Here are two comics; the first, a sample of what my own ‘coming of age graphic narrative’ would look like, the other is my review of Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home in which her father stumbles upon a copy of the book in the afterlife, much to his displeasure.Comics( for some reason I couldn’t get the machine to email me these comics in any format besides this…). In fact, the only formats it would allow were adobe related. Any how, I hope you enjoy them aside from their lateness. Also, they are colored in blue/black pen, I don’t know why the scanner didn’t pick up the color. I struggle with technology

The depth of the conversation regarding the cover of the book sparked my interest into the connection between the interpretation of the cover and Ben’s own struggle to see past the surface of the women with whom he is involved. The analysis took a turn into the possible investigation of how deeply he views himself considering how shallow he is when he looks at, talks about and even interacts women. Does he see himself and the other women as real people with depth or is he just fixated on the fact that he is an Asian American man with an Asian American woman and he is getting bored?
