"A graphic memoir I'll keep reading until I die": Spit and Passion by Cristy C. Road [REVIEW]

POC Zine Project founder Daniela Capistrano’s review of Spit and Passion by Cristy C Road.

excerpt:

I’ll call Spit and Passion amazing the same way that I define childhood resilience and secret dreams as amazing – as conduits to freedom. Sometimes words just don’t do incredible manifestations of life’s experiences justice. But yes, Spit and Passion is amazing, and you should find a way to read it as soon as possible.

Spit and Passion is available now through Feminist Press.
