Humor is subjective, so be prepared for "The 'Comedy' Issue," wherein Rob meets actual guest star Marc Maron (of Maron and WTF fame) and also finds himself in his most uncomfortable moment to date. It's sex, stress, and sesame noodles in the squirmy third chapter. Lock the gates!

    Fingerman’s writing is, I’ll say it again, extremely real. He shows us situations that we ourselves have been through, are going through, or will go through, and gives very plausible outcomes from those situations. The language is natural and fluid, as is the artwork. Fingerman isn’t afraid to show the ugly side of his characters, and that, the normalness of this book, is why I love it so much—and so will you.

    Like the greats such as Pekar, Fingerman has a talent for depicting the small, but relatable moments in life, such as the regular instances of questioning, or even justifying, a bad relationship. The issue illustrates the consequences of Rob's refusal to follow his own instincts, prolonging something he knows he shouldn't, out of the ever-destructive, but very human fear of being alone. But Fingerman also shows another great truth: you can feel worse while with someone than when alone. It's what makes comics such as Minimum Wage both so simple and so enlightening all at once.
