Out of Hollow Water, the debut book by Anna Bongiovanni, is an exercise in the fantastical and intensely personal, plumbing hidden depths both real and imagined. It is a work that wanders into the dark recesses of the female experience, where the only escape is through cathartic release, taking myriad forms.
Anna Bongiovanni is a cartoonist who spends most of their time drawing comics about two best friends on Autostraddle.com, a queer lifestyle website. Their comics tend to center around queer themes, ideas, and characters and can be either silly, educational, or honest and emotional, sometimes all at once.
