The Academic Hour, charts the romance between Poethel, a disgraced architecture professor, and his student, Liana. Told in a series of surreal, vibrant vignettes, and set in a fantastic, logic-defying college of shifting rooms and secret performance spaces, The Academic Hour affirms how an intense, fledgling relationship can ignite the impulse for storytelling with unbridled, ferocious creative energy.

Richard McGuire, author of Here, writes:

“Keren Katz’s comics transcend the medium, the text is poetry, the drawings are dance, the stories are not like anyone else, she is a true original.”

Open every illuminated correspondence between two star-crossed artists yet to meet - and discover a dizzying, dazzling almost love story.

176 pages, 6 x 9 in, full color.

The Backstage of a Dishwashing Web Show is a haunting mesh of food, dance, the lost possibilities of childhood, missed connections, love, seltzer, performance, hunger, hope, and things that are irretrievably lost but might yet be found. It’s told in poetic words and illuminated in bright, strange, dancerly pictures. Keren Katz is an artist through and through, a being of sensitivity and story. She is what God may have intended humans to be, if the world made more sense. I love her work more than anything.”
- Liana Finck, author of Passing for Human
