Comics That Need Attention

Title: Everyday Pants #1
Writer/Artist: Ramsey Beyer
Publisher: Self-Published
Purchase: http://www.etsy.com/shop/everydaypants
Review:
Beyer is a friend of Liz Prince and makes similar themed comics, they focus around punk and DIY communities and her life in them. Personally some relatable stuff for me, but even if you have no punk interest her stories still have themes which we’ve all been through.
The comic is an autobiographical sort of diary. She discusses her life in Baltimore living at Frisby House and lists all the bands she’s hosted. She often breaks the forth wall and talks to us. The comic also features an hourly done comic that had a much quicker drawing style, but is’ quite entertaining  Each hour gets 3 panels in classic newspaper strip style.
A four page story towards the end of the comic, “The Fest 9”, tells the story of her travels with friends down to Florida to go The Fest. I pick this story to cover because it has few words, but just great artwork. Through perfectly placed panels and detailed drawings the story is quick and told fully. Below are two of my favorite panels in the strip. The use of a postcard as a panel is just wonderful.

I picked this comic up at SPX 2012. I also picked up her full length comic Year One which is a weekly comic (she did 2 pages a week for 46 weeks) that tells her moving to Philadelphia. She has also posted comics on If You Make It too. I really need to pick up issue #2 of this sometime soon. Really a great emerging talent, looking forward to more of her comics!
