Books »The Playboy

Chester Brown's The Playboy, is, in my opinion, a slighter book than 1994's I Never Liked You (which I adore), though it seems to have resonated considerably with a number of male readers and is touted as a quiet masterpiece of the graphic novel format.

Through the straightforward confessions of his young obsession and subsequent guilt over masturbating to Playboys, Brown recalls the kind of humiliation and self loathing that comes with most people's adolescence and sexual discovery.

Brown is a Canadian artist who began self publishing before gaining a wider audience and proper publishing from Drawn and Quarterly.
