It's easy to understand why Vanessa Davis has taken the comic industry by storm and is poised to do the same with the world-at-large, her comics are pure chutzpah, gorgeously illustrated in watercolors. No story is too painful to tell -- like how much she enjoyed fat camp. Nor too off limits -- like her critique of R. Crumb. Nor too personal -- like her stories of growing up Jewish in Florida. Using her sweet but biting wit, Davis effortlessly carves out a wholly original and refreshing niche in two well-worn territories: autobio comics and the Jewish identity. Davis draws strips from her daily diary often centering on her relationships with men, her mother, and eventually her long-time boyfriend. Her intimacy, self deprecation and candor has deservedly earned her many accolades and awards. Her deft comedic touch will surely set her as the cartoonist counterpart to fellow humorists David Sedaris, Fran Lebowitz and Sloane Crosley.
VANESSA DAVIS was born in West Palm Beach, Florida and lives in Santa Rosa, California. She is the author of SPANIEL RAGE. Her comics have appeared in VICE, THE NEW YORK TIMES, and TABLET.

Editorial Reviews

Vanessa Davis's autobiographical slice-of-life drawings are both totally relatable and sweetly surreal.
