Bio: Roberta Gregory has been creating her own unique comics for over twenty years. She appeared in many issues of Gay Comix/ Gay Comics and self-published Sheila and the Unicorn and Winging It, both of which studied gender issues. She also self-published two of the three issues of Artistic Licentiousness, which she describes as "a sort of bisexual love story."
Roberta is best known in the comic world for her long-running Naughty Bits series, starring the unforgettable Bitchy Bitch, still coming out quarterly from Fantagraphics Books. The latest of five Naughty Bits trade paperbacks, Bitchy Butch: The World's Angriest Dyke, is available, along with most of her other books from Roberta herself. Check out her website for all the details. The new collection, Life's a Bitch, is a wonderful introduction to Roberta's heterosexual heroine.
Also available are: Bitchy Strips a collection of the Bitchy Bitch weekly newspaper strips. The Bitchy Bitch animated cartoons for Oxygen Network have expanded into a third season of half-hour episodes, which were seen all over cable TV (alas, no longer.)
Roberta's newest project is the adorable Real Cat Toons collection, and she has much more in the works, including a new Bitchy Bitch graphic novel and the Mother Mountain series and graphic novel! Visit her website to keep up with what she's doing!

I Love Spiders is a Queer Zine reminiscent of photocopied, cut-and-pasted Zines from the zine explosion "back in the day" (well, that's a relative term—a couple of decades ago…?)—with some very modern twists: for instance, if one looks closely, there is a website URL, email addy, and so on…. Welcome to the 21st century!
According to lolagouine, this is an English-language version of "It's Raining Dykes" and is described as an activist queer zine. This means we get to experience a…
[Color Commentary, Posted 6/16/11]
I wrote and drew comics all through childhood and high school, but did not really think about getting them published until I was in college, at California State University Long Beach. I had a comic strip called Feminist Funnies to add a bit of comedy relief to the Women's Resource Center Newsletter, and the first strip, from April 1974 starred a proto-Frieda Phelps, the idealistic protagonist of what would become Dynamite Damsels 2 years later. I was never very happy with my artwork, but about…
