Julia Gfrörer

Julia Gfrörer is an American cartoonist living in New York. She is the author and illustrator of Black Is the Color and Laid Waste for Fantagraphics Books. Her name is pronounced something like “gff RUE er” to an actual German speaker, but generations of American accents have evolved closer to “gff RARE” or “grr FAIR.” She won’t be upset if you get it wrong.
