Cartoonist Danielle Corsetto will be in St. Louis for one night and has chosen Shameless Grounds as the venue to host her book signing.
There will be a Q&A on Tuesday, July 8th from 7:00 until 8:00 and then she will be selling and signing books from 8:00 until 11:00. You will want to purchase something from Shameless in order to claim a special gift from Danielle.
For those of you that haven’t been to Shameless Grounds yet: Parking is on the street. PLEASE TRY TO PARK ON LEMP. (Withnell is a residential street and we try to leave those spots for the residents.) If you want to sit inside, be sure to get here early to grab a table. If you do end up sitting outside, you’ll still be able to hear Danielle’s answers through our PA.
Girls With Slingshots debuted on October 1st 2004, both online and at SPX in Bethesda, MD. Since its humble beginnings as a twice-weekly black-and-white webcomic, it’s become a self-sustaining color webcomic that updates five times a week, Monday through Friday.
The strip’s two main characters, Hazel and Jamie, sprung to life in a strip called Hazelnuts, the unintentional prequel to GWS. The title was derived from requests Danielle used to get at comic conventions to draw girls with guns (she sucked at drawing guns, so she drew them with slingshots).
Danielle Corsetto is the artist and creator of Girls With Slingshots. She created her first comic strip when she was 8, starting with a blatant rip-off of Garfield called Fat Cat. She started writing Hazelnuts in high school, and ran a comic about super-senior college kids called Ramblers in the student paper at Shepherd College (as well as Pop Image and World Famous Comics). She also briefly ran a comic called Larry and Caroline in the Hagerstown Herald-Mail newspaper.
In October of 2004, she began Girls With Slingshots, and by 2007, with the first print collection of GWS and other merchandise & art sales, she was doing the strip full-time. It’s now updated 5 times a week at some god-awful hour.
In addition to GWS, Danielle wrote and drew The New Adventures of Bat Boy for the Weekly World News, taking the reins from Peter Bagge. She’s also written two Adventure Time graphic novels for BOOM! and has several other projects in the works.
Danielle hails from Ijamsville, MD and now lives in Shepherdstown, West Virginia in a 230-year-old house with her two cats, Smudge and Ellie (aka Fluffy and Sprinkles). She loves drinking tea, going for hikes, traveling, cooking, gardening and eating local foods, because she is a filthy hippie. Danielle has taught illustration at her alma mater Shepherd University, and hopes to teach more in the future. She is a lifetime Girl Scout.
