Paying for ItPaying For It by Chester Brown

I gave this 4 of 5 stars on Goodreads

I enjoyed this graphic novel way more than I expected to. It’s not even that I agree with the author’s point of view — in most cases I just don’t — but he is totally committed to exposing himself with as much honesty and candor as is available. I really appreciate the effort. The story, like the drawing style, is simple but effective even for such complicated subject matter. Though he addresses this in the notes and it makes sense, I am still a little bothered by how one-dimensional the ladies are in the story. I also found I liked the story more before I read the extensive notes that only served as an extended diatribe that I wasn’t really in it for. But, those two things aside, I think anyone would benefit from giving this one a go. If nothing else, it will force you to think about this stuff, and it’s important!
