it was amazing

This book is truly original. Fun Home may have more plot, but AYMM's seamless comic book melding of personal artifacts, introspection, and other writer's works is fascinating from beginning to end. Page 272, when Bechdel does away with black ink lines, using only wash to express the snowstorm physical environment, as well as her character's state of mind, as well as the "unthinkable anxieties of the newborn," is one of the most beautiful pages of comics I have ever read.
