Deep Girl Release Party at Desert Island

We’re getting close! The Complete Deep Girl will officially release March 1st (Kickstarter donors will get their copies before that).

And we’re celebrating the release with a party at Desert Island! Read the official press release below, if you’re into that sort of thing.


The Complete Deep Girl by Ariel Bordeaux Debuts March 1st

February 16, 2013

For Immediate Release

Queens, New York

The mid-Nineties were a golden age for zines and minicomics. During those years thousands of handmade publications were printed and traded across the country. One of those pioneering titles was Deep Girl by Ariel Bordeaux. Bordeaux’s unflinchingly autobiographical stories were drawn in her distinctive style: raw, inky, and expressive. With biting humor Bordeaux addressed subjects like body image, self-esteem, and sex. And Deep Girl was deep–Ariel wrote about her life, but she also wrote about her thoughts.

Long out of print, all five issues of Deep Girl are being republished in limited edition collection by Paper Rocket Minicomics. The proprietor of Paper Rocket, Robyn Chapman, will produce a 128-page hand-bound book with a screen printed cover and jacket. The interior pages are black and white with a small color section. The book will also include a foreword by Adrian Tomine, an interview by Rob Clough, and an essay by Robyn Chapman. The cover price is $20.

The Complete Deep Girl will debut on March 1st at Desert Island in Brooklyn, New York. Both Bordeaux and Chapman will host a release party, where Bordeaux will sign books and perform a short reading.
