    One thought on “It's So Magic”

    1. i love lynda barry so much, she is one of my heroes. not only is she a kickass story teller and fantastic artist, but she also has the ability to show you how much people suck and then show you that you (along with her characters) can not only keep your head up in the midst of that but also stay completely 100% still in love with life. sometimes because of how rough life is. and sometimes because it is, like this book, so magic!

    2. I want to say that "This is my absolute favorite" Lynda Barry comic collection - but they all are my favorites. So, it's true.

    3. I've always loved Lynda Barry, and this particular book contains the storylines that first hooked me on reading her weekly comic strip in the alternative free newspaper you can find in most cities. So poignant, and moving, and very true at their core, these stories tell it like it was to be a teen growing up in the 70's. Her ability to fully flesh out a character in just a few black and white panels is pretty darned impressive.

    4. The last page of this book completely breaks my heart. After everything, Maybonne still believes in magic. I think that has to do a lot with having such an amazing funk soul sister like Marlys. I have to find my way back to this kind of magic.

    5. This is a re-read. Just to get me back in the groove. I loved Lynda Barry & haven't thought of her for years. A comment on youtube (Peterlikesbooks) reminded me of her glory & my library had a bunch of books.So I'm binge reading. Yay!

    6. I wish I owned a copy of this book, but I would never sell/swap if I did! My favorite Lynda Barry, and gosh, I really like them all.

    7. Hmmm, I'll get right on getting us a picture of this book. Definate shame to have no picture of the front of a book of comics.
