Comics Fetish: Volume 57

Brenna Clarke Gray

Staff Writer

Part muppet and part college faculty member, Brenna Clarke Gray holds a PhD in Canadian Literature while simultaneously holding two cats named Chaucer and Swift. It's a juggling act. Raised in small-town Ontario, Brenna has since been transported by school to the Atlantic provinces and by work to the Vancouver area, where she now lives with her stylish cyclist/webgeek husband and the aforementioned cats. When not posing by day as a forserious academic, she can be found painting her nails and watching Degrassi (through the critical lens of awesomeness). She posts about graphic narratives at Graphixia, and occasionally she remembers to update her own blog, Not That Kind of Doctor. Blog: Not That Kind of Doctor Twitter: @brennacgray

Welcome to Comics Fetish, your weekly round-up of cool comics-related stuff to buy and wear and gift and share. While this isn’t really a traditional theme week, I did just come back from Thought Bubble, the storied UK comics arts festival, and I thought for Comics Fetish this week I’d show you what I brought back with me.

I bought this poster from the amazing Eva Holder. You can get it in a t-shirt, a pencil skirt, or an iPad case, too.

From the webcomic Eat, Sleep, Sniff I bought a really cute carrier bag, but I think you guys would be more interested in this poster of cats dressed like geeks (How to Internet 101).

I fell in love with Claire Hubbard’s design sense. Check out this shark mug (there’s a matching notebook, too).

Show your love for indie creators and the art of the zine with this awesome sticker from Sammy Borras.

It’s really important to me that you know that Rachel Smith will draw you as a kitten. She didn’t have time to do mine at Thought Bubble, but I’m looking forward to a kitten portrait with bated breath.
