Cruddy by Lynda Barry

Anthony Hudson, January 5, 2010

While the story may venture into bleak and terrifying places, "Cruddy" is absolutely beautiful. Set in the '60's and '70's it charts two separate adventures of a girl named either Roberta or Clyde in a world of drugs, insanity, negligence, filth, and a wannabe-bully named Vicky Talluso. It's as if Lynda Barry put "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," "Tideland," and Neil Young into a blender and made the resulting mixture an extra 100% hilarious.
