I’ve recently come across Sorry Comics by a guy called John. His comics are startlingly honest, well observed stories of very personal experiences and thoughts, which is perhaps why he keeps his surname to himself. I’ve seen many confessional comics that seem more like a cry for attention but John’s comics don’t have that subtext, they’re certainly cathartic for him but don’t demand the reader feel sorry for him, in fact many of the thoughts he shares are the kind of typical, and perhaps shallow, male reactions most of us try to hide. The art is clear, the blue tones work nicely and he brings a deceptively smart variety to the six panel grid he’s given himself. It won’t be to everyone’s tastes, this close a look at a stranger’s personal life can be offputting for some, but for those interested in the approaches towards autobiography it’s well worth a look.
