really liked it
bookshelves: dark, graphic, life, ya

5+ stars for the unique, stunning art; 3 stars at best for the writing. I'm guessing the language seems lyrically lacking because it's been translated, but it's a sketchy attempt at telling a story that is hard to follow. Still, perhaps that was the intent, since he's trying to capture the mood of an angsty, suicidal teenager drifting through life. Regardless, this one is worth reading just for the pictures. I keep finding myself distractedly staring at them instead of writing this review.
