Zinez!

There's a review of Homobody on Lambda Literary Review-- how is "Homobody" and "Literary" in the same sentence?! http://www.lambdaliterary.org/comics/06/03/homobody-1-5-by-rio-safari/

My library let me talk about dinosaurs and giggle for 16 minutes! The podcast is here.

Are you interested in consigning/selling Homobodies via my distro? I'm looking for some new zines right now, and your zine looks great. I'd love to get it into more people's bathroom reading supplies.
