    another sad book from paul hornschemeiert nearly as sad as Mother, Come Home, the book that makes most people cry, but of the gentle sorrow that just permeates all existence no just me, then kayis one is about a girl in her late twenties, drifting unsuitable men, awkward relationship with her mother, which spans the spectrum of love to embarrassment, crappy job, and a faraway friend who owns her heart.he does the small internal terrors so well the judgmental this guy doesn t like what i like , [...]

    Apparently it is not a day for generous reviews I worry I m being a bit harsh, giving than one two star rating in one morning Especially after a beautiful much needed rain storm always lightens my mood But here I am, feeling frustrated with the comics I ve been reading and for now, giving out some twos Life With Mr Dangerous is a bleak, vague, and and not terribly delightful book It s one of those works that is trying to represent regular or plain folks, whatever that means, for whom not much h [...]

    Having enjoyed some of Mr Hornschemeier s previous comix, I was unpleasantly surprised by this timid show n tell concerning several weeks in the life of a depressed slacker Amy, 26, lives with her cat in a one bedroom apartment in an unnamed city in the Midwest, says the book s back cover works in a retail clothing shop in a mall has broken up with a boyfriend who just wasn t that into her spends Friday nights watching an Adult Swim esque cartoon called Mr Dangerous and is inconveniently in love [...]

    A dead end retail job.Lunches with a mother who also has a dead end retail job in the same mall.Riding the bus.Obsession with a snarky cartoon.This comic captures a moment in the life of a latetwenties woman with no real direction to her life She crushes on a guy who recently moved away, and occasionally tries to fill the void with casual encounters with strangers I liked how the story captured geekiness though it s depicted with a heavy dose of snark pity It also encapsulated how hopeless life [...]

    Ugh This was my second shot at reading a Paul Hornchemeier graphic novel and once again I was pretty disappointed I guess I just don t see the point Another comics dude writing about younger woman coming into her own It feels flat and unbelievable There was no plot to speak of, the characters were wooden and lifeless, and overall I felt like I was reading something intended to be thoughtful and real without any emotion or depth to back it up Somehow graphic novels are given a pass for being ligh [...]

    It s been awhile since I read any slice of life type comics and this reminded me how much I really love the genre P Horn s art is always pitch perfect and is what really drives this story, which is super relatable Spellcheck has just informed me that relatable isn t a word unless you hyphenate it, but eff that I think this book is especially refreshing because of the over representation of the same type of story from a male perspective where a character like Amy s is represented only by her acti [...]

  12. Norman

    Not NEARLY as sad as Mother, Come Home a masterpiece but still pretty damn good Sure, the Clowesian nature of it the bitterly angsty drifting protagonist, the clean cut lines and colors, and the realistic surrealism of life makes it none too original, but I found it oddly relatable Maybe it s because Amy is just turning 26 and is trying to figure out her life like me Or maybe it s because she seems to hate people, often having inner torturous dialogue about people around her Or maybe it s her in [...]

  13. George Marshall

    Everyone has already said it OK but not great and derivative All I would add is that the twenty something girl dreamer insecure neurotic seeking love graphic novel has been done very much better with gorgeous art in the Nao of Brown And that the retro kitsch story inside a story of Mr Dangerous is now a tired cliche of comics including Dan Clowes David Boring, Hornshemeier s other book Three Paradoxes, Brian Fies disappointing Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow and lots of Matt Kindtw id [...]

  14. Marc Weidenbaum

    One of the things that distinguishes comics from text only fiction is how much clearly influence bleeds through You can read Jonathan Lethem s As She Crawled Across the Table and not necessarily note the imprimatur of Don DeLillo You would be hard put, though, in work even as solid as comics artist Paul Hornschemeier s not to see in his drawings and settings the presence of Daniel Clowes, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware, James Kochalka, perhaps even John Pham, and others That s fine, as those artists [...]

  15. Megan

    I read this because I really enjoyedMother Come Home and wanted to see if this author artist s other works were just as good Although I didn t like this one as much as the previously mentioned sobfest, I was quite impressed with how poignant and dead on accurate this dude is about young women This graphic novel reminded me of the HBO show Girls, and if you re a 20 something chick with premium cable channels, you ve probably watched it and thought holy crap, Lena Dunham kinda gets me Chances are [...]

    Reviews Detail Booklist Reviews Like many of her twentysomething peers, Amy, the protagonist of Hornschemeier s latest graphic novel, is mired in a dead end retail job A recent breakup with her boyfriend, concluding the latest in a series of failed relationships, has left her romantically gun shy her best friend, Michael, has moved to San Francisco she s given up making art and she fears winding up like her mother, a middle aged woman who, after her divorce, is stuck working in a clothing store [...]

    There s an emotional payoff, but it happens late in the book The boredom of working retail and late night tv, of standing up for an underdog who doesn t want to be helped, and dealing with dickish customers it s all numbing and meant to be, in order to throw an emotional payoff into higher relief Fine But the blanket numbness goes on too long The main character periodically watches a TV show, but unfortunately this too is soporific and senseless, instead of a parallel narrative Life with Mr Dang [...]

  18. Lauren

    This is at once reassuring and with some reluctance, but I found too many similarities between myself and this young lady That sad feeling you get when looking at an empty playground, or witnessing another person s quiet embarrassment Turning 26 and realizing it doesn t mean anything because birthdays are superfluous at this point Good friends who are too far away Forgetting how to make art it s as simple as sitting down and doing it, idiot This is a less clever, less affecting take on the Danie [...]

  19. Alex

    Hornschemeier s Life with Mr Dangerous is such an accurate depiction of being 26 that I don t have words for it the sense of aimlessness and isolation, the desire to not be alone set against the pessimism of past failures, the desire to accomplish something against the lethargy of daily meaninglessness Every moment in the comic mattered, building towards something without losing the sense of sadness and frustrating I felt, reading this comic, as if I was reading about my life before I met my w [...]

    How does Paul Hornschemeier a guy capture the heart of a 27 year old woman so well This is suburban malaise at its best Too much junk food and t.v and conversations with cats is making Amy sad, along with the fact her mum treats her like an 11 yr old and she can t get in touch with her best friend on the phone I love the way Hornschemeier draws and I wish this graphic novel came with a soundtrack cos it would be a good one.

  21. Nellie Airoldi

    Ecco, La vita di Mr Dangerous di Paul Hornschemeier un Hopper lungo 160 pagine, dai colori accesi ma opachi, dalle pagine ruvide ma sincere, dalla copertina cartonata colorata che una meraviglia guardarla fra gli scaffali sapendo poi che le sue tavole nascondono segreti e verit che sono noi justanotherpoint.wordpress

  22. Nikki

    Another novel about an insecure, aimless 20 something who jumps from guy to guy while working a meaningless job, only this time she s also obsessed with a cartoon called Mr Dangerous I guess that s what passes for character development these days.

  23. Kokeshi

    Unfortunately, this graphic novel did not impress me very much The story is boring and the graphics dull I am sure it will speak to some readers, but a story about a 27 year old woman who can t get her life going and who is constantly depressed is as DULL AS DISHWATER.

  24. Trey Piepmeier

    This was a somewhat fun, quite awkward, quick read It reminds me a lot of the melancholy real life independent comics I used to be really into in my early 20s Eightball, Optic Nerve, etc The coloring was quite nice.

  25. Melody

    Slacker girl with dead end job lives alone with cat and television I get the existential angst, but merciful heavens, it s deadly to read More deadly to live, no doubt But wow, what a depressing, sad, hopeless little book this is Even the ending doesn t redeem it.

  26. Roderick Mcgillis

    Amy is a clerk in a department store She struggles with life, but with the help of her cat and TV s Mr Dangerous, she prevails I like this work Simple, yet heartfelt and clever.

  27. Liam

    I can tolerate, even love, anti heroes, but something about characters in Hornschemeier s stories does not sit well with me I don t think it s because they are weak willed, or because they might expose flaws of my own self denial, but because they seem unrealistic I don t mind tragedy and surrealism so long as the characters remain pure Amy loves the TV show Mr.Dangerous and pushes away many men, but she never qualifies to herself or to them, why This leaves what I think is unintentionally stunt [...]

  28. Jill Kenna

    This book ripped my heart out in the fifteen minutes that it took me to read it I have never read something so short that affected me so quickly The artwork conveyed so much emotion even when the characters weren t speaking I highly recommend this.

  29. GONZA

    Not so funny but made me think I wouldn t recommend it to everybody anywayNon particolarmente divertente, ma sicuramente mi ha fatto riflettere Comunque non lo consiglierei a tutti.
