Lulu Eightball Volume 1
The first book from Atomic Books' new press collects comics from alt-weekly star, Emily Flake.
Her strip currently runs in 6 alternative weeklies, one of which is in Iceland. Her cartoons deal with a variety of subjects, including - but not limited to - life and love and the foibles involved in both. Also, drinking, smoking, bumble bees, monkeys, arm flab and bad decision making when it comes to sex.
"Watch out, I spat half my food laughing all over this twisted brilliant deadpan book. Lulu's sneaky little revelations cause shivers of black-hearted joy and spasms of caustic hilarity. Madam Flake is diabolical." -Kate Christensen, IN THE DRINK
"If only Emily Flake was named queen of the universe, then we could all take pride in our spiteful thoughts and revel in our faux-pas, spend all our nights drinkin' and smokin' and all our days recovering from hang overs and sitting around, squeezing our flab. And we'd be late for work a lot. It would be heaven. I guess I'll have to take Emily's awesome comic book instead, and dream of what could be." -Laura R. Weinstein, INSIDE VINEYLAND
