After every night of decadent darkness shines the harsh light of day, and similarly after exploring flights of fancy does an author circle around to instead seek the sobering truth. And thus comes the latest anthology from St. Louis-based comics collective Ink and Drink Comics: SOBER, a collection of nineteen nonfiction narratives ranging from the autobiographical to the historical to the sociopolitical, and everything in between. The stories herein will have you cheer Civil War soldiers to victory and jeer perverted politicians, cringe at the pangs of teenage romance and smile at the mundanities of parenthood, get into the heads of punk rockers and protestors, and even ponder the very nature of nonfiction itself.
