There's some really Hilarious moments in here.... Plus Stein's drawing style is pretty awesome. Definitely enjoyed this one and looking forward to checking out vol 2!

Great book. Surrealy whimsical, but always grounded in well depicted characters, with real life concerns. And very funny with it. I can imagine a lot of people not really getting it, but I think those that do will really love it.

Disclaimer: Leslie's a friend of mine, I'm pleased to say.

Also! Difficult to write this review as Goodreads is sticking a socking great advert on top of the form.

Not exactly my cup of tea and yet amusing and very true to life. The main character is somebody I would've been great friends with in college and yet no graphic novel really fills that void. That leaves me in a strange spot trying to relate to the stories. Seriously, she's a college roommate of mine and I'd much rather be in touch with who she is today.

I love that she talks to a guitar named Marshmallow. The stories would build and build until something seemed like something was going to happen and then the storyline would end.

Surreal and psychedelic comic featuring lots of anthropomorphic objects, but the stories are somehow mostly autobiographical. Lots of alcohol fueled mayhem and hilarity within.

A strange read to be sure. It seemed to be quasi-autobiographical mashed together with a whole lot of fantasy. The ratio may be like 1:10
A good piece at any rate.
