Sleeping While Standing by Taki Soma
A series of short autobiographical strips, dropping in at important events throughout her life that shaped who she is today, told in a compelling and humorous authorial voice. We are led by Taki through her early childhood in Japan in the early 80s, to moving to Minnesota, the separation of her parents, childhood trauma, teenage angst, death, drugs, comics, health issues, love, fertility, pets and zombies; all of life is here in this book!
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.
Plus Forewords by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming!!!
