I might have mentioned before that I don't generally do autobiographical or diary-style comics, mainly because my actual life is not as interesting as the stuff I can make up. This one, however, is a 99% true story that happened to me when I was 17 or so. Marci was not named Marci, however. And the Rainbow Reading Room in the story is Dallas' now-defunct Crossroads Market Bookstore. But getting a take-it-or-leave it proposition from the cooler, older girl you've been crushing on for months? Couldn't make it up if I tried.
