182. The Alcoholic; 183. Real Photo Postcards...

The Alcoholic
by Jonathan Ames and Dean Haspiel

Started: June 28, 2010
Finished: June 29, 2010

My only previous exposure to Ames had been a few episodes of Bored to Death, which I found to be very smug and condescending. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this graphic novel. It was a well-done story with a real eye for conveying the crazy thoughts of the alcoholic mind, something I have much experience with. 136 pages. Grade: A-
Real Photo Postcards: Unbelievable Images From the Collection of Harvey Tulcensky
edited by Laetitia Wolff

Started/Finished: June 29, 2010

I wasn't too impressed with most of Tulcensky's collection of early twentieth century real photo postcards. Many of them just seemed fairly bland to me. I guess we just have different tastes. 207 pages. Grade: C
