The Greatest of Marlys (Drawn & Quarterly). Lynda Barry created Marlys Mullen, the irrepressible young protagonist of Ernie Pook’s Comeek, back in the 1980s, but the stories of the joys, heartbreak, triumphs and cruelties of childhood are timeless. D&Q put together this handsome reissue of the best-loved Marlys stories just in time for Barry’s induction into the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame.
