Liz Prince has been a cult and beloved figure in the world of comics for awhile, and in her autobiographical book Tomboy: A Graphic Memoir, she discusses the subject of growing up, in her inimitable, honest and simple style. Prince was never a girly-girl, and watching her navigate between the two poles of who she was and the (pink) box people wanted her to fit into makes for a fascinating look at what “identity” means in the process of growing up. The book’s out on September 2nd, but we have an exclusive look at some pages now.
We Recommend: The Long Ships by Frans Bengtsson (ebook available)
"This is one of the greatest adventure novels ever written. Viking raiders plunder Europe, searching for treasure. Swords! Sails! Battles! Adventure!"
Jack Kirby’s breakdowns for a page of the Hulk story in TALES TO ASTONISH #74.
The Watcher face in that third panel was redrawn by somebody else, likely Marie Severin.
Some of Kirby’s border notes remain:
HULK SAYS —YOU’RE AFTER WATCHER’S GADGETS! WELL YOU’LL HAVE TO FIGHT TO GET ‘EM!
LIZARD MAN — I’M THE MOST POWERFUL IN MY GALAXY!
HE SAYS I CAN NOT STOP THEM

Did you watch the video above?
Then stop reading right now! There is no new information for you in the paragraphs below.
But you can head on over to our Patreon page to learn all about the different ways you can support Texts from Superheroes and the rewards that await you in exchange.
For those of you who didn’t watch, you missed a great video announcing that Texts from Superheroes is now on Patreon.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a funding platform kind of like Kickstarter, but instead of raising a bunch of money at once for one big project, it’s meant for recurring small donations to keep our web comic running on a monthly basis.
As creators, writers and comedians we’re working on a lot of different projects at once and Texts from Superheroes doesn’t always get the attention from us it deserves. With recurring monthly donations we can focus more time and energy on creating the comics you love and ensure consistent, quality posts from Texts from Superheroes. But there are also rewards!
We’re offering our patrons exclusive content, behind the scenes access, the chance to see comics from the future and a bunch of other great stuff, all listed on our Patreon page.
But don’t panic, Texts from Superheroes will always be free. This is just an avenue to help directly support our comic, if that’s what you’re into.
Thanks for reading, thanks for following and thanks for being the awesome fans that you are. (And special thanks to Doug Groves, the creator of Bionic Antboy, for all his help with our campaign video).
Here’s our Patreon page if you’d like to donate.
And here’s a picture of Ronan texting, because we think it’s hilarious:
Ah. Thanks Dan!
So yeah, Texts from Superheroes is now on Patreon, and this video is now on the internet, which truth be told, is literally the only video footage available proving I exist.
If nothing else for that picture of Ronan…
