Lily and Doyle find they have something in common.

I set the panels up this way to get them as large and clear as I could, and now it looks like a newspaper strip. Fits right next to the Word Jumble.

Little by little all of the character and principle at Doyle's core is being revealed.

Bumperhead - new graphic novel by Gilbert Hernandez: ” The Love and Rockets author, Gilbert Hernandez, returns with Bumperhead, a companion book to Marble Season. Whereas Marble Season explored the exuberant and occasionally troubled existence of the wide-eyed preteen Huey, Bumperhead zeroes in on disaffected teenhood with its protagonist, Bobby.
Bumperhead follows Bobby, a young slacker who narrates his life as it happens but offers very little reflection on the events that transpire. He lives in the moment exclusively and is incapable of seeing the world outside of his experiences. He comes of age in the 1970s, making a rapid progression through that era’s different subcultures and in a short period of time segues from a stoner glam rocker to a drunk rocker to a speed-freak punk. He drifts in and out of relationships with friends, both male and female. Life zooms past him.
Hernandez’s approach captures the numbness and raw undirected anger and passion of a young man who waits for life to happen to him, not noticing all the while that it is happening. Subtle and thought-provoking, Bumperhead is a fascinating read.

More of Doyle, his search and his distractions. These two panels almost don’t need any words at all. Pure surprise on the left and pure disappointment on the right. Look at them in sequence and they convey his reactions perfectly. The jacket and the tree are both really nice, but I think my favorite part of both of these is the window with the blinds in the background.
