Pretty good. I think the attempt to give the book a narrative arc and bill it as a graphic novel instead of a collection lead to some pretty boring expository comics.

Also, the joyful debauchery of the first two books had a pall of addiction hanging over it in this one. I don't begrudge Wertz her sobriety. I'm glad she pulled herself together. But watching someone drink panel after panel knowing they're going to become an alcoholic is a lot more difficult than watching the same thing and assuming they're going to eventually learn their limit.

But otherwise it was as good as the first two.
