The other day I somehow was between new comics / graphic novels to read, so I reread Daniel Clowes' David Boring graphic novel that collects three issues of his Eightball comic.
The collected David Boring softcover came out in 2000 (I didn't remember it being that long ago) and although I liked it when it first came out, I liked it even more this time around. David Boring is a fictional story about David Boring, whose absentee father was a minor league comic book artist (and no relation to Wayne Boring, an actual artist that drew Superman for years), and like Clowes' other comic book creations, features characters who are too self-aware and nihilistic (traits that I don't think are entirely bad qualities). Basically, if you've like other Daniel Clowes graphic novels like Ghost World or Ice Haven (my favorite of his work) and or the graphic novels of Adrian Tomine (Shortcomings, Summer Blonde), you'll enjoy David Boring, which is anything about boring.
I often lament not having the time to revisit favorite graphic novels because there is so much new stuff coming out, so when I get a chance to get reread old favorites, like David Boring, that makes me happy, and I encourage Ich Liebe Comics! to MAKE time to revisit some of YOUR favorite comics and graphic novels!
