The misadventures of two queer kids in high school. Because of the young age of the duo (one is thirteen) and their activities (drinking, sex and punk shows) it sometimes feels like a more-wholesome "Kids." But while it has a 90's vibe and the kids are pretty bratty, they're a lot less amoral and apathetic than the kids in... "Kids," so it's not at all a depressing universe. The writing is sometimes bombastic and melodramatic, but punk high school kids usually are bombastic and melodramatic, so no harm there. I think the artwork is very good, with no detail spared from store signs, show posters or gross people in the background. Plus there is an activity section in the back, which I thought was a fun idea. I'd probably read volume 2 if I ever came across it.
