This anthology of comics and writing, edited by Hope Nicholson, features work from Margaret Atwood, Danielle Corsetto, Soha Kareem, ME, and also did you notice MARGARET ATWOOD. Like the same Margaret Atwood who wrote The Handmaid’s Tale, that featured heavily in THIS Jerkface Story? The same Margaret Atwood that tweeted at me (below)? YES, THAT ONE.
I was interviewed by the Geekhard podcast about the Secret Loves of Geek Girls: Check it out!
If you’re on twitter follow @HopeLNicholson and me, on my more general twitter handle @GillianGDotCom. (My @JerkfaceComics handle is for JFA updates and news, so OBVIOUSLY follow both).
Here’s what I noticed: Because I didn’t number the Fashion pages, the 200th comic just breezed by! But not without some acknowledgment… Literary icon (and one of the world’s finest writers) Margaret Atwood responded to my tweet after reading the Book Report story (about A Handmaid’s Tale) and then making a sweet joke about Aunt Lydia!

So, without official fanfare, the 200th page of Jerkface was honoured more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you to Our Lady Atwood, to everyone who has been reading this from the beginning, and to every new reader! To the Patrons who support Jerkface financially (you can too!), the people who share this comic with their networks, and to the people who just enjoy it alone: Thank you thank you!
