Dolltopia Reading = FREE Cupcakes

I unfortunately don’t have time to write anything too witty because I gotta run out and go to work, so I’m just gonna post in bits of the press release.  That being said, this does sound like a really cool event!

Graphic novelist Abby Denson signs and reads from her new book, Dolltopia at a few parties featuring cupcakes and doll contest! Whoever brings the coolest made-over doll wins a signed copy of Dolltopia!

Lulu Award-winning cartoonist Abby Denson is a rock n’ roll ‘Jane of all trades’ and creator of the queer comic Tough Love: High School Confidential, and now she’s bringing the punked-up Barbies and stripped-down Kens of her new book Dolltopia on the road!

Having written scripts for Archie Comics (Sabrina the Teenage Witch), DC Comics (Powerpuff Girls), Simpsons Comics, and Marvel (Amazing Spider-Man Family), teaching comic book classes and playing in a whole host of punk bands, Abby has now gone back to her roots and returned to her childhood habit of making her dolls ‘different’ and setting them free from their predetermined fates.

Dolltopia is the story of Kitty, a ballerina doll forced into a not-so-happily-ever-after living arrangement with a male jock toy. Filled with discontent, Kitty takes it upon herself to escape her human-imposed domesticity and create a new life and a new image for herself away from the persecution of the human world. On this mission, she finds not only a host of like-minded individuals, but a veritable heaven for the alternative doll: Dolltopia.

If you wanna see  Abby read, get some FREE cupcakes and enter your doll into the contest, here’s Abby’s schedule this week.  Jesus, she’s apparently a very busy girl:
