About the Author

Julia Gfrörer lives on Long Island, where she maintains an extensive collection of black cardigans. Her work has appeared in Kramer's Ergot and Best American Comics. She pronounces her name "gruh fare" but you can say it however you like.


Beautiful. Gfrorer has a light touch in finding the yearning and humor amongst life's hard luck and even harder truths. A genuinely romantic and sensitive book. --Sammy Harkham"
Julia Gfrorer is amongst the most promising artist/authors of her generation. Her work is spare and elegant, yet the hand of the artist is always evident in her line. Her characters inhabit cold or desolate environments, often on the brink of inanition or beyond, yet still yearning to love and be loved. Do not be misled by this artist's sylphlike appearance and those great carrot-colored ramparts at her ear. Gfrorer is a powerhouse. Learn to spell her name. --Phoebe Gloeckner"
[Gfrorer's] comic is aptly named Black Is the Color and it is beautiful. Beautiful in a way an H bomb is beautiful -- devastating -- but also glorious and full of light.... Black Is the Color illustrates the horror and banality of our existence -- and the beauty of our death... --Amie Maxwell"
