Somnambulist #25 - The P.I. Story - What It's Really Like to Be a Private Investigator

Why would Bitch Media call this the best Somnambulist issue ever? Why would comic artist Jason Martin of Driftwood City fame call this a "tense, richly-layered story"? Why are you so curious about this issue’s acclaim? Instead, maybe you should be asking, What could ever go wrong if a writer became a private investigator—or maybe, what could ever go right? What does it mean to work a job that cuts bone-deep into your own existence? What if it gives you stress-diarrhea? You ever thought about that, buddy? Why are you asking so many questions about this issue, when all the answers are inside of it? Have you ever investigated anything? Have you ever investigated a god damn thing in your life? What do you do, just sit around, drooling at the walls all day? What's gotten into you lately? 34 pages. .

This is what Bitch Media had to say about it : "

The PI Story by Martha Grover {Somnambulist}

The PI Story is actually a zine by Martha Grover, author of the essay collection One More for the People.Grover has been putting out the zine Somnambulist for 12 years, and her latest is one of her best. A story thick and thorough, it recounts her recent stint as a private investigator. Instead of mystery, intrigue, and trench coats, it turns out the life of a modern PI is much more insidious. Woven in is her own dealing with Cushing’s disease, and the story that unravels ultimately question our messed-up health insurance system, how people with disabilities must "prove" their illness, and the many contradictions she faced as a person with a chronic illness questioning strangers about their work-related injuries. Peppered throughout is Grover's natural wit and lots of laugh-out-loud moments. You won’t be able to put it down once you start."
