Genre Dive: Non-Fiction (Peeking In Someone Else’s Journal)

This week’s roundup is non-fiction! I realize this would include more than just diary comics, however that’s what I found in my search, so please enjoy the work of these creators!

The Devil’s Panties by Jennie Breeden
“The Devil’s Panties is a daily comic strip which doubles as my not-so-secret, mostly-true diary.”

Boumeries by Boum
“Boumeries is mostly about [Boum’s] life sharing a flat with her programming partner Pierre-Luc and their daughters Margot and Annette, working at home, juggling with everyday chores and drawing, and having absurd dreams in the meantime.”
