Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0689806221, Paperback)Admit it: you'd rather read a good comic book than do your homework. Well, there are quite a few artists who couldn't have survived their own adolescent years without creating comix (and, yes, that's comix with an "x" for grit and no soft-focus on teenage torture). In Mind Riot, Karen Hirsch gathers a collection of brilliant, biting strips that explore teen angst in graphic detail. What's a "mind riot" you ask? "A condition of panic, when the stressed-out brain short-circuits," writes the editor. Sound familiar? The stories in here will be so familiar to you that you will weep, drool, scream, and fall apart laughing.
