Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five #552

Hi folkses! Bonnie will resume shortly BUT HERE'S SOME NEW NEWS RIGHT NOW: my new webcomic ASSASSIN ROOMMATE will be debuting on Webtoons Tuesday, June 6th and running weekly for the next 6 months, WAHOOOO! Come join me, won't you? 

There’s something both earthy and retro about Monica Gallagher’s style — which is perfectly in keeping with the nature of her brazenly femme heroine, Bonnie N. Collide.

Updated every Tuesday & Thursday!

I too would be pissed if someone hinted at a Game Night and didn't deliver!

BIG SHOUT OUT to everyone from C2E2 this weekend! I had such a blast and will definitely return next year! Chicago + family + comics pals + fun commissions + lovely new faces = one magical convention. Now it's time for me to hide until TCAF and VanCAF - the Canadian DOUBLE THREAT I'll be attending in May!

WHAT HAPPENS when three out of four of the league captains fight? Nothing good!

Also, I think it's fiiiiinally time to start putting in cameos from my lovely Kickstarter backers! The lovely ladies on the ref team with Slam are none other than my dear friends Lauren & Suzanne! (also not the first time I've put Lauren in one of my comics before - check out the eaaarliest pages of Gods & Undergrads to get a glimpse of her there, too!)

THE DREADED TALE IS REVEALED. WOO new double-strip! This is the first time I've attempted it, it's pretty fun! And in other comics news, I posted a little autobio strip on going through tough times yesterday you can check out here!

Time for the third team! Say hello to The SNEERING SIRENS!

The Sneering Sirens are all about being clever and tricksy. They don't appreciate flash and glamour and superficial tactics to outwit their opponents. They're on the edge, riding the line, and they KNOW you'll never see them coming! Capt. Amy Hazeballs is the beloved wife of the Hammerin' Harpies's Hattie Hellfire, and Tyrion Sinister is head of the coaches team. The rest are all readers!

Congrats to all the teammates! (i.e. those lovely skaters who wrote in to tell me their derby stories)

  • Gorshach
  • Scald Eagle
  • I.M. Pain
  • Missyle Elliott
  • Doris Day of Reckoning

(Confession: I.M. Pain and Doris are both from my swell home league of the Charm City Roller Girls, and it was purely by accident they wound up on the same team, haha!) Go Sirens! One more team for tomorrow!

Oh, and just a reminder - these represent your little Bonnie comic cartoon self versions - don't worry (and hopefully don't be offended!) if they don't exxxaaaactly look like the REAL you. ;)

(For those of you who might be confused, I put a call out for any derby skaters out there to be a part of the comic - all it took was submitting their name/attitude/photo. I took all the submissions and found them a spot on one of Bonnie's league's home teams. These are the results! :) )
