One Hundred Demons by Lynda Barry

Into the Wild

One Hundred Demons Read Online Free - In this graphic novel that's part memoir and part creativity primer, Lynda Barry serves up comics that delve into the funk and sweetness of love, family, adolescence, race, and the hood. Name that Demon!!! Freaky boyfriends! Shouting Moms! Innocence betrayed! These are some of the pickled demons you'll meet as Lynda Barry mixes the true and the un-true into something she calls "autobificitionalography." From her nattering and intolerant/loving Filipina grandmother to the ex-boyfriend from hell who had lice, Lynda Barry's demons jump out of these pages and double-dare you to speak their names. Called by Time magazine "a work of art as well as literature," One Hundred Demons has been hailed for its shimmering watercolor images and unforgettable stories about life's little monsters.

In my dreams of teenage trauma prophylaxis Kathleen Hanna hands me Pussy Whipped and this book as a 13 year old, before I lose my virginity. Avenue D is playing in the background: "Shit, you know they all just want to hit it./They're just talking shit 'cos they want it," which, although nobody wi...

This book is the bomb and Lynda Barry is the bombalurina. This book seems to be the crossroads, the point where she transformed from her perfectly incredible and delightful self, to the milk of human kindness filled, self-forgiving, fully honest role model and teacher that she is today. You can f...

how stupid am I for not reading this before?! super stupid! It was awesome. Highlights for me: -"Common Scents" was hilarious. -"Hate" was gratifying. -The line, "This ability to exist in pieces is what some adults call resilience. And I suppose in some way it is a kind of resilience that makes adult...

I really love the one about the aswang (a scary dog demon story that her grandma tells her interwoven with a bunch of mother-daughter stuff), Dancing---amazing amazing ama...

Funny and poignant at times. Hard to tell which parts are real but I sensed some underlying pain in regards to the relationship between the author and her mother. I wished she had touched more this and growing up as a mixed child. She grew up with her Filipino mother but never mentions her father...

WOW!!!!!!! Je suis flabergastée. Drôle et triste et touchant et dur et léger et TOUTTEEEE. Graphiquement dans le même genre que Julie Doucet, mais pour ce qui est du contenu, on est vraiment ailleurs. Je ne m'attendais à rien au départ puisque je n'avais pas de coup de coeur pour ses illustration...

I first read this comic on when I was 24, which was just old enough to appreciate the tone of regret, trauma, and fragile beauty. I was crushed when the comic ended after only 17 entries. Reading it again ten years later, the writing affects me in the same way it did then. I am surprise...
