And it was good: Vanessa Davis

Venessa Davis, the comic artist who can draw adolescent awkwardness better than I actually did adolescent awkwardness, gets props tonight for her ode to growing up Jewish.

"Dyseptic Academic" is a brief bildungsroman packed with scenes of her encounters with Exodus and Hebrew hymns, boys, Baptists, Bibles and most laudably, her struggle with the politics of the Chosen People. Enjoy.
