2004 Alternative Press Expo Swag Review: When I Was Brave and Sour Pussy

This is one of those clever 2 in 1 preview books where you read the first comic and then flip it over and read the other one. Well, I thought it was clever. When I Was Brave is by Kelli Nelson is a painful high school reminiscence done in her usual heavy, but still amazingly clean line (see Dream Project, June 1, 2000). Going against the grain is always tough, but even tougher when going against wrong-headed authority as well. The story is deftly told and very sad. Robyn Chapman's Sour Pussy is about a girl making a zine called Sour Pussy. Oh, damn, I gave away the ending, oh well. There are some interesting drawings on Robyn's site, Unpopular Comics. If Edvard Munch had drawn comics, they might have looked similar to these.
When I Was Brave and Sour Pussy for more of their work, I don't know if you can buy this preview.
