An adorable little self-reflective adventure.

"We Can Fix It" is a tongue-in-cheek play on the comic memoir genre, which adds an author-from-the-future that mixes things up. Plenty of slapstick moments from Fink's life are captured by her illustrations as we hop and skip through the various years of the author's childhood, adolescence and adulthood.

While Fink's illustrations carry their own brand of fun, the frivolity of the writing got in the way of my reading experience; the story jumps quickly through time (or memory) in a somewhat haphazard fashion. As such, while "We Can Fix It" is a spirited play on the often-overused comic memoir genre, it is still confined by it being a memoir about yet another comics artist. ( )

What the heck wouldn’t I try if I had a time machine? As for going back and fixing past mistakes or trying to teach myself a thing or two – I really don’t know. Heck, I doubt I’d WANT to go back and witness all that madness again and be forced to watch it! *shivers* At first silly and this little graphic novel buds into what ends up being a very interesting piece about learning about yourself and maybe even accepting that person. This contains sexual content of the not explicit kind. Those that enjoy a good chuckle or two here and there with the not too naughty comics will probably get a few smirks out of this. Jess Fink does a good job of poking fun at herself without taking anything too seriously and yet still managing to put across a slightly serious message beneath the humor.

Art – 3.5 stars – Fun, simple comic strip style art
Story- 4 stars
Overall – 4 stars – Funny, introspective and so much more enjoyable than you’d think at first glane! ( )

"What would you do if you had a time machine? Bet on sporting events? Assassinate all the evildoers of history? Or maybe try to fix all the mistakes and regrets that have haunted you all these years? Join Jess as she travels back in time to share her wisdom with her naive younger self, stand up to bullies who terrorized her child self, and teach her horny teenage self a thing or two. What begins as a raunchy adventure in teen wish fulfillment grows into a thoughtful story about memory, regret, and growing up. One time machine, one frustrated girl, one sexy futuristic jumpsuit-- infinite possibilities" -- from publisher's web site.… (more)
