Primahood is the interweaving of two narrative spaces: MamaPants and Primazonia. Together, they tell stories and ask questions that might lead to thoughts about femaleness, social constructs, where we are, where we are going, and how we relate to one another. Also, you might laugh. Welcome to Primazonia!

Primahood: Magenta—Slice-of-Life Storytelling with a Surreal Sideline in Tyler Cohen’s Warm Exploration of Modern Parenting

by Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier


"Tyler Cohen is a pro at tackling the sticky subjects of gender identity, sexuality, motherhood, and what exactly it means to be a girl. I’ve been a fan of her nuanced comics and surreal illustrations for years, and I’m so glad to see them collected in a book."
~ MariNaomi, author and illustrator of Turning Japanese

"Mama Pants juxtaposes comics about frequently hilarious, often terrifying, always glorious experience of raising a girl in America with beautifully surreal artwork which explores the Id of parenting itself. Wild and messy, truthfully funny and casually radical, this is an amazing, vibrant, important book."
~Michelle Tea, author of Black Wave

"The Primazons...worth a thousand words... but some of them are words that are not yet a part of our language. Mamapants explores what it is to be female, to be a mother, to be a child, told in beautifully expressive drawings."
~Roberta Gregory, Naughty Bits

"Deciding what's important as a parent is relatively easy; it's when your kids decide something else that the irony, the pain, and the hilarity of being a radical parent hit you in the face. Tyler Cohen's images and words in Primahood capture it all!"
~Tomas Moniz, Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood
