    I first discovered Liz Prince's work through the DIY punk site If You Make It (which still hosts some excellent comics and albums, if you're into cool free stuff). So, I was delighted to see that there was finally a collection (put out by DIY punk distributor Silver Sprocket) of her music-related comics from IYMI and her later work for Razorcake magazine, another DIY punk outlet. Liz's passion for pop-punk is infectious and I highly recommend you pop on a little Lifetime or The Descendants and r I first discovered Liz Prince's work through the DIY punk site If You Make It (which still hosts some excellent comics and albums, if you're into cool free stuff).

    A great collection of short comics about music, friendship and the punk community. I found it a welcome diversion to the onslaught of depressing political news I've been ingesting!
