By Beth Hetland
I was a bit excited to read this comic as I really liked the way the cover was made (a sealable flap thing!), but I found myself fairly disappointed.
I mean, it starts off well enough (if incredibly indie comic) with some girls running through a snowy forest and going ice skating. But then it becomes incredibly cliched with mean girls (skating with your little sister makes you such a loser) and tragedy. Then it just ends. I mean, seriously, I felt as though it ended in the middle of the scene. I'm not saying that Hetland can't make good comics, just that the brevity of this one combined with the cliches and lack of originality means that this didn't really do anything for me.
(Damn, I hope this isn't autobio or something. Then I would feel awful.)
