Our first issue of 2015 features a brand new comic by the talented cartoonist and illustrator, Jillian Tamaki.
Frontier #7 features the story "SexCoven" which revolves around IRL and online relationships, the seductive and secret world of early internet file-sharing, and life inside a commune (cult?).
The book debuted at MoCCA FEST, where Publishers Weekly called it the "buzz book of the show."
Jillian Tamaki is an award winning cartoonist and illustrator. She is the co-author with her cousin Mariko Tamaki of the award-winning graphic novels "This One Summer" and "Skim", and the author of the forthcoming "SuperMutant Magic Academy" from Drawn & Quarterly. Jillian has written and storyboarded two episodes of the show "Adventure Time" and created many lovely zines and minicomics.
"It's really good. Tamaki's story of an early-Internet based phenomenon turned eventual cult is fun in its particulars and touching in its specific. You can read it as science-fiction style story and you can also read it as a character piece." - Tom Spurgeron, The Comics Reporter
"Another very, very good work from Tamaki in a period in which she's ensured the mention of her name as a signifier of excellence in comics." - Zainab Akhtar, Comics & Cola
"Tamaki’s remarkable page layouts again steal the show. Tamaki has weaved an uneasy tale of sex, relationships, love gained, and lost. Recommended." - Alex Hoffman, Sequential State
