By Justin Green

A misplaced vintage of underground cartooning, Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin
Mary is Justin Green’s autobiographical portrayal of his fight with
religion and his personal neuroses. Binky Brown is a tender Catholic fighting all
the traditional difficulties of adolescence—puberty, mom and dad, and the phobia that the
strange ray of strength emanating from his inner most elements will strike a picture
of the Virgin Mary. Deeply confessional, with paintings that veers wildly
between formalist and hallucinogenic, Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary
is the arguable masterpiece that invented the autobiographical graphic
novel.

And I knew I was good because our teacher always picked my work to show the class as a good example.

I was certain their friendship would turn out to be very important for my whole life. I had so much to learn. I couldn’t swim and I didn’t know how to handle a fish and I thought it was up to these fellows to teach me. I was extremely proud to be with them. We walked back by a different route.
