A Bar, a Car and a Someone with whom to Spar (Book II Bonus)

The place to let everyone know how well-read and sophisticated you are because you read Out There. Because, you know, it's that kinda strip. Sophisticated. And junk.

A Bar, a Car and a Someone with whom to Spar (Book II Bonus)

Kudos for the bonus backstory in the Out There Volume 2 book. The shaded artwork is nicely done, and I really like the strobelight-like pacing of the story. Those strips prove that sometimes less is definitely more.

Miriam's expressions in panels 11 and 19 speak volumes.

Buy this book.

I just bought the first one and it took 3 weeks to get here, but I love it. Now I just have to find the means of getting the second one... Since the first one was a gift, my Paypal is ridiculous and doesn't like to send money.

I made this a "sticky" because I thought it might be getting lost in the shuffle. Plus I was curious to see if anyone else has bought the book.

I'm very impressed by The Next Round bonus story. It's nice to get a bonus in these type of comic collections that actually deepen your understanding of the characters.
SPOILERS:It's a really great story showing the evolution of teenage Miriam on her way to becoming the libertine we all know and love. That and it's an atypical format and storytelling style for RC, but just as well crafted as his daily work.
Just further proof (as if any were needed) of the man's versatility and creativity.
