Young picks up and extends his autobio comics about -uh- loving comics...It always feels a little uncomfortable to me when folks indulge the medium to such a degree, from Seth to Alec Longstreth to this...but I can see there's a comfort and importance to the nostalgia of comics too. That's what this VDS leans on - the nostalgia of being a true fan plus talking about the weird quirks of the culture tempered by a healthy dose of real life. -EF
