Awesome use of the autobiographical format. Dawson tells the story of his life as seen through the filter of Queen songs. Lots of cool ruminations on memory and influence. The illustration style is mostly good, although occasionally it bugged me how disproportionately huge the author's head was in contrast to the bodies of the rest of his family. Cool that he's friend with Alex Robinson (one of my favorite graphic novelists). I'm a bit too young to be a Queen fan, and I'll bet this would be even cooler if I shared Dawson's generational references.

Tempting to booktalk to high school, but probably better for 30somethings.
