Ellen Forney

"Ellen is quite aware that all of us are weird. Profoundly weird. Because Ellen herself is a beautiful freak, she makes it OK for all of us to revel in our own freakiness." — Sherman Alexie

"In the hands of Forney, the peculiarities of everyday people and everyday life receive tender and compassionate treatment. Employing simple, open-line work, Forney's comics are whimsical and wise as well as sexy, naughty and sometimes shocking. But always, they're formed with a generosity of spirit that shimmers on the surface of each panel." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
