Read in June, 2009

Love the art. Love the lettering. Love the self-doubting voice of misanthropy. As a wrestler (high-school, not professional) friend once remarked, in reference to my misguided love of the motion picture "Almost Famous," "You liking this is like me watching a wrestling movie: I'd HAVE to like it." (I was a wannabe rock critic, then.)

Anyhows, this: Lotsa funny stuff, with no big (or muted) emotional moments in sight. Look to "Ghost World" for that; this one's all about the um er "yuks" and yes I'd read more.
