Eight-year-old Marlys Mullen is Lynda Barry's most famous character from her long-running and landmark comic strip Ernie Pook's Comeek, and for good reason! Given her very own collection of strips, Marlys shines in all her freckled and pig-tailed groovy glory. The trailer park where she and her family live is the grand stage for her dramas big and small. Joining Marlys are her teenaged sister Maybonne, her younger brother Freddie, their mother, and an offbeat array of family members, neighbors, and classmates.

As we see the world through the eyes of Marlys, her brother, and her cousin, Lynda Barry crafts children's stories without ever resorting to telling childish stories. Barry perfectly captures the innocent complications of childhood that resonate in all our hearts, whether we're young or old. Read Full Review
