Spaniel Rage by Vanessa Davis
Vanessa Davis's autobiographical comics delighted readers ten years ago when she first began telling stories about her lifeas a young, single New Yorker. Spaniel Rage is filled with frank and immediate pencil-drawn accounts of dating woes, parental misunderstandings, hairstyle anxiety, and conversations with friends. Davis's gentle, self-deprecating anecdotes reveal wry truths about the contradictions of life in the big city. These comics are sexy, funny, lonely, beautiful, spare, and very smart—the finest work from a natural storyteller.
