Not My Small Diary No. 20 – The Power of Music https://www.etsy.com/listing/788277285/not-my-small-diary-20-the-power-of-music is a 136-page, digest size, black and white, perfect bound comics anthology edited by Delaine Derry Green. Cover by Ben Snakepit.
Not My Small Diary is always such a pleasure to read and this issue is even more enjoyable than usual because it’s about The Power of Music! As a music lover myself, I’m always interested to learn how others are moved by the tunes. Specific songs, live performances, or just artists that somehow connect, the power music has on so many people is just incredible. Within these pages Delaine Derry Green collects a wide range of individual musical experiences from over 50 artists and writers and shares their stories as told by their own hands! The finished work is a rhythmic composition of beautiful styles spanning the breadth between the roughness of old-school underground to the polished draftsmanship of commercial work! The personal experiences shared through these stories really hit home for me. Music has been such a big and important part of my life it’s easy to relate to the various tales. Even my mother-in-law’s friend (and terrific singer in my opinion), Slim Whitman, gets a mention in this comic! The variety of stories and experiences couldn’t be any better!
