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.
