A queer slice-of-life drama about dating and eating. The story, which takes place in Toronto and originally appeared as a popular webcomic, focuses on the lives of three roommates and their interpersonal struggles. While one roommate is slowly wrestling with severe body image issues, another is trying to figure out how to navigate her new polyamorous relationshipswithout hurting any of her partners. Meanwhile, the third roommate practically moves into the gym, where’s she’s quietly working through her own problems and those of her friends. In Meat & Bone, Verhoeven winds these threads into an unflinching, beautifully illustrated exploration of how women learn to define themselves in the modern world.

What People are Saying About This
“Kat’s artwork, characters and story are utterly fearless. Meat and Bone shines a light on the deep insecurities that drive us, reflecting them out like a prism, in dazzling full colour.” Rebecca Mock (Compass South, Knife’s Edge)
“Meat and Bone is a beautifully illustrated gut-punch of a book. It holds up a mirror to the worst of our self-loathing and dares us to smash it. Kat Verhoeven has created something terribly real with this lavish delight of colour: a rallying cry to self-love and an honest look at the hard journey to find it. This book made me feel genuinely hopeful that one day I might like myself, too.” Kate Leth (Adventure Time, Spell on Wheels)
