The first full-length collection of irreverent and sweet comic strips from Rick Worley. Featuring a foreword by StevieD and EvilJeff from the Comic Book Queers podcast.
Foul-mouthed, sex-obsessed and misanthropic, Rick is no ordinary cute cartoon rabbit. The strips in this hysterically funny, surprisingly sweet collection range from fantasy tales about a closeted fundamentalist teddy bear, an oversexed fox, and a doomed robot love affair to autobiographical comics that share maybe a little too much information about the author. In their quest for contentment, the characters fail, fail, and sometimes fail again, but they never stop looking. There’s always the chance they’ll find that one person who was worth the search.
Or maybe not.
“There’s a brutal frankness and honesty coming from these foxes and teddy bears that you rarely see anywhere else. Comics are the one of the last havens to be truly offensive and beautifully unapologetic.” — from the foreword by StevieD and EvilJeff from the Comic Book Queers podcast.
“Beautifully drawn, hilarious, wistful, profane and very human. Rick Worley’s A Waste of Time knocked me out.” — Robert Kirby, creator of Curbside, Boy Trouble and THREE.
“Rick Worley’s insightful A Waste of Time comic strips are simultaneously tender and perverse—like his bunny.” — Howard Cruse, author of Stuck Rubber Baby and Wendel.

Minnie is queer and carefree—she’s not even fazed much by her mother, who refuses to understand why her daughter can’t patch things up with her ex-boyfriend.
At the beginning of the series, we learn how Minnie leaves Ruben for Mia and discovers the pleasures of love with a woman—like cheering on the cast of The L Word and going to meetings of FemFist together.
She meets Mia’s two mothers and cuts a few not-so-understanding acquaintances from her address book. She comes out at work and discovers “the scene”, where she is scrutinized by her lover’s ex. And, of course, she gets reintroduced to sex and finds out she’ll never have to fake her orgasms again.
Minnie enjoys considerable success in the Netherlands, where she has appeared in lesbian magazine Zij aan Zij since 2004. Now, she plans to take on the world!
In this sequel to his best-selling graphic novel Maybe…Maybe Not, Ralf König tells us what happens once the honeymoon is over for newlyweds Axel and Doro—and how they once again cross paths (and lock horns) with Norbert and Waltrina. Could Axel really be cheating on his pregnant wife? With another man? Ralf König’s screwiest comedy yet will have you saying “Maybe…Maybe Not Again!”
English translation by Jeff Krell (Jayson).
