9781606993972: Unlovable: The Complete Collection (Slipcased edition) (Vol. 1-2) (Unloveable)

The complete collection of a modern classic!

Loosely based on a teenager’s diary from the 1980s found in a gas-station bathroom, Unlovable is the remarkable story of Tammy Pierce, as filtered through the pen of Los Angeles artist Esther Pearl Watson. This boxed set collects the complete, acclaimed two-volume saga of Tammy’s sophomore year of high school in 1989.

Tammy has built a devoted following over the last several years in the pages of BUST magazine, where Unlovable continues to be serialized on the magazine’s back page, and this beautifully produced, slipcased collection features all 832 pages of her sometimes ordinary, sometimes humiliating, often poignant and always hilarious exploits. Her hopes, dreams, agonies and defeats are brought to vivid, comedic life by Watson’s lovingly grotesque drawings, filled with all the eighties essentials ― too much mascara, leg warmers with heels and huge hair, etc. ― as well as timeless teen concerns like acne, dandruff, and the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases). Unlovable addresses the mysteries of adolescence through Tammy’s naivete; girls and women in particular will find much that resonates, but men will also relate to Unlovable’s universal humor and wide cast of characters. Tammy’s life isn’t pretty, but it is endlessly charming and hilarious.

This complete edition will be handsomely packaged in an irresistibly sparkly box that would make Tammy proud. Two-color comics throughout

Review :

“GOOD!!!”
- Lynda Barry

“In the mode of Lynda Barry and Aline Kominsky, Esther Pearl Watson has gifted us with an adolescent heroine whose nightmare life is touching and alienating, sad and hilarious, naive and knowing. Think of the hypothetical 1980s high school days of the Onion’s Jean Teasdale, and you might start to have a notion of what the life of Tammy Pierce is all about. ... Her lugubrious, hopeful incompetence is both excruciating to witness and impossible not to laugh at.”
- Paul DiFilippo, Barnes & Noble Review

“From the moment I laid eyes on Unlovable, I knew immediately that I had to run it as a series in BUST. Tammy Pierce is such an endearing underdog, and her teen-loser ways keep me coming back. No matter how cool or smart you may be as a grown up, I think there is a little Tammy in all of us.”
- Laurie Henzel, BUST Magazine Creative Director

Unlovable is why we all want to forget about our high school years, but we just can’t help but reliving parts again to feel the pain.”
- Eric Nakamura, Giant Robot

“Tammy shows us how much she seems to be unlovable, but after a romp through the story inside, just as when meeting real people, we see there is so much to pity, admire, love, and root for. The scratchy artwork perfectly displays the awkward teen years; nothing goes right. Everything and everyone is on edge. Through the narrative, you can quickly switch between cheering on, yelling at, and dissing the ever optimistic Tammy.”
- Angela Boyle, Schulz Library Blog

“This book reminds me of my life. It’s like looking in a mirror and the mirror has stickers and toothbrush splashes on it.”
- Leslie Hall

“Esther Pearl Watson’s Unlovable is a rude, crude and frequently hilarious portrait of suburban teenage life in the 1980s. The book’s narrator, Tammy Pierce, is probably the most hapless 15-year-old girl imaginable. ... Watson makes Tammy comedy gold.”
- Robert Martin, The Comics Journal

“[A]ll of the fun and chaos of being a sophomore is lovingly portrayed by the heroine, Tammy Pierce. ...[T]he angst of dances, boys, makeup and big hair are portrayed with painful accuracy.”
- Julia Eussen, AnnArbor.com
