Off-Beat Take on Contemporary Life

Hilary Price displays her talent for spinning highly amusing moments from such commonplace events as a young daughter's visit to her father's work place. Price begins each strip with her distinctive title panel that sets the stage and employs a revolving cast of anonymous characters to create visually, and verbally clever, often witty observations on contemporary life. Her innovative comic succeeds within the mainstream but also appeals to those who favor off-beat humor.
