Written and illustrated by A.K. Summers, and based on her own experiences with pregnancy (in 2003), Pregnant Butch (Soft Skull) is a funny, insightful, and intensely personal look at the indignities of pregnancy and the discomforts of gender. Part adventure story, part riotous critique, this thoughtfully rendered, occasionally surreal, resolutely heterodox tale turns the traditional “what to expect when you’re expecting” narrative on its head. A.K. Summers, whose previous work included the zine Negativa, has been profiled in Vanity Fair, The Guardian and excerpted in The New York Times’ Motherlode Blog.
