Bordeaux Goes Deep

Bordeaux fans, rejoice! All five issues of CCS class of ’12 alumna Ariel Bordeaux’s unflinchingly autobiographical minicomic, “Deep Girl” will be republished this March in a limited edition collection by Paper Rocket Minicomics. Long out of print, Bordeaux’s “Deep Girl” addresses sex, self-esteem, and body issues with the kind of raw, fiercely funny introspection the mid-nineties’ minicomics pioneers were known and loved for. Paper Rocket Minicomics will release the collected issues in a 128-page hand-bound volume with a screen-printed cover and jacket. A book signing and release party, co-hosted by Ariel Bordeaux and Paper Rocket proprietor Robyn Chapman, will take place on March 1st at Desert Island in Brooklyn.
