Very moving, beautifully written and expressively drawn account of one small circle of friends' efforts to survive the AIDS crisis in the '80s. Shows how far we've come, yes, in reducing homophobia and democratizing health services, but also how painfully costly those gains were. It's a great use of the graphic novel form: an artful blending of words and pictures.
