About the Author
Lisa Hanawalt is the producer and production designer of the Netflix original series BoJack Horseman. She has worked on illustrations, book covers, animations, comics, murals, and textile patterns, and exhibits her work in galleries. Her quarterly food column for Lucky Peach won her a James Beard Award for humor. She cohosts the podcast Baby Geniuses with the comedian Emily Heller. Hanawalt's first collection with Drawn & Quarterly was the critically acclaimed My Dirty Dumb Eyes. Her second book with D+Q, Hot Dog Taste Test, won her the Ignatz Award and appeared on best-of-the-year lists from The Washington Post, The Guardian, NPR, and elsewhere.

"Lisa's work is a reminder of the limitless boundaries of one's imagination. She somehow creates fantastical worlds within our own, commenting on some of our most timely issues while exploring our most minute absurdities. I could spend all day inside this heartfelt, beautiful, twisted take on a classic Western."--Abbi Jacobson, co-creator of Broad City

"Coyote Doggirl is uppity, cocky, and occasionally profane, but she is also smart, clever, and outrageously funny. Lisa Hanawalt's comicbook tale of a half-coyote, half-dog feminist and her trusty steed, Red, makes you think as well as laugh. You go, Coyote Doggirl!"--Sandra Dallas, New York Times best-selling author

"A story of flight and vengeance, sunsets and sagebrush, love and leather underwear. Hanawalt's blues could be set in the sky and belong there; her pinks are almost alive. These are the cave paintings I want them to find in 10,000 years."--Patricia Lockwood, author of Priestdaddy

"Hanawalt is known for her ability to deliver genuinely hilarious visual gags and Coyote Doggirl is no exception. What's especially interesting to me, however, is how Coyote's tone refuses to stay put, venturing from slapstick to poignant, and finally into downright bleak territory, appropriate for a Western. Her deftness with color is also worth study. I'm taken by how her characters contrast with the iconic and carefully studied features of the western landscape, from mountain plateaus to bright and delicate wildflowers."--Kelly Sue DeConnick, author of Bitch Planet, Captain Marvel

"The hilarious, bloody journey unfolds with a childlike sense of adventure, bigger and brighter than life, shot through with a snarky adult sensibility."-Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"Hanawalt turns the Western genre into a shared joke, giving its too-serious elements an absurdist spin."--NPR

"The story's plucky heroine is a hot pink coyote-dog-girl hybrid with a great sense of fashion... Dirty wisecracks are tempered by rhapsodic, watercolor landscapes."--Huffington Post

"An introvert's paean to the pleasures of being alone [and] a love-letter deconstruction of the modern Cormac McCarthy-inspired Westerns that still place a premium on machismo and male violence."--The New Yorker

"Lisa Hanawalt's Coyote Doggirl is the sort of comic that quickly turns skeptics of the genre into fanatics... It's hilarious and cathartic and strange as hell."--GQ
