Coming Soon! Pre-Order this now and we will contact you on publication date!
Lisa is a sweet unicorn girl with a cyborg arm… and anger issues… who’s late for her first day of work. And if this occult fast food chain’s minions don’t stop attacking, she’ll never achieve her dream of making it as a musician!
Lisa Cheese moved to Earth City hoping to make a name for herself as a folk singer… but her very first open mic was a disaster, leaving her with a bionic arm and an identity crisis. Now she’s starting a crummy office job, her parents back in their home dimension are laying on the guilt trip, her sister’s acting smug, and the cool girl at the record store leaves her tongue-tied. But none of that will matter if the city’s demonic new burger corporation achieves its evil ambitions: Lisa’s very life is at stake! Fortunately, she has allies…
The astounding first graphic novel from artist/musician Kevin Alvir is packed with off-the-charts creativity and electric energy, blending vintage comic-book aesthetics with contemporary concerns and crusty lo-fi passion. Once you meet Lisa Cheese you’ll never be the same!

"Lisa Cheese and the Ghost Guitar: Attack of the Snack brought me back to the days when reading comics was taboo, long before the days of mainstream capes blockbusters and back to the days of zines that challenged conceptions and spoke with subversion, provocation, and excitement. Alvir is just a master of this style--I couldn't imagine a more perfect caper about magically corrupted foodstuffs, and that's just the beginning!" — Steve Orlando, writer of Scarlet Witch
“Lisa Cheese and Ghost Guitar is an utterly unhinged comic overflowing with wit, absurdity, and just pure dang childlike energy. Kevin Alvir delivers one infectiously memeable panel after another. Highly addictive reading.” — the Comic Book Couples Counseling Podcast
"This book was an insane delight, blending the struggle of life's mundanities with so many fun larger-than-life elements to create a fully realized yarn about finding your place amid all the craziness. It's just got those expressively cozy vibes thanks to the linework, colors, and equally colorful cast of characters. Popping Kirbyesque action often presents itself in such funny kinds of ways, like where else are you gonna see such dynamic rage over non-dairy coffee? That's a thing I really like about Lisa, she rages out over injustice of every kind and she's gonna do something about it! I loved the heck out of it, exactly the kind of comics I want to see out there." — Nick Cagnetti, writer/artist of Pink Lemonade
"This is raw and passionate cartooning that slaps. Visceral and violent one moment and endearingly cute the next, Lisa Cheese will charm anyone looking for a vigorous blast of pure comics." —James Kochalka, Eisner-award winning creator of Johnny Boo, Banana Fox, and American Elf
