Love and Art in New York City: Exclusive Comics Excerpt From Gabrielle Bell’s Cecil and Jordan

If a world-famous painter asked you to give drawing lessons to his 12-year-old son, what would you do? Brooklyn cartoonist Gabrielle Bell tells stories of lost women and confused girls, casting about for connection in a world that often ignores them. Sometimes her stories follow the logic of dreams; sometimes they are brutally realistic. First published in MOME, Kramers Ergot, and elsewhere, Gabrielle Bell's short stories have been collected for the first time in Cecil and Jordan in New York, out this month from Drawn & Quarterly.
