I'd take issue with some of the stray comments about Julio's Day. It's true that Julio's Day originally ran as a series of vignettes in Love and Rockets volume 2 (and a little bit in Volume 3, too). But the book as it now stands really does read like a coherent graphic novel very different than those vignettes. It's very carefully crafted with the major themes (gay identity and the closet, staying home versus seeing the world, family secrets) running through it from start to end. And it's a about a guy who lives a 100 years and is 100 pages long. Beto has pretty carefully assembled the vignettes to make a book -- kind of amazing that it works the way it does. I liked the original vignettes but the book creates a totally new and powerful gestalt. You guys should talk about the book at some future date!
