Graphic Nonfiction: Salt Soap by Lucy Bellwood

You've probably already seen this one, as it really hit the rounds (and for good reason), but just in case, this week's graphic nonfiction is Salt Soap from Panel Pal Lucy Bellwood.

Lucy's been exploding as a creator in the past year, and I couldn't be happier for her. She's extremely talented and is one of those who understands that the key to strong autobiographical comics is to admit your vulnerabilities. This is particularly true here, as Lucy talks about how dealing with a breakup can cause you to do some odd things, even when you think you're fully ready to let go.

In addition to being a great creator, Lucy is a great human being as well, and if you haven't had a chance to sample her work before, this is a great place to start.

Here's a sample from Salt Soap:
