Coco Roco sounds a bit exotic. I guess I'd try some Peruvian food! Never did it before!

I've been buying Local all along and picked up #6 last week without looking real close at the cover. I just read it and discovered to my surprise and delight it's set in Park Slope, Brooklyn, my home.

Brian and Ryan , you've both done a wonderful job of capturing the look and feel of Park Slope--not only in its local landmarks (Little Red Hens! Dizzy's! Those heavy, heavy brownstoen front doors!)--but also the sensation of awkward living conditions, and the problem with being invisible in a big city. I'll be blogging about this issue soon; it spoke to me above and beyond just being set in Park Slope. Great stuff; thanks guys.

All of these issues would make amazing short films. In their own right as comics however they are just as captivating and powerful. As a girl who only recently discovered this cool underbelly of comics thru my boyfriend this one pull me right in. Local has given me a whole new respect for Comics, and their roll in the art world as well as simply in the everyday world. The soundtracks are also amazing and i'm going to make mixes of the songs so i can listen to the stories again.
