by Jessica Abel
Mirror, Window is the first book collection by Jessica Abel, one of the most exciting young cartoonists to emerge in the late 1990s. Collecting the first four issues of her Artbabe series from Fantagraphics and more, Mirror, Window proves Abel to be one of the brightest lights in comix to watch as we proceed into the next century. Abel's stories are peppered with hipsters, tattoos, piercings, trendy haircuts, and cutting-edge fashion, but don't let the generational trappings fool you. Her intuitive ear for dialogue and characterization has made Artbabe a hit amongst people of all ages, especially women. Mirror, Window collects several short stories focusing on the infinite ways that regret, insecurity, and euphoria manifest in relationships.
