Reader’s Corner: Of Punks, Relationships, and American Anxieties

In my latest graphic novel round-up for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, I covered three new titles which excel in very different ways:

  • Nick Drnaso’s Acting Class is another entry in his series of blank-faced, haunting, Lynchian nightmares about American anxiety.
  • James Spooner’s The High Desert is a thoughtful, cutting memoir about growing up a black punk rocker in the middle of nowhere.
  • Jordan Crane’s Keeping Two starts with everyday relationship tension before spiraling out into something far weirder and devastating.

You can read the reviews at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
