What is it that both fascinates and averts us to autobiographies? When we see Ã¢â‚¬Å“autobiographicalÃ¢â‚¬Â on a comic weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re more likely to skip over it. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Who wants to read about someone brushing their teeth?Ã¢â‚¬Â Yet when we read something that we know is from life it adds more power to the story. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a double edged sword. The public must be tricked into reading autobiographical comic strips but once theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re sucked in then thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only that much more flavor because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“true to lifeÃ¢â‚¬Â
