I was feeling really jerky and less-emo-than-thou about Jeff Brown when I got to the Small Press Expo last weekend, and then I went to his Q+A and he was pretty great and talked about how he drew everything straight into little notebooks and I was like shoot I gotta stop with my disillusion with him. So I turned right around, went back upstairs, and bought his book. I appreciate his style a lot and it is in full force in this book. The storytelling is fairly meandering and I didn't really see the connecting threads, not that there were necessarily supposed to be any.

The story about becoming a dad (which I sort of bought the book for, secret) was kind of disjointedly told and I'm not sure if I liked that a lot. I think I want to read the cat book, and I started Funny Misshapen Body which is really good in that it gives more of a much needed, not-girl-related backstory to Brown.

Yep. I'll definitely keep up with the dude, he's cool.
