After growing up in Michigan, a 25-year-old Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. By the time he completed his studies, he had abandoned painting and started drawing comics seriously. His first self-published book, Clumsy, appeared seemingly out of nowhere to grab attention from both cartoonists and comics fans. Established as an overly sensitive chronicler of bittersweet adolescent romance and nonsense superhero parody, Brown's current direction remains split between more autobiography examining the minutiae of everyday life and whatever humorous fiction he feels in the mood for. His most popular works include Clumsy, Unlikely, AEIOU, and Every Girl is the End of the World For Me, comprising the so-called "Girlfriend Trilogy" and its epilogue. More recently his autobiographical work has included Little Things and Funny Misshapen Body. His parody The Incredible Change-Bots, the Ignatz Award winning I am going to be small and humorous cat book Cat Getting Out Of A Bag all stand out amongst his humor work, while his Sulk series continues to take on a variety of subjects with satire. Jeffrey's work has appeared in a host of anthologies from McSweeney's to The Best American Comics, as well as mainstream books like The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror and Marvel's Strange Tales. His original artwork has been exhibited in New York, Paris, and Chicago. Brown has been featured on NPR's This American Life and even created a short animated music video for the band Death Cab For Cutie. He lives in Chicago with his wife and son.Visit jeffreybrowncomics.blogspot.com for news and drawings, and you can write to him at: PO Box 120, Deerfield IL 60015-0120, USA

Parts of this comic book on cats were cute, but I was largely underwhelmed. I guess I was looking for something a little more insightful, à la How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You, rather than just cute fluff. That said, several of the panels did strike a note with me, like the one I've...

4 Stars, borrow it Cute story of Darth Vader and his daughter Leia who has grown up to be a teenager. Of course there is jokes and references about the movie. Recommend this, but I maybe wouldn’t buy it. It’s a quick easy read but I don’t think I’d want to read it more than once.

Lucy and Andy and the Neanderthal*** This comic book style novel is directed at readers aged 8-12. It attempts to teach them about the beginning of our civilization in the Stone Age, using science and a story line which should encourage interest in further learning. The story is cute with occasional...
