Overview

Juicy Mother is what underground comics used to be. Lesbians and homosexuals populate these electric pages, and the scenes can be disturbing. Enlightening, too.”—The Boston Globe

The only current publication that showcases comix by queer artists, the ground-breaking graphic novel Juicy Mother 2 contains richly drawn tales that examine LGBT life from new perspectives: killer dykes chasing romance, a superhero tranny, how Hothead met Chicken, homeboys in love, lesbian internet hook-ups, West Hollywood parties, kids with queer parents, and many other unexpectedly funny depictions of how like-minded individuals have found each other for love, lust, and heartbreak. Thoroughly entertaining adult comix for gender pirates and sexual outlaws, Juicy Mother 2 contains depictions of sweet sex, rough sex, and confusing sex.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This anthology of gay and lesbian cartoonists returns with an added thematic component, taking on various "how we met" stories. Like the first installment, this one is uneven, but includes several strong entries. Some of the best are from accomplished cartoonists. Leanne Franson's "Under New Management" combines breezy line work with a vaguely discomfiting romantic triangle to good effect, and Joan Hilty's "Zion" uses rough, kinetic inks to depict the sexual awakening of a young Mormon lesbian without needless self-indulgence. Newer artists also make strong contributions. David Hooper displays a strong grasp of some difficult formal techniques in his club-hopping story "What Choice Do I Have." Jamaica Dyer overlays an honest voice, delicate pencils and gray wash to tell an inspiring story of reconnecting with a childhood sweetheart in "Devan + Alix." And Lawrence Schimel and Sara Rojo Perez use children's book illustration techniques to offer a knowing, funny look at the adopted children of gay parents. Even the lesser entries offer something for the reader, although given her strong entry in the first volume (not to mention her award-winning graphic novel Fun Home), Alison Bechdel's absence from everything but a volume-ending cartoon jam is conspicuous.
