Lynda Barry

If you don’t know the work of Lynda Barry, you should. She is an amazing comic artist. Her syndicated comic strip, Ernie Pook’s Comeek, has run for years and years. I first came across her via some small book collections of these comics and then saw a play based on her wonderful coming-of-age book The Good Times are Killing Me. For many reasons she sort of faded from view, but fortunately is now getting some well-deserved attention again with the publication of her latest book, What It Is, published by the terrific Drawn & Quarterly.
