I read this round our friends' place in Brussels. Honestly, I think enough has been written about it already, so I'll try to keep this brief.

Overall, I don't think that overall this comic works - it doesn't seem to know what it wants to be: confessional, polemic, manifesto, or even just story. In the end it settles for my least favourite sort of comics autobio - lacking in introspection, structure, awareness. Even humour. It's main virtue is that it is, I suppose, honest. Unfortunately, that leads to the obsessive documenting of (all?) the prostitutes he has met, which is obsessive, as well as a little unsettling. The space devoted to them is all the more infuriating as he fails to engage with the more interesting questions about his life choices (particularly toward the end of book).

To be honest, there are many grounds on which to challenge this book, but in the end, any comic that has, as this does, tens of pages of (prose) appendices, probably doesn't manage to achieve what it set out to. And that is strongly indicative of why I don't think this is a good comic.

A fascinating read. I had mostly known only of Riel in name, and a few details of his life, but not really knew much beyond that. I was pleasently surprised and intrigued by how dramatic the events were. It really opened up many details of the life of this well known Canadian and those Canadians around him. It portrayed well the tension that existed at that time between the French and the English, the Natives and those coming into the new country, the Catholics and the Protestants, and how Riel represented so many of those characteristics which were not what those in power in Ottawa were. Also fascinating was the way that war is portrayed as really anticlimactic and executed by those who really don't know what they are doing. A good read that makes me want to research more into Riel's life.… (mais)

Definitely an uncommon topic. The rendition is real and it seems the author's coldness is real, too. Doesn't say anything positive about human relationships. PS: there are too many appendices.

This is an unusual book-a memoir of being a buyer of services from sex workers. We follow Chester from he enters the world of explicit selling and buying of sex and in his interactions with (anonymized) sex workers. Throughout, Chester is arguing with his friends about the value of romantic love and the rightness of the way he has chosen and his distancing himself from romantic love. Crucially, he also give the sex workers a voice. Their voice is of course filtered through the author, but it is frequently a voice that is not heard at all. After all his complaining and misgivings about monogamous love, Chester paradoxically ends up in a steady, monogamous relationship with one sex worker.… (mais)
