So, no one told you life was gonna be this gay! Grease Bats stars Andy, a trans genderqueer individual who is both tough and loving, and their BFF Scout, an all-feelings-all-the-time mistake-maker.

Andy and Scout are best buds, roommates, and gay disasters. Along with their friends and plenty of beer, they're just trying to make it through their 20s, survive late capitalism, and navigate the dating world. Tough and loving Andy is a genderqueer trans individual, who dates like there's no tomorrow, while Scout, an all-feelings-all-the-time mistake-maker, is still languishing over her ex-girlfriend...from like two years ago.

Created by Archie Bongiovanni (The Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns) and originally published on Autostraddle, this edition collects all the best misadventures, internet dates, and bad decisions in one place!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "This sincere and hilarious collection of comic strips tosses the reader into the chaotic lives of Andy and Scout: broke, queer, 20-something, ride-or-die best friends forever. When Scout's crush, Sami, asks the pair to hang out at a bar, Andy (who uses the pronouns they/them) is immediately interested. "Queer night at the hub? Trans night at Magic Bar? Dancing at Purple Unicorn?" Nope: Sami is straight, doesn't know about Scout's feelings, and has invited them to a sports bar. Undeterred, Andy pulls on their gayest tank top, jorts, Chucks, and wristbands. They still get misgendered, but Andy ends up making out with a girl in the bathroom and scores free drinks, so the evening is declared a success. Scout and Andy support and heckle each other through failed romance and work problems; they mourn the closing of LGBTQ community spaces; rage at politics; make new friends; and party at every opportunity. The book is aimed at a certain insider set, who will find their milieu mirrored back brilliantly. Bongiovanni's dialogue, meanwhile, is witty and rife with political commentary. . The scribbly art crackles with life and energy. This series reaches to pick up the mantle set down by Dykes To Watch Out For. (Sept.)"
