Unlovable, Vol. 3 (Fantagraphics Books)

OH NO, you did not just get invited to the Unlovable Volume 3 Launch Party, we were just SHOWING you that there is one. Kim said that she and Erick were gonna like, crash it, but we just got these swede pants from the thrift store and new earrings from the Collin Creek Mall---OH FINE, EVERYONE IS INVITED!

Skylight Books is proud to host the Unlovable Volume 3 Launch Party with cartoonist Esther Pearl Watson on Sunday, May 4th. Summer vacation is here and Tammy Pierce is back with more sometimes ordinary, often humiliating, occasionally poignant, and usually hilarious exploits from the pages of Bust magazine! Her hopes, dreams, agonies, and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson's lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all the eighties essentials - too much mascara, leg warmers with heels, and huge hair, etc. - as well as timeless teen concerns like acne, dandruff, and the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases). Tammy's life isn't pretty, but it is endlessly endearing and hilarious especially under the pen of Esther Pearl Watson.

See you here at Skylight books at 5 pm (May 4th) on Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! TP provided.

Praise for Unlovable, Vol. 3

"Esther's consistently original, hilarious and heart-felt work evokes the travails of puberty with painful accuracy. After perusing Unlovable Vol. 3 we immediately broke out in zits and had clumsy beginner sex." – Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman

"Tammy's enchanting smile and dazzling eyes are a gift of grace from Esther Watson." – Pendleton Ward, creator of Adventure Time

"Unlovable is the great teen comic tragedy of our time!" – Matt Groening

Esther Pearl Watson lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband and fellow artist, Mark Todd. Together they authored the influential D.I.Y. tome, Whatcha Mean, What's A Zine?
