It chronicles Jeffrey's coming-of-age as a comics artist, from his obsession with superhero comics as a kid to trying to fit in as a cartoonist at the snooty School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Drawn with the trademark simplicity that has made Brown's name in the comics world ó drawing the attention of everyone from Ira Glass to USA Today ó it also recounts how Brown survived high school, abdominal surgery and the difficulties of living with Crohn's Disease, college, binge drinking, friendships, drug experimentation, coffee shops, and his ultimate decision that comics are just as important as traditional art.
