Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary - 25th May 2017

Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary
by Justin Green (new deluxe 2009 edition)

I know nothing at all about this book but its appearance is very impressive and it seems as if it could be interesting. I shall have to cheat by quoting extensively from the introduction written by Art Spiegelman. 

He bills it as a comic book turned into an intimate, secular confession booth! He says Justin Green has done for confessional autobiographical comics what the Bronte sisters did for Gothic romance and what Tolkien did for sword-and-sorcery. Spiegelman credits him with inventing a new genre.

I don't know how many confessional autobiographical comics you've read but if you're already a fan, you could read this one for comparison purposes; if you're like me and have never heard of the genre, you could give it a read for the purpose of widening your horizons.

Art Spiegelman does mention that the art work and the content may take some getting used to (but surely nothing worth its weight comes without effort).
