She has published several books with Fantagraphics, including Funeral of the Heart and Holy Moly.  She also has several albums out with her band, Scary Mansion, writes songs, and produces beats for pop and hip-hop artists. Her latest illustrated novel is Not Funny Ha-Ha (Fantagraphics), is a non-judgmental, comforting, even humorous look at what a woman can go through during an abortion.
