Everybodycover Book Review | Every/Body: An Open Discussion Of Gender + Body

When I went up to the Toronto Comics and Art Fest, I came across Every/body in my search for comics, zines, or books that focus on gender, body issues, feminism, abuse, and similar topics.  This sweet comic/zine culture anthology is all about becoming comfortable in your own skin (even though the cover model doesn’t have any).

The 104-page book is filled with different authors exploring body issues.  There are about forty contributors.  Each one has a unique body image story to share.

Every/body is a great find – definitely the kind of book I look forward to sharing with friends. I hope there will be more comics that focus on these topics such as body image now and in the future.

This book was edited by Greer Lawson and is distributed by 2D Cloud Press (after they successfully funded it through Kickstarter!). You can pick up a copy at 2D Cloud’s web page, and anyone in Chicago can pick it up this weekend at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, June 15 and 16.
