Schrag, Ariel – Likewise #1


Likewise #1

It’s sure obvious to me that I’ve missed some time in this epic. For those of you who don’t know, Ariel has been doing a comic story of her high school experience, detailing pretty much everything from Grade 9 to 12, with Likewise being the start of her senior year. The book is going to be something like 380 pages long, so there’s obviously a lot to be told. One of the things I love about this is the way she tells absolutely everything. There’s a scene of probably four or five pages just about Ariel and some of her friends trying to define the “It” that certain people have that makes them cool. A silly, meandering conversation, sure, but it’s real, and that’s what makes this book so priceless. She shows her deepest fears and feelings, seemingly without a care in the world or regard for the consequences. I’d say to wait until this is finished and read this all as one epic, but I think it might be a better idea to read some of the earlier years and keep up with this as it comes out, every six months or so. I feel stupid putting a warning up at all but she is incredibly graphic about everything, so if you’re the squeamish type you should really loosen up and take a look at this book. Autobiography at its finest. Sure, there are better writers and sure, there are better artists, but this is just pure and real. Read it! Here’s some contact info if you want to order the book: Ariel Schrag 5231 Lerner Hall New York, NY 10027-8351. Here’s her e-mail address too…
