A lonesome cowgirl tormented by cattle-stealing UFOs. A mysterious alien abductee dropped back to earth in the middle of the desert. A sizzling romance hotter than a red rock in the sun... Inspired by the history of Jewish cowboys and cattle ranchers, this sci-fi Western is sure to make you blush!
"The lesbian imagination at full play; the burning bush lives again. Comics have always been a part of our subversive history and now we have one in that subversive language,Yiddish. Thank you for your reimaginings, Mira Schlosberg." - Joan Nestle
“Kugel Western is a lavish feast for the eyes and soul. Filled with queer longing, desire and Jewish symbology, including Yiddish sound effects, it is a worthy and wily follow-up to Schlosberg’s Guidebook to Queer Jewish Spirituality. What surprised me most is not her ability to reinvent genres as she invokes them, which she does; or the sheer sexiness of the illustrations: they are obviously hot as hell. What I am most impressed by is the sensitivity and authenticity of this work. Schlosberg has produced a truly touching lesbian romance in a few swift, inky strokes. Her figures connect with one another, sprawling delicate and exuberant as the imagination which produced them, across Kugel Western’s gripping pages.” - Eloise Grills
