Working, working, working! Frances Scarland continues to search for a perfect balance in her career as a law clerk, where the only certainty seems to be flux. Yet she loses footing as her close friend Vickie rides an unrelated wave of opportunity. Pope Hats #3 offers the lengthiest installment yet in Rilly’s ongoing story about the give and take of professional success. With some extraneous strips and a new letters page. Ethan Rilly won the 2012 Doug Wright Spotlight Award for his work on Pope Hats. The series and second issue are also nominated for the 2012 SPX Ignatz award.

And…

Pope Hats #1
by Ethan Rilly.
Distributed by AdHouse Books

Pope Hats follows the trials of a young woman named Frances Scarland, whose social circle mainly consists of an alcoholic actress and an inept ghost named Saarsgard. The comic is an engaging slice-of-life story about young people navigating their own daily shortcomings.

Pope Hats was the winner of a 2008 Xeric Foundation Grant. An earlier mini-comic version of the story was shortlisted for the 2008 Doug Wright Awards in the category of Best Emerging Talent. “Pope Hats by Ethan Rilly is the most impressive debut comic I’ve seen in years. The work has that deceptive quality of ease about it—the characters breeze across the page with sparkling dialogue and wonderfully observed gestures.”
–Seth (author of George Sprott and It’s A Good Life If You Don’t Weaken)
