Read full description of the books:
Over the summer I randomly found this one in a local used bookshop. I found the old, newspaper-style comic to be enticing. It brought back from pretty fond memories of reading the comics with my dad each Sunday. Unfortunately, my happy feelings towards this graphic novel ended there. I'll start by stating that Eliopoulos is a pretty good artist. I really enjoyed the illustrations and appreciated that he was willing to tackle some tough issues.
The biggest turn-off for me was how closed minded and ignorant the topics were handled, especially for something published in 1999. The graphic novel mostly revolves around two mid-twenty guys who are looking for love. They are constantly at bars and singles mixers. The first thing that caught my attention was when the main character refers to two women as "dykes: when they turn down his offer of basically a one night stand. The misogynistic-ness of the main characters only goes downhill from there. It is really rather appalling how frequent to the degree to which the author tears women down in this.
If I believed in burning books, that is what I would do with this one. Alas, I will be selling it back to the used bookstore. Maybe someone else will enjoy this.
1/5 (though if it were possible I would give it 1/2 a star - at least the illustrations were good).
