Two teenaged punk-rock girls hitchhike their way across Italy without a penny in their pockets. Set in 1984, Ulli Lust's Today is the last day of the rest of your life is an intimate, detailed, funny, touching, and dramatic chronicle of several eventful months in the life of the author as she and her new best friend Edi make their way from Vienna, Austria to Sicily. There is sex. There are drugs. There is rock 'n' roll. And there are stints in jail, inclement weather, panhandling, life lessons, new friendships, acts of kindness and acts of betrayal-- and, this being Sicily, some uncomfortably close brushes with the Organization Whose Name You Mustn't Mention.

Ordinary drawings and dialogue. Autobiographical story of immaturity, irresponsibility, and misogyny. Would appeal to teenage punk male audience.

This is a brick of a book, and the lettering is tiny. But the storytelling flows effortlessly through its 400-plus pages. Lust is fearlessly honest about the darker days of her journey through Italy. A fine example of the revelatory, liberating power of comic book autobiography.
