it was ok

Praying Craig Thompson doesn’t read this - I feel like he has an hourly Google alert on his name despite his own better judgment - but I want this guy to shut up so much. I realise self-centeredness is the nature of his disease but Craig Thompson’s publishers let him get way too caught up in being Craig Thompson. Beautiful drawings but his constant nimrod editorialising about the “culture” around him was just so fucked. He seems to have this approach to non-American-Midwest places that recalls the guy at the party who laughs WAY too hard when Sikhs make jokes about tans. Dude also is a secret (not-so-secret?) misogynist, of the “why won’t those bitches sleep with me I’m such a nice guy” school. Sorry, I know this was rude. Whatever, I spent like an hour of my life on this terrible travelogue!
