I really enjoyed Emi's artwork in the first volume of Emitown, but hated the lack of narrative arc and the disjointed nature of the sketch diary. I also found that her cryptic references to relationships got really old - if you are going to subtitle of your book "a sketch diary," I expect more revelations. This time around, different events from her life including the publication of the first Emitown and a relationship (we finally get to meet a guy!) brings the daily sketches to life and allows ...more

One of the things that I’ve really enjoyed about the webcomics world is that it’s given rise to a great number of young artists, many of whom write autobiographical comics. These comic artists tend to be primarily young writers and artists, and webcomics allow them a chance to share the highlight of their day or those split-second funny moments with the rest of the world. And even more interesting to me is that some of the big name publishers, such as Image, are starting to pay attention to ...more
This is the second volume of Emi Lenox's autobiographical sketch diary. It is even better than the first one. Her talent, kindness, and genuine care for her friends, family, and the world around her shine through every page. She is humble and funny, quirky and smart, it is rare to find someone capture so successfully what growing up and becoming an independent adult feels like, with all its setbacks and insecurities, as it develops. It is amazing to me that she can do this with just a few words ...more

I'm gonna sound like a supertwerp here, but uhhh why is Emi Lenox a big deal? She's great and all, and a pretty good illustrator, but her shy cuteness and "ooh boys" attitude wears on me (pot kettle black here maybe?! BLAH.) -- like, is there not plenty of this out there? Or is she a trailmaker for other lady cartoonists? Or...what? While I was not in love with her personality, which I feel like one has to be to do really connect with a diary comic, I nonetheless appreciated her skill as an ...more

Emitown by Emi Lenox is a bio-comic that deals with her life. The first volume, which I read last year, was personal, entertaining and really fun, and I enjoyed it a lot, so I picked up the second volume recently and dove right into it. This second volume ups the personal side of things while maintaining the charm that made the first one so relatable and so good. I really love the way Emi writes and her observations. Her struggles and her dreams make this something that anyone can relate to, ...more

Volume 2 of Emitown, Emi Lenox's page-a-day autobio comic, goes into great and heart-wrenching depth about what it's like to fall in and out of love, and how the relationship touches every part of our lives. She also does quite a lot of interactions with friends, how to deal with job loss, and what fun living in Portland can be.

I felt like I was good friends with Emi Lenox by the time I finished reading the second volume. The art is amazing and her story is easy to emphasize with and she's a very inspiring comic artist. I hope the new year brings a third volume!

3 stars for me but the book might have resonated more if I was younger, or still navigating relationships, or an artist, or lived in Portland. Not a bad book but I'm a little outside the target demographic.

I enjoyed these strips. I wish I'd read them when they were going up daily online, as they run together a little bit when read all at once. But I am looking forward to Lenox's future projects. She is a very talented cartoonist.

Portland comics memoirist; I've also read volume 1. this one focuses a bit more on a tough relationship and dealing with the aftermath in a day-to-day fashion.
