In our future: What's Your Sign, Girl?

We (meaning me) are very excited about this prediction: in the autumn of 2015, Ninth Art Press will publish "What's Your Sign Girl," an anthology edited by Rob Kirby.

Here's how Rob describes the book:

Most people can say what sign of the zodiac they are, whether or not they know what the sign means or even believe in astrology. But the twelve alt-cartoonists in What’s Your Sign, Girl? have something to say about their locations on the zodiacal calendar. With enthusiasm, skepticism, or dismay, the artists share how their signs impact self, relationships and their places in the cosmos. 

Here's a tantalizing sneak-peek at a page from the entry by the wonderful Marnie Galloway:
