That Is Your Trip, This Is Mine

Sheffield-based illustrator Missy Tassles sent us the colourful volume on the right, a collection of pieces from her comic That Is Your Trip. . . This Is Mine. It’s a very likeable, optimistic read about Missy’s everyday life and the things that entertain her. This edition includes the distinguishing characteristics of Missy’s grandparents, her jaunt to Margate and some musings on the mysterious Dr Shaw, a shadowy figure at Sheffield’s Showroom Cinema. There’s also a strong focus on music, with pages featuring Missy’s desert island discs, a profile of Joe Meek, and the challenge of picking out favourite songs to sing to a newborn baby. The stories flick effortlessly between recollections of being violently sick at a teenage Pulp gig, and more recent, adult rebellions — you know, bringing packed lunches to a McDonalds food court.
