Juicy Mother 2 at Bluestockings Book Store

Yesterday evening C and I went to the book party for Juicy Mother 2, edited by Jen Camper, at Bluestockings Bookstore on the Lower East Side. A strip from our dear friend Victor Hodge's Black Gay Boy Fantasy appears in the collection, and Victor drove up from Washington for the even. One of Victor's close friends, Dave Hooper, also from Washington, has work in the anthology, so we got to meet him, as well as Jen (whom I remembered from the old OutWrite conferences years ago in Boston); former DC Comics writer Ivan Vélez; DC Comics editor and Bitter Girl artist Joan Hilty; Hothead Paisan creator Diana DiMassa; and other artists in the anthology like Chitra Ganesha, Fly, Katie Fricas, and Carlos Quispe. Below are some photos from the event:
