This week on iFanboy it's all about me, me, me! Look at me!
One of the thriving subsets of the indie comics scene is the autobiography. It's hard to look at any of the end of the year "Best of..." lists without being at least a few autobiographical comic books on them - and that's not just in the comics media, but in the mainstream media as well. Autobiographical comic books are everywhere!
What are some of the best autobiographical comic books that the iFanboys have read lately?
Fun Home by Alison Bechdel tells the tale of growing up in a funeral home. There's a lot of awkwardness and a lot of pain, and a whole lot of accolades for this graphical novel.
Skyscrapers of the Mid-West by Joshua A. Cotter is the most unique of the entire group. A series of vignettes featuring anthropomorphised characters that focuses on growing up a lonely artistic kid in the Mid-West.
The Alcoholic by Jonathan Ames and Dean Haspiel chronicles a life plagued by too much alochol, too many drugs, and a whole lot of bad choices.
Sentences: The Life of M.F. Grimm by Percy Carey and Ronald Wimberly tells the story of a guy on the cusp of hip hop stardom before drugs, guns, and gangs bring it all crashing down. This one also features a surprising and tenuous connection to Conor.
Funny Misshapen Body is the latest from autobiographical comic book veteran Jeffrey Brown. This one focuses on Brown's artistic side as he finds his artistic voice in high school and art school.
Freddie & Me by Mike Dawson follows one man's life from England to America as seen through the lense of unabashed love for Freddie Mercury and Queen.
Chris Staros' Yearbook Stories: 1976-1978 by Chris Staros and Bo Hampton and Rich Tammaso tells two stories from the high school days of Top Shelf Publishing head Chris Staros. The second one must be seen to be believed.
