About Meat & Bone

Meat & Bone is described by Verhoeven as “a queer slice-of- life drama about dating and eating.” The story, which takes place in Toronto and currently lives online as a popular webcomic, focuses on the lives of three roommates and their interpersonal struggles.

While one roommate is wrestling with severe body image issues, another is trying to figure out how to navigate her new polyamorous relationships—without hurting any of her partners. Meanwhile, the third roommate practically moves into the gym, where’s she’s quietly working through her own problems and those of her friends. In Meat & Bone, Verhoeven winds these threads into an unflinching, beautifully illustrated exploration of how women learn to define themselves in the modern world.

Meat & Bone will be published in May 2019
