One Hundred Demons - Lynda Barry ONE HUNDRED DEMONS!!!!!!!


Some of the demons are things she can't remember. Other times, they're things that won't go away.


In a mixture of collage and totally uniquely styled comics, Lynda Barry tells some of the stories that have shaped her life in a relatable, funny, original, and engaging way. And I just love the way the book is shaped, easy to hold in your hands while feeling very substantial, too. She belongs to the small selection of comics and graphic novelists who I plan to read exhaustively; Alan Moore, Alison Bechdel, Calvin and Hobbes, and Kate Beaton are there, too.
