Recommended for: People who don't remember what happened two panels ago

David Boring is split into three acts.

I absolutely love the first one. David Boring is a male slut, but he doesn't know why, because he only appreciates one woman. After being shot one night, we worry that he may never see her again.

Act two changes gears significantly when David is stuck recovering on a remote island with people who believe the main land has been hit by a nuclear bomb. Yes, this act has nothing to do with the first act and it's not until the bizarro third act that you feel like Daniel Clowes is jizzing in your coffee (the joke's on him, I don't drink coffee).

The last act is literally about putting together a puzzle of images into a story. Who is David's father and why do I care anymore?

I liked David Boring better when he was a self-loathing pussy-pumper, which leads me to say that David Boring isn't an apt title. David Schizophrenia is more like it.

Sarah I bought this book about five or six years ago and had completely forgotten I ever read it until just now.
