About the Author
Archie Bongiovanni is a comics artist and illustrator who focuses on making work that's gay and good. They're the cocreator of the award-winning A Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns and the creator of Grease Bats, a serialized comic about two queer BFFs navigating dating and late-stage capitalism. Bongiovanni's the author of History Comics: Stonewall, and their work has appeared in The New Yorker, the Nib, Vice, and Autostraddle. They live in Minneapolis.
"Chris, Jo, Elise, and Alex bonded over being the only queer waiters at a restaurant, but their friendship long outlasted their stint at the job. Ten years on, the crew--now in their mid and late thirties--face a whole slew of new challenges: parenting, vying for promotions, balancing partying and work, being judged by baby gays at the club, and scariest of all, drifting apart. Fans of Bongiovanni's Grease Bats will enjoy the familiar flavors of a messy, horny, queer and trans friend squad but paired with a more nuanced slice-of-life narrative. These characters are trying to stay true to themselves, invest in their communities, get laid, and support each other."-- "Maia Kobabe, author of Gender Queer"
"Mimosa is a delightful, messy, passionate, frustrating, and loving glimpse into the way our found families both nourish and force our growth. It overflows with familiarity for anyone who is lucky enough to live a life surrounded by queer people, and it speaks with compassion about the ebb and flow of the relationships that sand us down into ourselves."-- "Rosemary Valero-O'Connell, illustrator of Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me"
