One! Hundred! Demons!
Why this book?
A funny yet sensitive memoir anthology telling the story of author Lynda Barry's young life, growing up in the turbulent 1960s. The artwork is vibrant and unique, featuring everything from sequined collages to ghostly sumi ink sketches. The book served as both a creative and therapeutic outlet for the author, as she states in the introduction, and this definitely comes across through her many coming-of-age tales within the volume. One of the first alternative comics I was ever exposed to. This book deals with themes of drugs and sex, just to mention.
