Williams, J. Brendan – What I Did On My 2008 Summer Vacation
What I Did On My 2008 Summer Vacation
There are times when a title is all you need to sum up a book, and this is one of those times.Â This is a listing of what J. did from July 3rd to August 7th, all told with one giant panel per day.Â It’s one solid black page above one descriptive page, all the way through, with pithy little observances that often leave you more than a little confused (as they’re mostly without any kind of context).Â Oddly, this was a welcome break from the usual diary strips that nail everything down in exact detail.Â What does he mean, “I was caught between scylla & charybdis”? The picture doesn’t help (unless they’re two people), but that was early on in the book and it sucked me right in.Â It’s not all interesting, or even close to it, as 4 pages of strips about his move was a bit much.Â Still, not a bad entry into diary strips overall.Â Just on the off-chance that J. does requests, how about something a little meatier next time?Â $2
