A heroine with real boots.

Debuting at AWP Seattle last week was Issue 1, Volume 1 of Sad Girl. First run was 50 copies. We have 10 left and will be doing a second edition. What is Sad Girl?

Sadgirl Comics is a zine by Margaret Elysia Garcia about a Mexican American super heroine named Sad Girl who goes around saving other girls from bad life choices and low self-esteem. BASED on a true but sometimes metaphoric story and illustrated by Paloma Garcia-Couoh, age 9. Paloma thus far has had a relatively happy childhood so her innocent drawings coupled with her mothers dark writings is sometimes jarring and creepy but always interesting and … heroic.

SadGirl is a super heroine for the rest of us. Instead of stiletto heels, she has chunky heels she can run in. Instead of bustiers that no woman could run in , she has a decent sports bra on under her cool t-shirts.


The last remaining copies of SadGirl issue 1, first print run are available here: Sad Girl Comics. Stay tuned for issue 2.
