Joe Sacco's mesmerizing quest to "adulthood" is a road full of the sort of hysteria, psychedelia, and bull&%#t that can only come from being a rock 'n' roll cartoonist on tour. To imagine Robert Crumb meeting Spinal Tap might give you a slight idea of what you are in store for. Yet Sacco's firsthand experiences of being on the road with retro-rockers The Miracle Workers in Berlin in the 1980s is just the beginning of this compendium. Sacco's vision is all his own: dizzying, satirical, and brutally honest.
