Tired of re-watching David Lynch? This is one of the most perplexing and stomach churning odysseys ever written, very different in vein to anything Clowes wrote later. There are no pretentious hipster girls or zit covered creeps. This is the best thing Clowes ever did and will do, a raw masterpiece coming from the heart. This 140-some paged volume evokes the experience of being trapped in a fever dream, confused and disgusted. Worth every reading and rereading.
