This epic story of Sherman, Dorothy, Ed, Stephen, Jane, and Mr. Flavor is not to be missed. Alex Robinson's completely natural and inspiring knack for dialogue has made his story of dreary jobs, comic books, love, sex, messy apartments, girlfriends (and the lack thereof), undisclosed pasts, and crusty old professionals one of the most delightful and whimsical graphic novels to hit the stands in years.

Review: Box Office Poison (Box Office Poison #1)

User Review  - Tim May - Goodreads

A meandering, unfurling, brilliant portrait of a half dozen lives, intertwined, if only for now. (re-read; first read sometime around 2006/2007) Read full review

Review: Box Office Poison - New Edition

User Review  - Faith - Goodreads

I've given this book the old college try, but it's just not holding my interest right now. I plan to revisit it in the near future, though, so I haven't completely given up. Read full review
