my brain hurts volume two by Liz Baillie

(microcosm) While it is little to brag about to say you make the film KIDS seem as fake as Beverly Hills boobs, this comic about the trials of troubled teen in New York negotiating relationships, mosh pits, and the legal system certainly puts Larry Clark's fantasy to shame. A really riveting narrative presentation and a drawing style that is neither too slick for a zine/d.i.y. presentation nor too rough around the edges to make a lengthy read difficult on the eyes, combine to make this impressive. If you to deal with a chaste Catholic lesbian, a coma, a contrite recovering homophobe, and a paddy wagon-bound condom water balloon your brain would hurt too!
