Synopses & Reviews
An intelligent and self-deprecating romp through the "out there" humor of one of today's funniest women
A collection of comic narratives that are hilariously incisive and illustrated in her splashy, apropos style, Lap Dancing for Mommy runs riot with mainstream perceptions of "underground" lifestyles -- and with just about anything else that crosses this artist's keen eye. Whether she's revealing "Phallusies: The Fake Penis Exhibition", relating the psycho antics of "Therapy Girl" or the troubles of "Camaro Joe", or taking friendly shots at sexuality and the '70s Sisterhood, Lopez's talent and intellect take her work far beyond the usual comic fare.
"Erika Lopez's cartoons are so corrosive they should come with a hazardous material warning. Buy this book now and surrender to her exquisitely vile and depraved genius". -- Alison Bechdel, creator of Dykes to Watch Out For
Erika Lopez's award-winning work has reams of racy, raunchy and riotously funny appeal for audiences spanning regular comic fans to Generation X-ers to the queer literary world. This collection of comic, hilariously incisive narratives--illustrated in Lopez's splashy, apropos style--runs riot with mainstream perceptions of "underground" lifestyles--and with just about anything else that crosses this artist's keen eye.
