About the Author

Elly Lonon, a member of the Liberal Elite herself, is still recovering from growing up in a red state. Born and raised in North Carolina, she moved to Manhattan for graduate school and to pursue a career in the music business. Weary from consistent marginalization by the patriarchy, she left both the industry and NYC, opting to work for a not-for-profit and moving to the suburbs of Jersey where living near a Superfund site promptly gave her cancer. Once in remission, she read far too many self-help books, learned to embrace life, and abandoned her previous career to write and procreate. Joan Reilly'swork was featured most recently inRESIST!, a comics newspaper edited by Francoise Mouly and Nadja Spiegelman, and in Draw the Line (, an online anthology of comics promoting political action. Her comics and illustration have been published in many anthologies and literary magazines over the last two decades. She is a co-editor ofThe Big Feminist BUT: Comics About the IFs, ANDs & BUTs of Feminism, and created illustrations for the Ask Marilyn column inParademagazine for over ten years.

"Anyone who's ever thought the title might apply to them will laugh, while also resolving not to be such a cliché in the future." --The New York Times

"Lonon's political satire, social commentary is on point." --Essex News Daily

"Hilarious and astute." --Rewire

"Lonon is undeniably clever with a penchant for searing cultural commentary and political satire."
--Triad City Beat

"Amongst the Liberal Elite is the perfect gift for your spouse who doesn't appreciate the toll of emotional labor, for your in-laws who don't understand feminism, or for your coworker who is always using the office copier to run off flyers for an impromptu weekend march. Most importantly though, it's for anyone that needs a little comic relief from themselves."

"To be able to take a popular column made up of clever repartee and turn it into a graphic novel is quite remarkable. I can't stress enough what an ambitious task that is." --Comics Grinder
