Amy Breis is going nowhere fast. She just broke up with yet another loser boyfriend, and is feeling disconnected from all humanity. Between her passive-aggressive mother and dead end retail job, Amy seeks solace in reruns of her favorite cartoon (Mr. Dangerous) and phone conversation with her friend Michael.
I was drawn to this graphic novel because of the beautiful illustrations, and the sad-but-true theme of loneliness and singledom. Yet, the story feels a little flat and the best moments are few and far between. Hornschemeier seems über-talented, but I wanted to like this one more than I actually did.
