The Assassin and The Whiner

The Assassin and the Whiner is a tormented look at the life of an alcoholic. Set up as diary entries, this zine succeeds in documenting the admittedly self-deprecating existence of the author who is experiencing a downward spiral expressed almost too vividly through animation. The art is simple and pure, along with the written words comes a sense of sadness, including a bold acceptance. Carrie is a poet and an artist, her descriptions are beautiful and her sensitivity is explored passionately within the pages of the comic. I truly enjoyed this zine, her brutal honesty and tone made me fully sympathize with her plight. (Lara Rock)
