re:bound

 Here is my debut graphic memoir,    re:bound   . This story was formless for a number of years until I discovered the art of graphic literature. And with this, I have been able to share my truth, fictionalized only by the retelling and redrawing of it. Where I could not find understanding from those immediately around me, I searched for empathy in art and literature, but there, too, it was bastardized by a white chorus. There is no shortage of Asian American voices and other voices of color who have gifted me with their visions and a confidence to share re:bound with all of you. I realized that if I wanted this story to be told, I would have to tell it myself. And if I didn’t have existing literature off of which to base my own experience, I would have to make sense of it through my own words and illustrations. This book is that undertaking.  Read an  excerpt  on  The Felt.   This book is available  here , at the Barnard Library, at SUNY Geneseo’s library, at Escape Pod Comics in Huntington, NY and at McNally’s Bookstore in SoHo.

Praise for re:bound

“...this memoir’s self awareness and sincerity rejects the pseudo~edge of self deprecation and cynicism for the truly novel and radically gentle possibility of genuine self compassion.” -Katherine’s Place, Katherine Zito

“Cartooning is ultimately a writer's medium. The best comics are, like Britina's, driven by strong writing.” - Cartoonist Tom Motley

“[re:bound] has us in tears of all kinds” -Angry Asian Girls
