Fizzle is a fictional comic about Claire, a New Jersey transplant in California on the verge of transcending her listless life. Claire works retail at a tea shop where her boss expects more enthusiasm than Claire can muster, her stoner boyfriend, on the other hand wants Claire to spend less energy worrying about life. Claire wants something more, but isn’t sure what. A pot-induced joke and a taste for evocative fruit sparks an interest in Claire that could be her escape from her mundane life.
In this issue, Claire’s love for citrus grows thanks to a gift from her boyfriends’ grandfather. We learn about Claire’s family dynamics when her mother calls with some big news. But danger is brewing as Claire’s relationship with Andy becomes more unsteady, and co-worker, Jaime, seems more and more charming.
Whit introduces Clair’s parents through a memory, giving the entire narrative greater depth. Whit’s storytelling continues to keep us captivated and invested in Claire’s life!
