Read in February, 2011

I read this over the previous school year during my AE: Graphic Novel class and I will say that at first glance, I thought, "What the fuck am I reading?"

But the more I got into the story (with no chronology and no page #'s I might add), the more I came to enjoy what was going on. To put it flatly, there is a bug that changes how a person looks. The two main characters catch it, and it's basically acing social standings and struggling with life with "the bug".

I don't enjoy Burns' harsh contrast style and weird expressions and creepy eyes, but I DO recommend that you pick it up if you want to read something original and completely, utterly bizarre. Fair warning, you may not get a thing the first time around.
