"Diario de Oaxaca is artist Peter Kuper's chronicle of two years living in Oaxaca, Mexico, encountering its modern conflicts against the backdrop of the country's ageless beauty and enduring rhythms. From a town held hostage by soldiers to the miracle of the Monarchs' sanctuary, Kuper renders his experiences in vivid detail, capturing both the light and shadows that define life in Mexico."--Jacket.
"This collection of diary comics features the ennui and wee of twenty-something Jane Mai whose emotions and art traverse the high and low. Moments of visual poetry and heartbreak are interspersed by bad body hair and bathroom disasters--much like life."--Amazon.com.
