Malarkey 2 by November Garcia
Malarkey collects November Garcia’s great self-deprecating autobio comics, in which she navigates goofy humor and real emotion with equal aplomb. This issue features short stories as diverse as drug-fueled art antics, drunken inking, Comix Fantasies, Oh Mom! and lots more. Charming and fun.
"There’s a tremendous amount to admire in Malarkey — so much so that I struggle to categorize all the things about it that impress me. It’s honest, it’s self-deprecating, it’s witty, it’s smart, it’s superbly illustrated, and it’s utterly devoid of pretense. If you were to strip away the layers of bullshit so many cartoonists surround themselves with in their portrayals of their “real” lives, boil down the essence of the things they get right, and filter it through a lens that sees the humor inherent in just about everything, this is what you’d get."
