Residents in gentrifying areas will get units in luxury buildings. Activists say that won’t stop the cost of living from pushing them out.
Jews in Kiev say the protests were about democracy; others in Odessa believe the Maidan was full of Nazis. Now what?

Vanessa Davis' most recent book, Make Me a Woman, includes many comic strips first published in Tablet Magazine. Her first collection of diary comics, Spaniel Rage, was published in 2005.
A haftorah of miracles and memory
These “cartoons” appear to be for teens. No comment.
If by “made for teens” you mean awesome and fun to read, then yes I agree.
This was adorable. I enjoyed
it and I’m a “senior” citizen.
I will pass it on to friends and family!
I wish you love and latkes.
It’s funny how ‘Rivka’ made commented and then stated she allegedly had ‘No comment’ to make.
Who needs to hear from jerks like you?
Oh and might I add that your “comment” appeared to be extremely juvenile.
Loving your work as always, Vanessa.
Happy Holiday’s Y’all!!
this “comic strip” always makes me feel cozy!
Vanessa you have such talent and a kind of humor, love, and conscience that we need more of in this old world. Thanks for caring AND for sharing!!
ugh. seriously, why should anyone care about any of this vain, vapid nonsense?
Always look forward to Vanessa’s monthly offering!
Great, funny, talent = fun to read!
Vanessa’s work always makes me smile and marvel at her art style. I don’t find her work juvenile, I find it honest. Vanessa isn’t afraid to be real as an artist and a person. Been a fan of her work for years, and I’m so happy that more people can see what a wonderful creative person she truly is. Thank you Table magazine for publishing her work and thank you Vanessa for your contribution to creativity.
Vanessa is simply one of the best cartoonists in the world!
This 51 year old LOVES Vanessa’s musings……! Sje evn shares them with her 14 year old daughter <3 <3 <3
I don’t get the title. Other than that it was pretty good.
Your comic strips remind me so much of Ernie Pook’s Comeek, which I loved and miss reading. Thanks for standing alongside Lynda Barry with your thoughtful and insightful comics. So refreshing!!
Vanessa’s work is always great to read because she is so funny and insightful. One of my favorite sections of Tablet. Happy Chanukah!
I LOVE this!
Your work is wonderful Vanessa.
So many beautiful things in this comic. Not just the illustration, but the ideas being communicated. Traveling, and learning, and independence, and acceptance and taking things seriously but having a good sense of humor about it too. Hopefully, trends will lead to more do-it-yourselfing (without too much of the do-it-yourself aesthetic, if you know what I mean).
i loved it!
i LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE vanessa’s work. her earlier strips — particularly those on her relationship with her mom and on weight/body image — really resonated with me, and so does this. fashion is serious! throughout history people have adorned themselves. fashion is semiotics — you can “opt out,” but every time you get dressed you’re still sending messages about how you see yourself and what your values are. i think learning to separate fashion/style from commercialism is a fascinating subject. and there is MY comment, o no-comment lady.
The Holy Trinity? Hold it, gal pal. We don’t trash anything holy about your Jewish religion, so please don’t step on ours.
I thought this cartoon was very nice. I would like to read more of them!
Your cartoons are awesome as always…Look forward to seeing more of them…
