Name that demon!!! Freaky boyfriend! Shouting Moms! Innocence betrayed! Rotten things we've done that will haunt us forever! These are some of the pickled demons Lynda Barry's stories serve up comic-strip style, mixing the true and the un-true into something she calls "autobifictionalography". Inspired by a 16th-century Zen monk's painting of a hundred demons chasing each other across a long scroll, and encouraged by a 20th-century editor at Salon.com, Barry's demons jump out of these pages and double-dare you to speak their names.

El Diablito

4 stars

Una serie de viñetas semi-autobiográficas, cada una inspirada en un "demonio" en particular: Algo o alguien que cambia tu vida y tu perspectiva para siempre, tal vez no de la mejor manera, pero que terminan convirtiéndote en la persona que eres actualmente.

Como siempre, las técnicas mixtas de Linda Barry son una chulada. Collage, tinta china, origami, acuarelas...
