Read in January, 2003

graphic sex with little in the way of storyline that couldn't have been said in 4 or 5 pages...but this IS the "Eros" imprint of Fantagraphics after all so sex is the raison d'etre.

more disturbing than everything and everyone covered in come is gilbert adding more and more improbable and superfluous layers (both before and after birdland was published) to long-standing characters. for example, although fritz and petra are in the love & rockets/palomar storyline, the birdland story arc is far enough removed that they may as well be different characters. all the extra baggage cheapens the accomplished palomar stories.
