I disagree heartily with most of what the previous reviewer said. Sure, if you're looking for long stories with a coherent narrative sweep, then look elsewhere. But there is some fantastic humour here, a lot of personal insight into Clowes' own mentality & opinions, and some wonderfully warped creations, like the Happy Fisherman and Playful Obsession. It's very reminiscent of Robert Crumb's cartoons - Clowes just getting all his feverish ideas on paper, now matter how nonsensical, provocative or confessional. I would recommend this to anybody with a surreal sense of humour or an interest in alternative comics.
