it was ok
Read in October, 2008

This was my second birthday-present-to-myself comic. It's also of the queer coming of age genre, but it's autobigraphical and much more complicated. In the beginning I quickly figured out that the narrator went to some high school where it was really hip to be a lesbian which is cool, but then she just seemed to always be either getting drunk and hooking up (or trying to hook up) and frenetically studying biology and math and I just didn't get it. But I plugged through it and there are some human moments in there, mostly when she goes through the process of slowly realizing that her girlfriend is losing interest in her... I really felt her teenaged pain. The other thing I liked was the way the dream sequences are drawn super-realistically, unlike the rest of the comic, and also how when people were drunk their words came out all wiggly.
