Nurse Nurse #1-7
Available here

I love Katie Skelly's art and have been wanting some Nurse Nurse comics for a long time. After being rocked out by her Red Riding Hood story (, it felt just wrong not having any of her work, so I put the word out around the holidays that Nurse Nurse would be the perfect gift for me. And no one who claims to love me fulfilled this wish! Then I found out she had a sale going, special price for all seven, and treated myself. Can't wait to read these.

These were created as the author's senior thesis at Hampshire College, and each issue dissects a different label. It's a lot of bang for your buck: they're 24-26 pages each, dense with comics, essays, interviews, and snippets. I love the mix of humor and introspection, and her candor makes for great reading. She posts autobio comics on her blog with amazing frequency--highly recommended.
