    Lovely. I think Lynda Barry is one of the most important cartoonists of the last hundred years; she is appallingly overlooked on a continual basis; perpetually passed-over while lesser talents are lionized (I'm looking right at you, Frank Miller); and sort of allowed to gracefully sail thru the quagmire of funny drawings unacknowledged--as such, ANYTIME Barry is even MENTIONED is something that should be trumpeted--I challenge anyone to produce a more touching, hilarious, insightful and nostalgic portrait of a character than Barry's Marlys--Lynda Barry is one of the finest cartoonists the world has ever produced, and I'm ashamed she doesn't receive the recognition from younger cartoonists that her influence obviously informs.
