Siya Oum has become a much more commodifiable artist since her first series of Lola XOXO for Aspen last year and the follow-up spinoff Wasteland Madam, as she has been picked up for cover variant work by more prominent publishers, including for this week's Star Wars: The Force Awakens adaptation for Marvel.
But she's returning to the woman she loves with a second volume of Lola XOXO, out in September, written, drawn and painted by her, as well as a volume of collected artwork.
Here's a look at Aspen's September 2016 solicitations.
