Summary
"In this series of short autobiographical strips, acclaimed comics creator Taki Soma gently guides us through her early childhood in Japan in the '80s, moving to Minnesota, the separation of her parents, childhood trauma, teenage angst, death, drugs, comics, health issues, love, fertility, pets and zombies! We drop in at important events throughout her life that shaped who she is today, told in a compelling and humorous authorial voice with an accomplished cartoonist's eye for visual play, meaningful details and imaginative interludes. It's a picture of a highly regarded creator, with an unflinching look at some particularly harrowing moments, but threaded through with levity and love." --, Back cover
