Comic Reflections features the work of two pioneering cartoonists, Lynda Barry (WI) and Roz Chast (NY). Often operating outside of the mainstream with work appearing in alternative weeklies, Barry has found great success producing comics that are humorous yet carry serious undercurrents. Known primarily for her long-running syndicated comic strip, Ernie Pook's Comeek, featuring characters such as Marlys and her friends and enemies, Barry relates stories of childhood angst and examines personal and societal topics. Similarly, Chast has drawn humor from everyday emotions and experiences. Since 1978, her cartoons for The New Yorker have poked fun at subjects such as guilt, anxiety, aging, family, friends, money, and real estate. Her brand of humor takes routine incidents and events, flips them inside out, and exposes them as flawed but funny moments.
