Sophie Goldstein ’13 (House of Women, The Oven) is coming to you this Free Comic Book Day as one of Fantagraphics’s most popular authors. Sophie is one of twelve creators in the second World’s Greatest Cartoonists that Fantagraphics has put together. Each creator has contributed a new piece. This issue will feature a cover by Sophie herself.
House of Women (Fantagraphics, 2017) is Sophie’s second solo graphic novel, her first with Fantagraphics. The story follows Sarai and her fellow emissaries onto an unknown planet. They spend most of their time working to “civilize” the natives. Their only other human contact is a man with genetic modifications. They will find out if the most danger comes from the natives, the man, or themselves.
Free Comic Book Day is the first Saturday of May each year. This May 5, head to your comic book store early to get a copy of World’s Greatest Cartoonists.
