Comic Review: My Brain Hurts Vol. 2

by Liz Baillie

This book is a collection of issues six though ten of Liz Baillie's My Brain Hurts series and thus concludes the story. I have not read issues one through five and so I'm picking up the story here with Kate and Joey, two queer teenagers living in New York City. Kate and Joey deal with things that teenagers have to deal with the added difficulties of being gay. Joey struggles with his father's struggle to accept him, his recovery from a severe gaybashing, as well as his dependence on drugs and alchohol to deal with both. Kate confronts religious homophobes and a girlfriend that won't put out. And all this under the inflluence of raging hormones.

Included at the end is a Where are They Now file to update readers on what happened to the characters.
