Delaine’s “Not My Small Diary” (aka NMSD) is one of the earliest minicomic zines I used to trade with when I was first getting into doing this stuff. Since then it’s become quite a sweet little indie publication. Each issue involves autobiographical stories from cartoonists centering around different themes. This one is “pets” and I have a comic in it about how our cats and rats interact with each other, something people often ask me about. “How do the cats and rats get along?”
Yep. This is exactly what it’s like.
