Have you ever wanted to live in Brooklyn as a post-college slacker type without succumbing to the sociological pratfalls of hispterdom?
No? Ok, well have you ever wanted to read about people living the aforementioned life? Great! then come on over and serve yourself up a slice of Octopus Pie!
Octopus Pie is the brainchild of Meredith Gran, who was also the power behind the first NEWW this past spring. She’s a force to be reckoned with. I wouldn’t cross her. Just sayin’.
OP centers around Eve Ning, a Chinese-American non-hipster post-college Brooklynite who works at an organic grocery store, saves feral parrots and swears she’ll never drink again. She hates a lot of things.
Eve is joined by her roommate Hanna, and various other cohorts as they muddle their way through the jungle that is one’s twenties. It’s a storyline base comic, so expect to spend some time in the archives. They’re good, I promise. You’ll have fun. There will be ice cream after. And possibly pot.
The art and storytelling are solid and fun and I wholly support any slice of life comic that takes time to parody Grey Gardens.
So go and read it, already, will ya? Octopus Pie updates um, when it updates. Just keep your eyes peeled. You won’t be disappointed.
