Grace's pencil work is phenomenal, with his style shifting to fit the tone of the story telling. The manager's shifting face is clever, with each face representing her attitude as is the flow chart explaining his salary at the store. The design and layout of each page is superb. More than a simple grid of panels, the story flows through segment of art in a pretty clever way.
The main character is likable with problems most can relate to in his love life. The internal monologue is spot on and pretty clever, especially when the narrator reminisces over some of the stylistic choices of his teenage years. The troubles the main character has with getting over his past loves hits a very true note and his feelings toward his new partner, and the internal conflict they cause are very true to life. Plus, the story is a pretty accurate representation of the sometimes tedious, occasionally cutthroat, and often dead end nature of retail work.
Overall, it's a good read. Pretty short but clever and at times touching. While not ground breaking, it's a fresh, inventive (possibly?) autobiographical story definitely worth the read. Anyone who has been haunted by the ghosts of lost love or has found themselves working retail at any point in their will especially enjoy it.
The pencils are very fun, switching from real life to imagination. The facial expressions on the characters give real incite and add to the excitement of the reader.
Overall Not My Bag was a quick, fun read, that goes through with everyday problems anyone could have.
Overall very fun read, I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
