Graphic Novelists - Day 37

I met Leela Corman at the Theater for the New City, in the East Villiage, where she was performing in the show No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Show That Made Vaudeville Famous.
Leela tells me that her upcoming book, Unterzakhn, (Pantheon/Shocken, 2010) "is set in brothels and cheap theaters and one of the characters becomes a vaudeville diva."
Check out Leela's books, Subway Series and Queen's Day. With that in mind, it seemed more than appropriate to set up the Salomé inspired portrait below.
