    "Even the undergrounds – typically about countercultural types, who occasionally complain about their parents but try to avoid them as much as possible – and the modern alt-comics movement (Alienated Loners R us!) avoided family dynamics. Sure, there are exceptions, from Will Eisner to art spiegelman…"Alison Bechdel's Fun Home is definitely a family story – it's about her relatiosnship with her father and her father's suspected secrets/secret life… (For that matter, her Dykes to Watch Out For strip/books are "family" stories, if you consider her cast an extended family…)

      I think this is the first review of the book that got the spelling of the title right and the spelling of my name wrong :)Thanks for checking it out, Andrew.-Neil Kleid

        I'm very sorry about the name mistake — the only excuse I can make is that I was obsessing about spelling "Cinquegrani" and "Novgorodoff" correctly and took my eye off the ball on your name. I've fixed it now. Thanks for pointing it out politely and humorously.
