Magic City Books is proud to welcome cartoonist Benji Nate for an in-person program to celebrate her new graphic novel, Girl Juice on Wednesday June 14 at 7:00 pm in the Algonquin Room at Magic City Books.
Shortlisted for the 2022 Cartoonist Studio Prize, Girl Juice is about four very different twenty-something women navigating life, friendship, and relationships together under one roof. As Nate describes it, “Sex and the City but with a lot more dildos.”
The absolute magic of Girl Juice is the spectacularly wonderful and messy fabulousness of Tallullah, Bunny, Nana, and Sadie and how Benji perfectly draws their lives with the best laugh out loud funny storylines and classic lines like ‘I’m the Lord’s Hottest Little Slut.’
Girl Juice will be published on May 23 by Drawn & Quarterly and will be for sale at Magic City Books. You can order online at: https://magiccitybooks.square.site/product/girl-juice/1256.
About Girl Juice
Welcome to the Girl Juice House, home of only the hottest gang in town. Benji Nate’s stylish and rambunctious sense of humor lovingly takes digs at the young and tragically hip-reserved and introspective Nana, comically hypersexual Bunny, fledgling U-tuber Tula, and Designated Mom(TM) Sadie-as they navigate life, love, and the pursuit of a good time.
Girl Juice flaunts the gloriously messy and hilariously self-indulgent day-to-day hijinks of four young women doing the most. Watch them bicker over making rent and come up with creative solutions for getting there! Cringe as they attend an adult prom! Split your sides as they try their hand at camping! Cower as they confront their mommy issues, and cheer as they battle inner demons that feed off attention-seeking behavior!
Nate’s colorful attention to detail and gift balancing for graphic hyperbole with subtle comedy are a deep, much-needed breath of fresh air. With front-facing cameras ever at the ready, Girl Juice is a snappy reminder that the time of your life is always just a text away.
Benji Nate is a Puerto Rico-born cartoonist whose works include Lorna, Catboy, and Hell Phone. She is currently hiding out in the Ozarks with her husband, three cats, and dog.
