Worth a read, but I don't recommend reading it on the bus back to New York from Boston where the sororityish girl next to you can read over your shoulder and think you're a weirdo at times. You might need some privacy for some of the pervier scenes. I still feel a little weird about butts right now.

Overall, I think it was a good idea that didn't come through the whole way--for me. Something missing in the execution. Also sometimes I'm just not that good at reading things that are this uncomfortable. So I can say it's worth reading, definitely, but I don't think this was a good starting point for me with Clowes.

Mbarra so true about the scenes! I was reading this on the subway commuting to work during rush hour haha.

Brian I was reading this in a college library setting, holding it up and not all the open to read it, was hoping no one else had an angle to see anything.

Tallulah I agree with this completely!!
