Lynda Barry at Penny Stamps

A Page from One Hundred Demons
Childhood is a really trying time for a lot of people. Awkward bowl cuts, neighborhood bullies, and lack of fine motor control make it tough. Lynda Barry's comics capture anguished moments from her own life in a way that is meaningful for others. A personal favorite is her book One Hundred Demons, the image above comes from the demon of dancing. It'll change how you think about or attempt the hula.

She'll be speaking and sharing at the perpetually free Penny Stamps lecture at the Michigan Theater, Thursday at 5:00 pm. If you aren't going to be doing anything, or even if you are doing something really important, say f*** it and go.
