Vanessa Davis - Make Me a Woman
This was a very nice collection of autobiographical comics by Vanessa Davis. I'd read most of the fancy colour ones on-line as there were lots of links to them as they came out, from the Comics Reporter. They are well worth reading again. The book also has lots of lovely pencil drawing pages from her sketchbooks. I am always a big fan of good pencil drawings and these are great. It's nice to read some autobiography that's more finished for a change and pretty to look at, after all the diary style, done in a hurry, autobiography I've been reading lately. Not that there's anything wrong with that stuff, it's just nice to have a change. It's a very good looking oversized book, very well printed.
