 Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2 is the second book collecting Leslie Stein's loose, funny and charming autobiographical narratives that combine idiosyncratic fantasy and stark reality. Larrybear, our hero, has moved from the countryside to the city, where she finds work as a shop girl. Quotes from Theodore Dreiser's Sister Carrie are sprinkled throughout the story to add humor and poignancy. Stein then takes us back to a childhood in the '80s filled with odd experiences including joining a rock band with older people, sitting in on her mother's AA groups, and the mystery of the disappearing gumballs. Finally, a fun story in which Larrybear and her new friend Poppin the Flower go on a strange trip to see his father. Let us not forget that Marshmallow, Ping-Ping and Mimolette, Larry's walking and talking instruments, have adventures all their own. Stein's gorgeous cartooning, highlighted by incredibly detailed stippling, and her dry sense of humor combine to make one of the most unique and immersive narrative experiences in comics. "Leslie Stein's comics give readers privileged access to a complete and wholly original world of gently skewed wonders." – Jim Woodring "Part cute, part kind of creepy art-wise. The writing is serious and smart, slightly contradicting what the art is saying but this makes the work good. And real. And slightly creepy." – Gilbert Hernandez - See more at: http://www.fantagraphics.com/browse-shop/eye-of-the-majestic-creature-vol.-2.html#sthash.IcvyBcsE.dpuf
