Recommended to Jaina Bee by: Yoram
Recommended for: comix junkies, feminists, voyeurs, Boomers
Read in July, 2008

It's big, bold, and fancy, like the author. It's also radically honest, insanely hyperbolic, and dripping with obnoxious, self-congratulatory/-loathing Boomerisms.

It's bad enough to hear someone born in the fifties bragging about all the free love and cultural upheaval they enjoyed, but to follow it with criticism of the following generation's apathy is more blind selfishness than I can stand.

That vented, I must confess that I played a lot of hooky to spend time with this juicy chunk of graphic memoir. I have much more respect and appreciation for her body of work. And as someone who has been drawing autobiographical comics since I was a kid, I feel I owe her some props.
