Lucy Knisley’s autobiographical comics buck the trend of cartoon memoirs. Rather than working in sketchy and rough line work like Jeffrey Brown’s comics, they’re lushly illustrated; and rather than the raw black-and-white that most autobio cartoonists work in, her strips are presented in a full, delightful color. Her newest book is titled Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, and it’s a combination of food-related stories and recipes written out in cartoon form (which is a GENIUS IDEA). Knisley will read from her book, sign copies, and offer samples of recipes from Relish. The only thing better than comics? Free food.
