Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from painfully sincere and beautiful I read this book when it first came out and was enthralled. I've since owned it about 7 times because everyone I lend it to "loses" it. It's the authors autobiography about growing up in a bible belt community, wrestling with his faith and desire to be an artist, his first love, and childhood demons. The artwork is fantastic and will interest even those that can't stand comics. The imagery and symbolism is superb. It will make you laugh and cry. It has a sound track. It's amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just LOVE his art! Thompson is great! When you finish reading this book, you'll hunt for his next, Carnet de voyage. His art is great and the entertaining, it`s a great change from the superhero comic book.
