Conhecimento Comum



It looked like there was some interesting usage of varying art styles, but I really couldn't bear to read it---it's apparently ALL stream-of-consciousness, in tiny text. So, skimmed and pretty much given up.

Found it on the library book cart at Pride (yay!!). Kind of disturbing, and sometimes I couldn't tell if it was intentional or not. There are very few black people (and no real black characters), and every time a black person appears in a panel they're yelling or angry or intimidating or outright scary---I'm pretty sure that wasn't intentional. Also some unexpected homophobia ('butches are icky and gross eww')---maybe it was being lampshaded? And weird consent stuff, which Schrag didn't directly address, but I was fairly sure that she was trying to portray it in an honest and self-critical light.

Overall, I think I didn't connect strongly because I didn't have any messy stupid messed-up high school relationships. I know I'm in the minority there. (I was a complete classic naiive nerd---shocking, I know.) I don't have a strong desire to go back and read the first one, but I think I will look out for the next one along, since the improvements in art and storytelling were so vast from beginning to end of this volume.

Potential covers the later high-school years in Schrag's extended comics biography. It's pretty uneven, and naturally a little naval-gazey at times. But it is very earnest, and feels authentic. While it may not be the greatest comcis, or the greatest story, I think it really succeeds on its own terms, and I feel that that is to be commended.

Also - Ariel Schrag's high school experience was a lot more racey than mine.
