Julia Gfrörer

Julia Gfrörer ("grow fairer") is a writer and artist from New Hampshire. Her comics have appeared in Cicada Magazine, Kramers Ergot, and three volumes of Best American Comics. She self-publishes minicomics under the imprint Thuban Press, and her two other graphic novels, Laid Waste and Black Is the Color, are also available from Fantagraphics Books. She lives in New York with writer Sean T. Collins and their beautiful children.

"Julia Gfrörer is amongst the most promising artist/authors of her generation. Her work is spare and elegant, yet the hand of the artist is always evident in her line. Her characters inhabit cold or desolate environments, often on the brink of inanition or beyond, yet still yearning to love and be loved. Do not be misled by this artist's sylphlike appearance and those great carrot-colored ramparts at her ear. Gfrörer is a powerhouse. Learn to spell her name." — Phoebe Gloeckner
