Mournals March Journals

"I think that in 50 years we'll look upon customer service the way we now look at slavery.."
These wise words from the artist's fat orange kitty are just a bit what makes this an awesome diary, make that...journal comic. In her back page blurb Suzette Smith writes "in March 2014 I started keeping a journal. March is generally a bleak time of year." Amen to that.
Smith takes the seasonal doldrums of daily life - work at a social service center, volunteering, school, lost notebooks, housemate and love troubles - and whips up an appetizing slice of her life. Whether she's running into a tree and "everyone totally saw" or she's just running, "2.5 miles today," Smith keeps it light and silly with blocks of sketchy graphite scenes. -NY
