    In my dreams of teenage trauma prophylaxis Kathleen Hanna hands me Pussy Whipped and this book as a 13 year old, before I lose my virginity. Avenue D is playing in the background: "Shit, you know they all just want to hit it./They're just talking shit 'cos they want it," which, although nobody will prank call my house at 3am to call me a slut for a couple years, is a revelation that rings true.I come out of adolescence unscathed.

    This book is the bomb and Lynda Barry is the bombalurina. This book seems to be the crossroads, the point where she transformed from her perfectly incredible and delightful self, to the milk of human kindness filled, self-forgiving, fully honest role model and teacher that she is today. You can feel it.A lot of things I'd been hunching about were confirmed herein.The last story, about the monkey head stationery was very sweet, and made me happy for lynda.Matt Groening may be funk lord of the uni [...]

    This is the best thing I've read in ages and I am sorely tempted to just start right back over and read the whole thing again right now. November 2016 reread:Joe got me this from Quimby's in late July last year when I flew out there to roadtrip back to New York with him which was our like sixth date or something maybe? Which tbpf I am not that charmed by stories of Going! Way! Romantically! Overboard! too early in the game, mainly because I tend to blow all my chunks early on as a sort of matter [...]

    how stupid am I for not reading this before?! super stupid! It was awesome.Highlights for me:-"Common Scents" was hilarious.-"Hate" was gratifying.-The line, "This ability to exist in pieces is what some adults call resilience. And I suppose in some way it is a kind of resilience that makes adults believe children forget trauma" collapsed the chest of both my childhood self as well as my parental self.-The dialog in "Lost and Found" with the arrow pointing to one woman, reading "super dramatical [...]

    I caught myself thinking about taking up a paintbrush and water colors while reading this so I could paint out my demons too. I really love the one about the aswang (a scary dog demon story that her grandma tells her interwoven with a bunch of mother-daughter stuff), Dancing---amazing amazing amazing---just think hula + suave uncles dancing the twist in the kitchen + dancing baby-madness in the morning + trying to befriend the coolest dancing girl in the world. "Sensitive nose" and "hate" and "m [...]

    Synopsis:NAME THAT DEMON!!! Freaky Boyfriends! Shouting Moms! Innocence betrayed! Rotten things we've done that will haunt us forever! These are some of the pickled demons Lynda Barry's storeis serve up comic-strip style, mixing the true and un-true into something she calles "autobifictionalography." Inspired by a 16th-century Zen monk's painting of a hundred demons chasing each other across a long scroll, and encouraged by a 20th-century editor, Barry's demons jump out of these pages and double [...]

  • Licha

    Funny and poignant at times. Hard to tell which parts are real but I sensed some underlying pain in regards to the relationship between the author and her mother. I wished she had touched more this and growing up as a mixed child. She grew up with her Filipino mother but never mentions her father. The Filipino kids view her a strange due to her red hair, even being curious about whether she gets white lice versus their black lice and request that if she ever finds out she should mail them the ev [...]

    WOW!!!!!!! Je suis flabergastée. Drôle et triste et touchant et dur et léger et TOUTTEEEE. Graphiquement dans le même genre que Julie Doucet, mais pour ce qui est du contenu, on est vraiment ailleurs. Je ne m'attendais à rien au départ puisque je n'avais pas de coup de coeur pour ses illustrations, mais après quelques pages, j'étais prise au piège. J'ai même dû retarder mon souper de veille de Noël afin de la terminer. C'est peu dire.

    I first read this comic on salon when I was 24, which was just old enough to appreciate the tone of regret, trauma, and fragile beauty. I was crushed when the comic ended after only 17 entries. Reading it again ten years later, the writing affects me in the same way it did then. I am surprised how well I remember these stories and how I internalized them to help me make sense of the pain of growing up. The economy of Barry's storytelling is amazing. In just 18 panels she can reduce me to tears. [...]

    Lynda Barry is amazing. She is very open about her childhood, who she is and what she feels. I should have read this in my teenage years, being lost and not knowing why I felt certain waysWait, that's STILL how I amErmAnyway, I liked What it is better because I think it scratched deeper. I don't know whether I mean it scratched the topic deeper, or me, but it certainly moved plains underneath me. One Hundred Demons was hard to relate to because it lacked in the universal. Of everything. All topi [...]

    This one is the M word. The people next to me on the plane were crouching away from me, possibly because you don't smell so good on a long flight, but also because I went back and forth between laughing hysterically and stifling tears.

    Neopsivo šareni kolaž svih demona iz detinjstva i adolescencije, koji su toliko univerzalni da sam na tromeđi između smeškanja, grickanja usana od nelagode i tupog osećaja nostalgije.

  • Karyl

    It's amazing to me how well Lynda Barry has held onto the emotions and feelings that go along with being a child. Though she's 44 when she wrote this, she still evokes the magic of a kickball game so vividly, the desperate need for some kind of lovey (blankie or stuffed animal), and the awkwardness of the transition between child and adolescent. So much of this book rang true for me (I was weird and awkward, my lips were too big, I lisped, my last name always got me in trouble, I was heavier tha [...]

  • Drew Lerman

    I resisted reading this book for a long time, I think largely because of this really messy-looking introduction that made me feel like I had to go clean my room. I think I probably have read that introduction in full, in bits and pieces, over several years, so this time around I just dived in with the first story. It was great, and I recommend this approach. These anecdotes and remembrances have an off-the-cuff feel, not like they were created quickly but like they were created without a ton of [...]

  • Brandi Johnson

    This "autobifictionalography" comic was mentioned in a different comic I'd recently read. That author referred to it as a life-altering read. I don't know if I'll go that far, but I will say that I took screenshots of so many panels I should probably separate them into their own album on my phone. (Even though I own this book I felt so strongly with some of the panels that I must have them with me at all times.) She wrote & drew beautifully about being different and knowing from an early age [...]

  • Blue

    Wow! One Hundred Demons is chock full of the things we think about when we think about our childhood: mothers, first love, bullies, favorite objects, teenage blues, music, teachers, school, siblings Lynda Barry has a unique style, and with big block letters and two-paneled pages, she brings the pain and humor of childhood to beautiful, colorful, cartoony life. The stories often tell of a certain turning point, a realization, a memory triggered by something that happens many years later, and Barr [...]

    Once a Seattle local and a regular in the underground papers of the time, it makes me happy that Lynda Barry has had so much success as an artist. She deserves it.Here she explores her childhood through drawings and text inspired by a hand scroll painted by a 16th c. Zen monk, Hakuin Ekaku. I have always enjoyed Lynda Barry's art and humor. This book is tinged with both that humor and poignant self reflection as Barry examines, both purges and accepts her demons, a good example for us all.In cas [...]

  • Ella

    I get why Lynn loves it lol. It's somehow silly but also heart wrenching and truly sad at times. I was just instinctively very repulsed by a lot of the images, especially the ones of herself. I think that's sort of the point - you're hearing her story and made to sympathize with her and feel for her, but at the same time you're forced into the position of the bully/perpetrator because of how easy it is to be repulsed by the images of her, so you have to uncomfortably sit in both positions. I gue [...]

    I have an especially strong attachment to Barry's work, because my favorite aunt sent me a bunch of her comics the first time a dumb boy broke up with me. I love a lot of her work--I've even used Syllabus in a first year composition class, which worked really well. One! Hundred! Demons! may be my favorite, however. The conceit of using personal demons--the life moments that haunt you, form you, and stay with you--as the basis for comics is effective and affecting. I really loved this autobiofict [...]

    Joululahja joka ehti "pukinkonttiin" vasta tammikuun alussa. Omaelämänkerrallisia sarjakuvia joissa pysäyttäviä samaistumisia ja tuttuja teemoja jotka näkyvät ja kuuluvat myöhemmissä teoksissa. Indonesialainen isoäiti joka harrasti joka aamuista diskotanssintaa kuulostaa hyvältä. Miksi säästää bailaamiset iltaan.

  • Rosa

    This book has incredible art and sad, very true stories of growing up, but if I read one more graphic memoir about the author's crazy or disappointing parents and her sad, confusing childhood in the midcentury, I'm gonna lose it.

  • Bayneeta

    How have I missed Lynda Barry all these years? She calls this work "autobifictionalography." Part fact, part fiction, all interesting. Primarily dealing with difficult childhood and teen years. Will definitely seek out more of her work. And the final pages detailing the art materials she uses really made me want to run out and invest in my very own inkstone!

  • Cade

    This is a graphic novel initiated by a drawing exercise where the artist is to draw/paint 100 demons. Barry decided to do this exercise and shares some of her demons; however, her demons turned out to be from her past & childhood and not just whimsical drawings of creatures. The book then adds flesh to the demons by giving background information and stories to them. She states that the book is a work of Autobifictionalography - Part true to her life, part not and she doesn't elaborate or poi [...]

  • Brenda

    According to the blurb on the back cover, Barry describes her work as: "Autobifictionalography."Her introduction poses two relevant questions: "Is it autobiography if parts of it are not true?" and "Is it fiction if parts of it are?"Having read Barry's _What It Is_ not so long ago, I've been thinking of composing an article called "What It Isn't." But, I can't even figure out what to put on a rubric for the creative writing class I'll be teaching in a week. Maybe it's because the creative artist [...]

  • Andrew

    What probably worked as a serialized comic strip on Salon doesn't really work (for me, at leasta lot of five star reviews on this site, so I might just be weird) in book format. It took me forever to finish this because I could only bring myself to read two or three "demons" at a time. The self-consciously juvenile artwork fits the concept, but that doesn't stop it from getting distractingly ugly very, very fast. As for the stories themselves, they are occasionally quite touching and insightful, [...]

  • Indra

    I love Lynda Barry. There is no one like her. She manages to be sweet, funny and unflinchingly real at the same time without feeling heavy-handed. There aren't 100 demons in this book, but it feels like that many. I wondered if she chose that nice round number of demons because--for every demon that exists--several other potential demons could appear, and with a number like 100, in theory, there's room for everybody. I love the "How to Paint Your Demon" section. I did paint my demon once in real [...]

    Lynda Barry kertoo sarjakuvaromaanissaan "One Hundred Demons" (Sasquatch, 2002) lapsuudestaan ja nuoruudestaan filippiiniläistaustaisessa perheessä - tai oikeammin kai pitäisi puhua häntä muistuttavan tytön lapsuudesta ja nuoruudesta. Kuten tekijä itse muistuttaa, kyseessä ei ole siis puhtaasti omaelämäkerrallinen teos.Sarjakuva on saanut nimensä vanhasta japanilaisesta taulusta, joka innoitti myös Barrya piirtämään ja kertomaan omista demoneistaan, joita ovat muun muassa viha, ta [...]

  • Rachel Fessenbecker

    As a Buddhist, I really enjoyed this book. What a unique and genius take! I wish I had better words to describe it. Lynda Barry really took the graphic novel to new heights while using an Asian painting exercise in “One Hundred Demons.” Within, she covers seventeen “autobifictionalographic” stories where she observes and meditates on different “demons” that have affected her life throughout the years. Some of the demons/stories she shares are serious- like her hateful and abusive mot [...]

    Read for my comic book club and really enjoyed it! Barry has an artistic style that initially put me off but that I grew to really admire. I think I didn't like how she drew herself as a kid -- she's so awkward it's actually painful! Once I got into it and was able to see a bit of the author and the life behind the self-portraiture, I found the book to be filled with wonderful, melancholy insights into growing up and shot through with equal parts humor and anguish. There are a few incredibly dar [...]
