Kochalka's diaries have utterly redefined the daily comic strip. His attempt to document the minutia of his life results in work that explores the full spectrum of human emotions. Drawn with verve and confidence by a cartoonist at the height of his powers, it is ambitious, hilarious, moving, and quite addictive! This astounding book follows the ups and downs of Kochalka's life through five full years of the strip (October 26, 1998 to December 31, 2003), and also includes 32 full-color pages of supplementary comics and other artwork. Quite simply, this is Kochalka's masterpiece!
