Stopover in Italy

Having fine-tuned their Spanish during the last couple of years, thanks to the two-part La Cupula translations of Wendel All Together, my Wendel characters have been practicing their Italian of late.

Stuck Rubber Baby made it to Italy ten years ago, but the ten-page sampling of Wendel episodes in the new Happy Boys & Girls anthology of gay comics creators (don’t let that English title fool you; the contents really are in Italian) represents the Strawhead’s first opportunity to amuse readers in Italy.

Other comics by yours truly that are included in the book are "Dirty Old Lovers," my five-pager from Gay Comix #3, and "My Hypnotist" which was posted online last February (where it’s still viewable in English) at Popimage. "My Hypnotist" served as the closing Episode of Tim Fish‘s acclaimed Young Bottoms In Love gay webcomics series, hosted for years on that site, and will be included (still in English) in an upcoming YBIL book collection. But my story’s travels aren’t over: a Spanish translation will soon (if its title holds sway) be mesmerizing readers in Spain.

Or entrancing them.

(Or, uh, putting them to sleep.)

Tim Fish has twenty pages of his own in Happy Boys and Girls, as do Leanne Franson of Canada, Tom Boudon of Belgium, and my fellow American compatriots Paige Braddock and Roberta Gregory, and Belgian Tom Boudon. The book’s publisher is Coniglio Editore.
