Meat Cake

Dame Darcy is one of the sui generis artistic talents of the past two decades — musician, actress, fortune teller, dollmaker, Gen X/feminist icon, and last but not least, cartoonist to the core — and has been bewitching readers for more than 20 years with her neo-Victorian horror/humor/romance comic Meat Cake. Alternating between one-off (often cruelly tragic) fairy tales and ongoing romps starring her eclectic cast of characters, Meat Cake is like a peek into the most creative, deranged dollhouse you ever saw. 

"Darcy’s comics are aesthetic manifestos... Darcy is a star. Mark my words: Meat Cake will prevail, as luxury takes over America. And the world beyond." —– The New York Times

"...Buy any Meatcake comic you can get your hands on. Dame Darcy's delightful imagination incorporates her love of Victorian culture, magic, music, witches and fairies. While reading her work, eschew reality and embrace a world that can include a woman who only speaks via Pez that shoot out of her neck. It's a glorious place to live. –— USA Today
