Abe: Wrong for All the Right Reasons

If you're not familiar with Dakin's work, Glenn has, for the last nineteen years, been one of England's best alternative comics creators. ABE is not only regarded as a milestone in the world of fanciful autobiography, but it's a must read for fans of ALEC or anyone who's interested...

Wry, funny, philosophical

In a way, this collection reminds me a bit of "My Dinner With Andre," in that it also examines life from many angles, often through tiny details & absurd situations, while leaving the reader with much food for thought afterwards. It's also fascinating as a chronicle of the growth of the artist, following his work from its earliest days through nearly two decades. Enjoyable from the first, it grows in subtlety with the passage of time, delving into more serious material without losing its charm or sense of humor. Additionally, it's a delight to watch his development as an artist -- it's just amazing how much feeling he can put into the deceptive simplicity of his work! I see that this is listed as Volume 1, so I can only hope that Volume 2 will be coming along eventually. Glenn Dakin is good company, a fine storyteller, and he'll leave you both amused & a bit wiser for the time spent with him. Highly recommended!


This is just a great collection of comics from Glenn Dakin. It's cool to read about a cartoon character with such down to earth thoughts and feelings. If your curiosity has gotten you far enough to read this review, I would definitely recommend giving the book a shot.
