really liked it

Squirrel!!

so... now that that's out of the way... This is a collection of graphic short stories... or comic short stories... not actually graphic in the 'graphic violence' sense, or comic in the 'ha ha' sense, but, ya know... like graphic novels/comic books... there, that's out of the way... sequential art! hurrah!

little snippets of life, often not fully resolved out into a definitive end, as is true of actual snippets of lives. The art I would place in the newspaper comics section realm. it doesn't wow me, but it serves its purpose narratively to good effect. The writing is reflective and honest. The personal stories are affecting, but I think I was most drawn in by the Alexander Hamilton bio-comic.
