Mirror, Window - Jessica Abel

Mirror, Window

A collection of all of Artbabe volume 2 and several non-fiction and journalistic stories published during the same period (1997-1999).

Artbabe was a comics series that ran, in jumbo minicomics and standard American comic book format, from 1992 – 1999. The comics contained fictional short stories (none of which, by the way, featured cover model Artbabe as a character). The subjects of the stories run the gamut, but it’s safe to say that a lot of them deal with young Chicagoans grappling with serious questions in their lives, such as Does she love me?, Can I stay friends with someone who has betrayed my trust?, and Can I make a life as an artist? There’s also a lot of funny stuff, don’t worry.
