Franck, Liana (Passing for Human: A Graphic Memoir)

Well, this'll be short.

Not because it's a graphic memoir (which often takes less time because there's less to actually read versus a lot more to view). But because I only have one lingering impression: whining.

OK, actually a few lingering impressions: whining, overly navel-gazing, art-for-art's-sake (to me, being obtuse is not art). What was my overall impression? Just grow up already. This memoir felt like I did when I was 25. Why would you write a memoir at that age? Also, the art isn't stellar, and while the pacing and design of the pages is intriguing, overall it didn't engage me whatsoever.

At least it was over quickly.
