Perfect Example

John Porcellino

"John Porcellino's comics distill, in just a few lines and words, the feeling of simply being alive." --Chris Ware, author/cartoonist of Jimmy Corrigan: Smartest Kid on Earth

"John Porcellino creates some of the most thoughtful, intelligent, sympathetic and, yes, beautiful comix in America." --Time.com

"What I immediately liked about Perfect Example was the spareness of the way it was drawn. After reading it, I was pleased to find out there's much more to it than beautiful artwork. It's sublime and profound and one of my favorite graphic novels."
--Chester Brown, cartoonist-author of Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography

Road trips, drunken concerts, and late-night make-out sessions all swirl together in this coming-of-age graphic novel by King Cat cartoonist John Porcellino. Tackling the pain and uncertainty of the pivotal summer before college, Porcellino's sad and beautiful story is drawn in his sincere, minimalist style. Deceptively and charmingly simple, Perfect Example is a collection of Porcellino's self-published King Cat comics that have won over thousands of readers with its honesty, empathy and sincerity.
