Oh, Eddie Campbell...even this early book, basically just a rambling account of Campbell and his buddies hanging out at the pub, is a hell of a piece of work. It must have been even more amazing in the '80s, when nobody else was even trying to do stuff like this. It's uneven, but there are transcendent moments and a lot of daringly poetic turns of phrase you just don't normally see in comic books.
