bookshelves: comics, self-obsessed
Read from February 04 to May 01, 2012

I found my copy of this book hidden in the back shelves of a discount bookstore in Amish country in PA. There may be a lesson there in not making your entry into someone's work based on happenstance.

I can't say that I was particularly impressed by any aspect of the book. The cartoons were okay, but not much more than doodles (the artwork in her comics seems to be superior) and on some days less than that--nothing more than squiggles around a few words. (Also, is there a reason that she consistently draws herself with prominent nipples? Do they only sell sheer tops in Canada?) As far as content goes, there doesn't seem to be any justification for chronicling this year of her life. It's not as if nothing at all happens to her, but nothing remarkable, nor does she give the events any sort of meaningful perspective. The backdrop of the US conflict with Iraq doesn't even lend itself to anything more than negative grumbling about Americans.
