In the fourth installment of her serial comic, November Garcia continues her existential mega-journey with her signature sense of humor and zest for life. From somewhat self-inflicted calamity to odd encounters with her bizarre family—as well as travels, curious chemical substances, and various other forms of self-deprecating autobio—this mini picks up where Malarkey #3 left off, while showing a bit more flex with color.
In her fifth and final issue of the ‘Malarkey’ series, November Garcia attempts to move beyond her self-destructive, debaucherous hijinks (though there’s still plenty of that) in order to address a sudden onslaught of deaths, deal with complicated familial relationships, as well as reflect on youth and mortality. Steeped in her signature self-effacing humor, this work continues to demonstrate why she is what reviewer Ryan Carey calls “the premier autobio cartoonist of our time”.
