Intriguing! The artist keeps fighting and turns terrible events into an uplifting story!
I recommend reading this if you are interested in feminist issues, censorship, authoritarianism, or have struggled to find passionate work in your life!

Simple pen and ink drawings are okay, story telling is good, idea and self promotion are excellent. But sometimes I wondered if I was seeing the "real" author or just her "artist" role.
