Fear not! One Hundred Demons by Lynda Barry is not entirely scary! It is sweet, insightful, revealing…and because of that, it is completely terrifying.
Lynda Barry’s demons take the form of all of our fears and hopes gone awry. I don’t want to spoil a single moment of this beautiful memoir-esque collection of tales, but suffice it to say, it was a doozy.
If you, like me, are a fan of the classic autobiographical graphic novel, please do not be daunted by Lynda Barry’s One Hundred Demons. Don’t be afraid of the big, collage-style pages, don’t be put off by the loopy handwritten text, don’t let the foreign language words frighten you away. It is not to be missed! Not a single demon.
