This is volume 1 of (so far) 3 volumes of the on-going zine "In All That Brown the Sun Went Down" created by artist Christina Kelly of Brooklyn, NY. The cover of each zine is hand printed by the artist.
Christina describes her zines as:
This comic/zine is about the life and loves of Margaret Wise Brown. She was the author of many classic children's books including Goodnight Moon (1947) and The Runaway Bunny (1942). She was part of an innovative moment in children's literature that worked to capture the direct language and everyday experience of childhood.
The comic is loosely based on Brown's fascinating life. It's framed around imagined sessions with her real-life Freudian analyst, Dr. Robert Bak. With Dr. Bak she examines the tempestuous 10-year love affair with a woman twice her age, her frustration at not being to write successfully for adults, and the animosity she endures from the powerful children's book librarian at the NYPL.
All the characters in the comic are hand drawn as rabbits, appearing at the same time to be both childlike and grown up, symbolizing the ways childhood shapes adult relationships.
