Awkward Silence is a personal comic book that looks at quietness and solitude in a loud world. The story follows the creator as they look at how loudness and quietness has affected them and changed how they communicate with other people and their environment. Being mute and not being able to speak has many implications and these are delicately presented in this intimate and experimental comic book memoir.

Awkward Silence is personal and expressive and will connect with readers who love zines, comics and outsider art.
Each copy is unique. The cover features hand stitching, where each individual copy has been sewn and hand bound.

Awkward Silence will appeal to people who like zines, perzines, queer zines and comics, graphic memoirs and graphic medicine comics.

- 32 pages
- Black and white (mostly)
- Hand bound and stapled
- Made with love and honesty.

The day I wore this pin, I got two dif people asking me what it meant and I got to talk about the intersection of queerness, transness, and autism and it was an amazing convo. In the weirdest place too, the pharmacy line for meds HAHA but it was such a sweet experience so this pin lives on my Jean vest now. I love it !!

Absolutely loved this zine! Should be read by everyone! Steven also sent me a little mini zine called the joy of missing out and it might be the most relatable thing I’ve read all year! Thank you x
