New Next-Door Neighbor: “Glenna Evans” by Barbara Rushkoff & Nathan Schreiber

November 26th, 2008 by Larry Smith

ch17_01.jpgThe newest installment of Next-Door Neighbor, SMITH’s series of true neighbor tales from our favorite writers and artists, brings us on home to Brooklyn with “Glenna Evans” a rich, intense tale written by Barbara Rushkoff and illustrated in just-the-right rich yellows and purples by Nathan Schreiber. “Glenna Evans” is a story many of us can relate to: the nosy, crazy neighbor who infuses you with varying degrees fear, sympathy, even affection—depending on the day, the moment, her mood. “As with many of the NDN series its a perfectly formed little short story comic that captures a segment of life most readers can empathise with,” say the UK-comic critics at Forbidden Planet International. Commenting on Rushkoff and Schreiber’s story, SMITH community member Ronchick wrote, “I was actually teary eyed at the story’s end.” Me, too.

    This comic sounds so interesting. “I was actually teary eyed at the story’s end.” These words make me more curious.
