Product Description A highly personal collection documenting the early months of artist Julia Kaye?s gender transition. Instead of a traditional written diary, Julia Kaye has always turned to art as a means of self-reflection. So when she began her gender transition in 2016, she decided to use her popular webcomic, Up and Out, to process her journey and help others with similar struggles realize they weren?t alone. Julia?s poignant, relatable comics honestly depict her personal ups and downs while dealing with the various issues involved in transitioning-from struggling with self-acceptance and challenging societal expectations, to moments of self-love and joy. Super Late Bloomer both educates and inspires, as Julia faces her difficulties head-on and commits to being wholly, authentically who she was always meant to be. Review From Publishers WeeklyStarred Review. Cartoonist and Disney artist Kaye's debut collection is a series of complementary contradictions: blunt yet precise; straightforward but nuanced; simple but beautiful. A collection of Kaye's first autobiographical strips from her once-absurdist, now rawly honest webcomic Up and Out, this work follows Kaye, a transgender woman, through part of her tumultuous first year on hormone replacement therapy and the social, physical, and mental shifts that accompanied that change ... Her tenacity in this hopeful story will be resonant for readers going through personal transitions of many kinds. (May)From The Trevor Project"Julia Kaye's comics beautifully illustrate the difficulties queer and trans people face, while also showing us how life-affirming the journey to self-love is. As a suicide prevention and crisis intervention resource for LGBTQ youth ages 13-24, we see first hand how painful life can be for queer and trans people in the US. We also see how incredibly resilient LGBTQ people are. Julia Kaye is a role model for the youth we serve, and we are so glad that Super Late Bloomer exists to show that it's never to late to be your true self." About the Author Julia Kaye is an artist and illustrator whose Up and Out webcomic has garnered hundreds of thousands of readers and wide critical praise. Her work has appeared on the upcoming Disney show Big City Greens, in Maxim and Cosmopolitan, and on BuzzFeed and GoComics. Julia lives in Los Angeles.
