Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary


A lost classic of underground cartooning, Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin
Mary is Justin Green’s autobiographical portrayal of his struggle with
religion and his own neuroses. Binky Brown is a young Catholic battling all
the usual problems of adolescence?puberty, parents, and the fear that the
strange ray of energy emanating from his private parts will strike a picture
of the Virgin Mary. Deeply confessional, with artwork that veers wildly
between formalist and hallucinogenic, Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary
is the controversial masterpiece that invented the autobiographical graphic
novel.

This title has not (yet) been reviewed by our staff, but it is a title that we highly recommend for the majority of libraries building collections for this age range.
