332 pages. Full color. 5" x 8.5".

L Nichols, now a celebrated multi-disciplinary artist, engineer and father of two, was born in small town, rural Louisiana, assigned female and raised by conservative Christians. Flocks is his memoir of that childhood, and of the expectations of his family, friends and community, the flocks of Flocks, that shaped and re-shaped him as a child. Unexpectedly, L never takes the easy way out, never accuses, never rejects, never blames and never flinches in the telling of this personal history. L’s irresistibly charming drawings demonstrate what makes Flocks so special: L’s boundless empathy. Flocks tells more than a story of self-acceptance; it tells a story of acceptance itself.

"To date, Flocks is one of the most powerful works I’ve read, and one which, to be perfectly honest, I’d most likely avoid on paper. It charts Nichols’ own experiences of growing up in a Christian household and community and realising she’s gay and her subsequent struggle to reconcile her faith with her sexuality. It’s remarkable in that it avoids judgement and preachiness in her handling of what are generally perceived as extremely sensitive subjects... ...It’s a searingly honest piece of work."

— Zainab Akhtar, Comics Beat
