Actually, what Steve Duin says is,

“…we need to give the marketing staff at Fantagraphics a drug test for suggesting You’ll Never Know “instantly takes its place alongside Maus, Persepolis and Fun Home as a classic of the graphic memoir genre.” “

wow Alan, that quote was taken totally out of context and contradictory to the actual review:

“But I do know this: For all its charms, You’ll Never Know does not belong on the same shelf with Fun Home, Maus or the other classics of the genre, and — given the weight of expectation — it is unfairly maligned by the comparison.”

Still looks worth picking up, hope the library gets it soon

haha – that’s the ol’ movie review trick where you just take a snippet of the review to give it a good spin. Nice, Alan!

Love Glenn McCoy’s work, even though I rarely agree w/ his politics. He writes funny and draws funny, a combination that seems to be becoming more rare.
