I'm really interested in the trajectory (for lack of a less pretentious word) of Jeffrey Brown's career. I think it's pretty admirable that Brown isn't looking to play the same note over and over again with his autobio comic strips and I was excited for a non-relationship dip into the author's life.

While I enjoyed the book on the whole, I have to say that I found the jacket copy to be a little misleading. I didn't really see the way that the stories connected. As a collection of individual stories yes, Little Things works well... but the copy almost promises an interconnectedness that just isn't there.

I think there are some fine comic stories here; certainly the hiking expedition is a great example of the artist stretching himself to great Little Things is a very enjoyable mixed bag.

I'd be really excited to see some more stories focusing on Brown's new role as a father.
