From Somewhere Out There:
panel 1: "I know that the perfect girl for me is out there somewhere."
panel 2: She's smart and funny and beautiful..."
Panet 3: Right now she's probaby out there listening to YoLaTengo and reading comics..."

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA - obviously it doesn't have the same effect with out the drawings and there are 8 more panels to it but that panel is where I laughed so much that I felt compelled to grab the person next to me (Sarah - big surprise) and make her read it too.

took a break on reading World war Z, and grab a copy of minisulk that i bought last week...This book is a series of comic strips that doesn't have a linear story line. just a snippets of Jeffrey brown's life.what struck is its candid potrayal of small moments of his life and his dabble of his earlier works. I recommend this to people who wants to take a break on reading serious and long book stuff.

Brown does a wonderful job of portraying awkward moments and hidden frustrations. I was first introduced to his work when a friend recommended "Clumsy" to me. Like "Clumsy" it is raw in its portrayal though lacking in as much of a singular focus. Still, there is no denying his ability to capture slice of life moments so truthfully that we can't help but relate.

Very good. Miniature Sulk is funny stuff. If you have a good sense of humor, and by good I mean if you share a sense of humor with me (which, if you are reading this odds are you do) then you will like this.

Cute as hell. Great silly one-panels toward the back.

Jeffrey Brown tipico: piccoli, piccolissimi lampi di vita, dall'infanzia all'età adulta, conditi con un po' di immaginazione.

Not sure why, but this collection simply wasn't as engaging as some of his other work.

lots of very funny individual blips. They are mostly funny because they really don't deal with Brown's relationships at all - which keeps it aloof and un-whiny.
