Growing up too fast...

Phoenix Coverley

Lynda Barry is my favorite comic artist. If you haven't checked out her books, I highly recommend it. She is a contemporary of Matt Groening. She had Marly's Comeek at the same time he made Akbar & Jeff. Both of them ran in The Reader, the liberal San Diego free paper when I was growing up. She is the master at turning juvenile realism into art. Several years ago I had the privilege of taking a writing class from her at Omega in upstate NY. She's as funny, unapologetically revealing and compassionate in person as her comics. If you haven't already, check out her stuff!
