Review:

Admit it: you'd rather read a good comic book than do your homework. Well, there are quite a few artists who couldn't have survived their own adolescent years without creating comix (and, yes, that's comix with an "x" for grit and no soft-focus on teenage torture). In Mind Riot, Karen Hirsch gathers a collection of brilliant, biting strips that explore teen angst in graphic detail. What's a "mind riot" you ask? "A condition of panic, when the stressed-out brain short-circuits," writes the editor. Sound familiar? The stories in here will be so familiar to you that you will weep, drool, scream, and fall apart laughing.

From the Publisher:

Mind Riot: A condition of panic, when stressed-out brain short-circuits.

Mind Riot: A condition of growing up, as seen in this graphically innovative, wildly inventive collection of stories by the best of the alternative comix artists. Here is friendship and skateboarding, gang life and body image, moviemaking and even love, all told in the intensely personal mode of comix.

Contributors: Ida Marx Blue Spruce, Ann Decker, Phoebe Gloeckner, David Greenberger, Roberta Gregory, Glenn Head, Peter Kuper, Caryn Leschen, Diane Noomin, Kevin Quigley, Vicky Rabinowicz, Dean Rohrer, Carol Swain, Carol Tyler, Colin Upton, Maurice Vellekoop.

Mind Riot: It'll blow your mind. And you'll love every minute of it.
