Cartoonist Danielle Corsetto appears at New Dimension Comics on Saturday, July 5th from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm!
Danielle Corsetto is the creator of the webcomic Girls With Slingshots, which turns ten years old this year. To celebrate, she’s visiting GWS fans across the country, stopping at 20+ cities and covering over 9,000 miles over the course of 40 days.
Girls With Slingshots is the story of twenty-something BFFs Jamie and Hazel, and an expansive cast of their friends, including a talking cactus and a ghost cat (among other oddities). The dramedy revolves around topics of love, booze, sex, relationships, careers, living with your parents, and the worthlessness of an English degree. It updates five days a week in full color at www.girlswithslingshots.com.
Corsetto has also written two Adventure Time OGNs (with another on the way) published by BOOM! Studios, and created the strip “The New Adventures of Bat Boy” for the Weekly World News. She lives in the charming town of Shepherdstown, West Virginia with two cats and a rotating cast of vagrant friends in a big 18th century house filled with houseplants and loose tea.
