Sand Diego Diary by Gabrielle Bell

Annie Koyama of Koyama Press writes:

I’ve enjoyed Gabrielle Bell’s comics and love the ‘Diary’ and ‘San Diego Diary’ books published by Uncivilized Books. I like a lot of autobiographical comics but the best ones for me deal well with the mundane aspects of life. Her use of black ink for shading is so great. I don’t usually have time or the inclination to re-read books, but I have done that with these ones.

Tom K and Gabrielle Bell are also on Frank Santoro’s reading list.
