Could this book be any more charming? I don't think so.
The first comic is a drawing of Missy holding a Bert (Ernie's friend) record album. You discover later in the book that Missy loves buying records (vinyl), but never listens to them. I want to listen to that Bert album!
Although Missy is relentlessly adorable, she faces her challenges. One of the more poignant comics is about her struggle to find love. Every crush inevitably ends the same way, with Missy in the middle of a a valentine-shaped light in a tunnel of darkness, with "a broken heart everytime."
Missy is from outside Pittsburgh and now lives in Atlanta. On a visit to NYC, a taxi driver asks her and her friends, "Are you guys from outta town?" and observes, "You look fresh, New Yorkers are stale." What?!? Okay, yeah.
Missy is a prolific maker of zines and minicomics. Visit her shop, Sugar Cookie, and check 'em out.
