Brown, Julian – Power Ballad #2
Power Ballad #2
Well, there are the comics that tell a little bit about the creator, and then there are the comics where you get the impression that nothing is too personal. This book is one of those latter cases. It always makes for a fascinating read when the creator just wants to tell things the way they really happened without regard for how anybody ends up looking when it’s all said and done, and that’s what makes this such a unique book. The art looks a tiny bit rushed and sloppy at times, but there’s so much raw emotion here that it’s hard to say a bad thing about it. The bulk of this is about his tumultuous relationship with his girlfriend, with the eventual break-up letter being one of the more honest things I’ve ever seen. If you prefer fiction this probably isn’t for you, but if you’re as fascinated in autobio and as I am you’ll probably love this.
