Sally here with comics and news from Gabrielle Bell, GG, Liana Finck, Summer Pierre, Paula Puiupo, and more!
I missed a week of internet due to traveling in New Mexico without a computer, but the rest of the world didn’t skip a beat so there are a ton of comics and news bites to share with you good folks as you head into your weekend. Let’s dig in!
Gabrielle Bell has a comic up on The New Yorker titled That’s What I Get for Trying to Find Love on Tinder. See the whole thing HERE.
Speaking of Liana Finck, she also has a recent comic on The New Yorker – Meet the Commenters! – which details the cool stuff people say to her when she posts her autobio comics online… HERE.
It’s been a minute since I checked out the 4Panel Project – above is a recent one by GG. In the last few weeks alone there have also been comics by Julia Wertz, Hannah K. Lee, Keiler Roberts, and Daryl Seitchik.
Summer Pierre has a busy blog where she posts a lot of her comics – above is the latest in her series Paper Pencil Life. Check out more comics HERE.
She has also been working on the series of haiku comics – her most recent one (#38 out of 50 she has planned) is not yet on the blog, but you can catch it on Summer’s Instagram – HERE.
Paula Puiupo has a new comic out called Gume – see a spread from it above, and learn more about it HERE. Paula recently updated and redid her whole website, so be sure to check it out and see a lot more of her work. Paula Puiupo is originally from Lisbon, and now lives and works in São Paulo.
