Youth is Wasted is a collection of short comics by Noah van Sciver taken from his series Blammo from between 2010 and 2013 And, like most anthologies, the stories are a mixed bunch in terms of quality The best comic here is 1999 which I ve already read reviewed as a standalone comic available cheaply on Comixology recommended so I won t go into it here but I think I would ve rated this collection higher if I hadn t already read this Like 1999, the majority of van Sciver s stories feature lower m [...]
This is a fascinating collection of shorter pieces, most I think collected from Van Sciver s single author anthology, Blammo It makes me hate the fact that I didn t know about Blammo sooner.
A wide range of comic short stories, mostly reprinted from Blammo, trying different effects, approaches, ranging from some capturing angry disaffected punk to rewritten myths There s two pagers in here, but I prefer the longer stuff, like 1999, about a relationship he has with a woman in a fast food restaurant It s edgy, playful, often funny, but never mean spirited, as he cares about the characters, including when he writes about himself.
A series of short little stories all singularly executed and disturbing and very much their own thing It s always so nice to find something that is just totally its own thing, you know Like it s not packed with stuff that reminds you how everyone is awful and the same Rachel you should read this although you might find the characters irritating since you are so young whereas I am forty and can just look back on the chump juggalos of my childhood as through a faygo 2 liter darkly.

Noah Van Sciver is THE cartoonist now a days All of his stories are beautiful in their plot, themes, and drawing I highly recommend Noah s work to everyone.

This is one bizarre collection of comics Sometimes I laughed at them and sometimes I cringed, but almost all of them were unique and entertaining This is one of the rare cases where some of the stories to the comics almost overshadow the art itself I picked this up at the local library Woodbury and was overjoyed to find out that he had Denver ties and I could picture some of the places he referenced only because he mentioned some of them in the notes afterward section At any rate, if you re look [...]
There s a few comics in here that weren t my cup of tea, but most of them blew me away Because I Have To, about a guy wandering his neighborhood on Halloween a year after his little brother was killed in a car accident, is one of my all time favorite comic short stories I also love Abby s Road, Who Are You, Jesus , Expectations, and the 1 page dream comic, I don t love anyone If you ve already read these stories in Noah s Blammo series, there s an extensive Notes section in the back that sheds a [...]
I loved this I think every story in this book was solid and thought provoking and sometimes crude I found myself sympathizing with some of the situations, although I am not sure if that is a good thing Heh.
Ohhh it s so hard to be grouchy ANGST BEERS AND STUFF Angst The end.I don t remember anything much about this, and Imma take that as a sign there wasn t much to remember.
While I loved his take on Lincoln in another book , this is definitely what you call early work yawn
I m really into his style and some of these stories But still waiting to find the NVS book that really speaks to me.
