Blabber Blabber Blabber: Volume 1 of Everything

Lynda Barry

This is the first of 10 planned volumes collecting the comics of Lynda Barry, a collegue to Charles Burns, Chris Ware, Gary Panter, and the woman who The Simpsons creator, Matt Groening, respectfully calls ‘The Funk Queen of the Gallaxy.’ Barry is probably the most highly regarded female alternative cartoonist of her generation.

    This is the earliest published work from Lynda Barry, originally printed in Evergreen College’s newspaper. These comics are gloriously primitive!

    I would not recommend these comics as a first exposure to Lynda Barry, because they really are kind of artistically crude, however folks who have read What It Is or her Marly’s comics and want to see the artistic ground she treaded earlier will love this document of her earliest work.

    I’m so inspired by Lynda Barry and this book is no different for me on that level. Her included reflections on this older work provides a great perspective to the art community that her generation grew in. Praise the USPS! Her sense of humor and realism is so refreshing in a world of digital art and mass media.
