I’m sorry to hear she’s faced all that, but I love her work, and I’m glad she’s anticipating a productive 2012, with lots more comics.

    I’ve been a fan of Kris’s work from Manya comics (with Jen Benka) to greeting-card art since meeting the Vagabond Press ganglet at a con in ’97 or so. While I’m sorry to have fallen out of keeping up with her work — she’s in great company there, it’s sad to say — the silver lining to that is how much new material there is for me to discover. I urge anyone reading this to click on over to Kris’s sites and sample the generous helping of complete stories posted online (then buy something).
