A Process of Drastically Reducing One's Expectations by Gabby Schulz

A Process of Drastically Reducing One's Expectations by Gabby Schulz

This book collects 392 pages of Gabby Schulz's diary comics drawn from 2013-2016. Below is an excerpt from the author’s introduction:

“If these pages have any value it is the voyeuristic thrill of watching a stranger document the implosions of his life in real time, charting all the discrete failures and unutterable, graceless fears that filled the worst years of his life (to date). These pages were drawn during a prolonged period of solitude, nightly drinking and suicidal ideation, as I lost a home, suffered from mysterious debilitating pains, and returned to minimum-wage retail life in a new city mostly famous for segregation, gun violence, police torture, and putting meat juice on sausage.”

More depressing than Monsters, but less depressing than Sick, APODROE is recommended for mature readers only.
