Bordeaux, Ariel – Deep Girl #2

Deep Girl #2

It’s starting to feel like I’m living on memory lane these days, between all these reviews of old minis and my moving back to the town where this website got started (Champaign Illinois, in case I ever start an Optical Sloth trivia game).  Anyway, it’s reminding me of why nostalgia is as popular as it is, as I’m loving being (mostly) back in town and am also thoroughly enjoying these oldies.  That was expected, but you never know when you go back and read/watch something you enjoyed back in the day if it’ll hold up.  Deep Girl holds up.  There are a few stories this time around, including the early days of Ariel and romance (her first time, what total losers she hung around and how she finally figured out that sex wasn’t hard to come by), Lovie Doll (who gets sick of a guy berating her for not knowing about politics and current events), and the joy of hunting for a job (in this case applying at a trendy coffee shop and feeling insulted just from the application).  Again, this looks a bit cruder than her later work, but it still doesn’t look anywhere near bad  and it’s still funny as hell.  Hop in that time machine and grab yourself a copy, or keep hoping that something in this indifferent universe hears your pleas for a collected edition of this stuff…
