I enjoyed reading these little comics in alt weekly newspaper, so I read this at a very leisurely pace To fast and all the fable like qualities and tone blurs together A fun litlte read. Loved these stories. Some of these 1 page strips are fantastic Others are a bit cold and cruel and overly dependent on irony Comparisons with The Twilight Zone are inevitable, but TZ s appeal has much to do with its social milieu coming about as it did in the early nuclear age and a time of relative innocence in popular culture Mix the TZ narrative strategies, today, with our hypercynicism and social decadence, and often you just end up cutting the essential wonder aspect out of the equation.Still, as I say som Some of these 1 page strips are fantastic Others are a bit cold and cruel and overly dependent on irony Comparisons with The Twilight Zone are inevitable, but TZ s appeal has much to do with its social milieu coming about as it did in the early nuclear age and a time of relative innocence in popular culture Mix the TZ narrative strategies, today, with our hypercynicism and social decadence, and often you just end up cutting the essential wonder aspect out of the equation.Still, as I say some of these strips are fantastic, without question I became a fan of Lay s Story Minute strips in Salon back in the day and it was a pleasure reading this collection of them in book form Some of them hit home harder than others, but it s a wonderful book to dip in and out of. A delightful, whimsical, absolutely entertaining series of one page strips Very recommended, although your sense of humor may need to be slightly askew to really appreciate Lay s work. I used to read this in a paper somewhereand always really enjoyed it It s amazing how much story she can get into a few panels The copy I read has different cover art A collection of her weekly strips. This was very intriguing, the strips were thought provoking, and I enjoyed it very much My favorite was the tribute to Gusto, her cat.
