At The Catapult, writer/artist Shing Yin Khor has an incredibly beautiful illustrated essay about her relationship with peaches and depression — connecting both things back to their own Chinese heritage, and to the fruit's relationship with Confederate white supremacy in America. Khor takes a touching personal narrative and deftly weaves it through and around hundreds of years of colonialism and racism in a way that's beautiful, resonant, and thought-provoking.
I came away from this short comic wondering "What the hell did I just read?" as I wiped a tear from my own eye and let the melancholy settle on my soul. That's honestly best way I can describe this, other than to say "Read it right now."
