Chelsea's depiction of himself as both a lovesick romantic and a bit of a cad, plus a glorious absence of the cloying self-pity that can come with the autobio territory, made David Chelsea in Love one of the more interesting autobiographical graphic novels I've read. His somewhat hyperspecific focus on the words/actions of his friends and lovers never devolved into generalizations about the world at large (another plus)—or if they did, I was too enamored with the story to notice. I especially enjoyed his repeated mouthing off at the most emotionally inappropriate times. Always a comfort to know I'm not alone in that...
