In Unreal City, characters cannot walk into a room without their world turning inside out. Readers will be similarly upended by this masterful debut collection from cartoonist DJ Bryant. Existential and elliptical, these surreal stories are realized through Bryant's diamond-like precision as a cartoonist, navigating a labyrinth of love, sex, art, and life.

I would certainly agree with the other comments that this is a bleak, misogynistic book. The black and white art is quite well executed, but in a vein often under-appreciated by many contemporary readers.

Reminiscent of Ditko and Bagge, I enjoyed the art, but the content, however, simmers with (poorly) repressed sexuality and often overt physical and emotional violence. The characters seem very, very uncomfortable in their own skins and lives, and the stories don't address any of the underlying issues. They paint a bleak picture with no apparent effort to examine the causes of the pain and anomie of the characters. Cruelty and thoughtlessness abound. Not a pleasant read.

Ordinary comic-book style drawings. Immature, misogynistic and pornographic stories.
