The Cupboard's New Volume and First-Ever Contest
Bully/Bullied by James Scott and Ryan Call is now available from The Cupboard. Two stories, one story.
*ABOUT THE VOLUME*
One tough kid and another tough kid and two stories, told side-by-side, about what it is we might want from one another, how it feels to just be left alone. Nick Gradowski is a bully. Jeremy Haskins is bullied. Tanya Wheatley is tough as shit. The Winter Carnival is a bright beacon, a place for handjobs and blue polar bears. If there are two sides to every story, Bully / Bullied wants to find a third, a fourth, a way out from our actions and their consequences.
Read excerpts here.
