While the story is officially set in the high-school milieu of the early s, its protagonists appear to be stuck in the early s for some reason. The title "Blue Monday" is an homage to the obviously completely awesome!
New Order hit from , main character Bleu is a huge fan of new wave icon Adam Ant, and the mod revival of the same period finds expression in almost everybody's wardrobe "The Kids Are Alright" is also the title of the Who's original mids mod anthem, of course. Why While the story is officially set in the high-school milieu of the early s, its protagonists appear to be stuck in the early s for some reason.
Why a teenager of the 's would be crazy about earlys pop culture I do not know, but being a child of the 80s myself I ain't complaining - after all, I still have a few Adam Ant 45's in my own less than mature record collection The story? Well, Shakespeare it ain't, but I found its unpretentious happy-go-lucky celebration of peer and pop culture charming and enjoyable enough.
The sense of silly high-energy fun is all-pervasive, thanks in no small part to the fast-paced, carefree, manga-esque artwork. Well, I really didn't like this one. The art was somehow OK but the characters were unpleasant. I didn't like any of them. The idea of egging or throwing toilet paper on a tree as a retaliation That's not a funny way to keep the story going.
Apart from the musical references, I didn't have the feeling that we were in the early s.

And I couldn't understand why the author used such a weird spelling for some words.
And yeah, if this is supposed to ba a manga-like comics Life's too short to read bad comics I'll donate this one to the library with no regrets at all!

And oh my gosh was that a mistake. The artwork was fine when not depicting teenage girls in their undergarments or wearing shirts that show off their balloon-breasts.
But the dialog and the story First of all, I could not figure out if Victor and Alan were friends or just guys who follow the main characters around and sexually harass them.

The whole Garbage. The whole prank war in the first chapter and having "panty shots" of Clover is beyond messed up. I also hated that the females just put up with it. When the boys are outside the window, watching them get dressed, they just tell them to go get ready. I almost threw this trash across the room. Scene after awkwardly-horrible scene depicts the teenage girls being degraded wet t-shirt contest? They get mad, but they don't usually speak out against any of the harassment. I am so disappointed that I actually bought this. I'm not sure if this was supposed to point out sexism's existence since it really didn't play into the plot very much, but if anything it trivialized it.
It makes sexual harassment a joke. It gives the message that it's okay to comment of a female's breast size, big or small.
Welcome to the Salon
It says voyeurism is normal and funny. It is degrading and demeaning. I can't believe I wasted time and money on this. At least I know now that Clugston's other works are not for me.go site
The short stories at the end were no better. I think "Cuntageously Yours" sums it up pretty well, in which one of the guys accidentally asks an "unattractive" girl to a dance. The only reason I got through this awful thing was because I told myself once I posted a review, I could actually throw the book. Update: Throwing the book across the room has made me feel slightly better about my loss of time. I will never get those minutes back, but at least I got to throw something.
The only other time I've ever throw a book was when I sunk to reading Twlight, so take from that what you will. I won a copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway, and I'd have to say it's the single coolest book I've obtained that way so far.

It's certainly a thrill to get a package from Image Comics and know that it contains free stuff I loved it then, so it's no surprise that I love this version. It's been colored, and bonus materials, short stories and such, have been added, but this is the same Blue Monday we al I won a copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway, and I'd have to say it's the single coolest book I've obtained that way so far.

It's been colored, and bonus materials, short stories and such, have been added, but this is the same Blue Monday we all know and love. Bleu Finnegan and her friends are fifteen, and obsessed with British pop from all eras, the 60's through the 90's at least--not too surprising considering all these stories appeared during the 90's.
They play pranks, dread substitute teachers, go to shows, and just generally have fun. Bleu certainly has better taste in music than I did at that age.

It's delightful, and I'm always happy to visit Bleu and her friends. Kieron Gillen's introduction, new to this edition, is worth the price of the book all by itself. Welllll, I did not like this one much at all. To me it basically felt like Archie which I also do not like , but way grosser. There are a lot of nasty pranks, a lot of sexual harassment, and a lot of just plain meanness here, and I didn't really end up liking any of the characters. At all. Plus, the setting really confused me. It seems they are in America I think in California? I couldn't connect with anything her Welllll, I did not like this one much at all.
I couldn't connect with anything here, other than once having had a friend who was also obsessed with Adam Ant. Not planning on reading more of this one.

Unfortuantely I really didn't care for it at all. It was taking the 80s troupe of high school girls and making them into Brit pop and post punk 80s music. But it was just SO suburban American and the kids were so straight laced it hurt! The first three adventures were basically rock and roll high school retold and cleaned up!

The young 15 year old, doesn't drink, doesn't smoke and definitely doesn't have sex, is obsessed with getting free tickets to see Adam Ant in concert. I mean it was obviously the authors tribute to things she liked, but it was just boring, it was like despite loving all this music, they'd not actually understood the point of any of the lyrics!
It was in all ways the opposite of Love and Rockets. View 2 comments. See other items More See all. Item information Condition:.
