    Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel (DesEsseintes)
    DesEsseintes: Découverte de la sexualité et sortie de l'enfance me semblent être au coeur de ces deux belles oeuvres, aussi intéressantes l'une que l'autre.

I read "The Summer of Love" straight after the disturbing autobiographical "Daddy's Girl" by the same author, which features the same characters when they were younger. Whereas "Daddy's Girl" depicts the tragic abuse Lily had to suffer on the hands of her father, none of it is present in "The Summer of Love", which concentrates on the more classic foes of coming of age in suburban America. Sadly, it is also a road much traveled in contemporary graphic fiction, and Debbie Drechsler's slightly caricatural style does not match the finesse of other authors such as Craig Thomson or Alison Bechdel. What's more, the brownish-greenish color scheme used here is reminiscent of those blue-red 3D images when read without the appropriate colored glasses and are tiresome in the long run. ( )

Kind of like Lynda Barry's work, but not as good.
