Lynda Barry, a cartoonist, teacher and writer, is most famous for her comic strip “Ernie Pook’s Comeek,” but has also written “What It Is,” “Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor” and “One! Hundred! Demons!” among others.
My favorite thus far, “One! Hundred! Demons!” is imbued with a distinctly relatable type of humor and quirky, demonic artwork that covers topics such as head lice, “girlness” and her mother. Most people have at least one “demon” of some sort that they must deal with, though for Barry, her ghosts are real.
