You Don't Get There From Here #21
by Carrie McNinch Author
You Don't Get There From Here #21 is dedicated to Dylan Williams and deals with Carrie's grief in the wake of the Sparkplug Comic Books founder's death. Williams once wrote, "[B]eing prone to depression myself, Carrie's work reminds me what a struggle it has been and is. With deceptively simple art, she has managed to capture the trials and tribulations of every day of her life for years and not be repetitive. I highly recommend this zine (and her book, I Want Everything to be Okay); it's been a genuine pleasure getting to work with them." We couldn't agree more. Issue 21 of Carrie's comic diary also deals with a vast multitude of life-issues, responsibilities, and daily travails. We see Carrie addressing the concerns of aging, taking solace in nature, eating delicious vegan meals, communicating with family, and evading poisonous snakes (both literal and metaphorical). You Don't Get There From Here is massively additive. Be forewarned: After a few issues you will be hooked and you will fall in love with Carrie and find commonality in her adventures, as she fights to dodge the slings and arrows of life.
