for the semi-late notice, but I’ll be tabling at the Rhode Island Publishing Expo this Saturday & Sunday (March 28th & 29th).

Clarence

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Hello friends,

Yesterday it was officially announced online that I am writing a 4 issue mini-series for Kaboom!, based on the Cartoon Network show Clarence.  This is a very new and exciting opportunity for me, given that I have written a comic script for someone else to draw only once before (for an upcoming issue of Kaboom’s Steven Universe comic), and I am equally excited that the talented Evan Palmer will be my partner, doing the artwork for this series.  I am a fan of the show Clarence, and I hope to bring the same vibrant energy and enthusiasm that the characters have on TV to the printed page.

Look for it on the stands in June, and if you order a subscription, you’ll get a special, limited edition cover to the first issue, drawn by ME!  (more details on that when ordering links are up)
