Hump Day Tease: PAYING FOR IT!

"I've loved Chester Brown's work since the early days of Yummy Fur. He started out as a remarkable cartoonist telling strange stories that slowly became, over time, increasingly personal.

PAYING FOR IT is as personal as you can get. It's a clear-eyed, not-even-slightly-erotic, compulsively readable, sometimes painfully honest account of his time, reasons and experiences paying for sex. I learned things about Chester from reading this, and I learned things about sex-workers, and about the world, and, oddly, I think I learned things about myself.

The argument about when or whether comics had grown up ended when people started making comics for grown-ups. This is one of them. PAYING FOR IT is the kind of book that will engage your mind and force you to think about things in ways you may never have done before. Chester would probably like that. And if you find yourself arguing with the page, or with the author's notes, I think Chester would probably like that too."

-Neil Gaiman

Here's the new jacket cover for PAYING FOR IT. We sent the book to notables for cover blurbs, and basically had almost a 100% response rate. Every hump day I'll post a new image from the book and a blurb until the book is in stores!

Oh yes, did I mention an introduction by R. Crumb? You'll have to wait until next week!
