Williams, Tom – Misa By
Who likes auto-bio? Anybody who reads this page knows that I do, especially when it’s done well, and this one is done extremely well. It’s told as a letter to an old girlfriend about yet another girlfriend. Confused? Don’t worry, it’s pretty simple. He realizes pretty early on that the two of them don’t have much in common and he confesses to never really knowing what she’s thinking, but sticks with the relationship after graduation basically out of a lack of anything better to do. It’s always been a bit unbelievable to me that somebody could just stay in a relationship when they knew that it wasn’t the right thing for them, but I’ve seen it happen too many times to believe that it’s just fictional. Anyway, this book is well worth a look. He also has a regular series (although this book is from 2001 so that might not still be true) called Crash Comics, which I’m going to be digging into in a week or so, I’d guess.
