Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary

Author(s): Justin Green

Graphic Novels

A lost classic of underground cartooning, "Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary" is Justin Green's autobiographical portrayal of his struggle with religion and his own neuroses. Binky Brown is a young Catholic struggling with all the usual problems of adolescence - puberty, agnosticism, and the fear that the strange ray of energy emanating from his private parts will strike a picture of the Holy Virgin Mary. Deeply confessional, with artwork that veers wildly between formalist and hallucinogenic, "Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary" is the controversial masterpiece which invented the autobiographical graphic novel. Review: "The first, absolutely the first ever cartoonist to draw highly personal autobiographical comics." R. Crumb "A revelation... [Justin Green] turned his life into little confession booth panels, and it was almost scary to see how far he'd go." Art Spiegelman
