I've been a fan of Poorly Drawn Lines for a while now, I like the art's simplicity and I like Farazmand's gift for the weird, the funny, and the endless void of morbid introspection.
However, while this book did have a few of my favourite (and most popular) comics:
The way it was put together wasn't balanced. You'd get pages of sadness and self-doubt, then you'd get pages of funny comics - it didn't follow a theme or narrative line, there was no progression, it seemed aleatory, which made reading it an uneven experience.
So, good comics but a disorganised book.
Also, this comic wasn't in it, but I have to share it, since it's one of my favourites!
