Dark Horse to launch ‘Everyone is Tulip’ OGN June 2021

‘Everyone is Tulip’ explores the discomfort of modern-day social media fame.

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has announced new original graphic novel Everyone is Tulip set to debut June 2021. The series is by Dave Baker and Nicole Goux the same creative team behind F*ck Off Squad. They’re teaming up with color artist Ellie Hall on the project which Dark Horse says is a “vividly revealing and probingly psychological graphic novel Everyone Is Tulip, arriving June 2021.”

“This project is a deeply personal work for me. It’s mined from experience, both personal and observed. Everyone Is Tulip is a narrative centered around compromise,” Baker said in a press release sent to AIPT. “It seems to be the singular constant in the existence of most artists. How to mitigate it, how to embrace it, and how to live with it.”

Goux we live in a world that is rapidly changing and, “Everyone Is Tulip is about navigating technology and social media as an artist and a human, and how that informs what you make. Dave and I started this book at a point when we were being asked to make compromises in our work with the offer of potential success and had to make serious decisions about what direction we wanted our careers to go. There is so much gray area surrounding the idea of pure art versus successful art, and every artist has to choose what they can live with. Everyone Is Tulip asks what you are willing to sacrifice to get what you want, what compromises are you willing to make, who are you willing to screw to make it happen, and also, what is the nature of art and theft in our ever-changing society.”

So what’s Everyone is Tulip about?

As her daily life grows ever more warped, thanks to a sudden army of faithful fans and hecklers, Becca begins to question if the struggle is worth the rewards. From her romantic endeavors to her self-understanding, every facet of Becca’s life begins to shift and evolve. From the outside it looks like Becca is living the dream, but Is this weight of her breakthrough really going to be her undoing?
