    1. Not my cup of tea. Was not fond of the art, it was pretty mundane story-wise. It's such an interesting point of view that I feel like there are some deeper insights Libicki could have gotten into, but the historical moments felt copied and pasted and I wanted to know a bit more about how she interacted with people other than the ones she was sort hooking up with. I think the sexuality question could have been more interesting, given her religious background, but this seemed to only start to open [...]



    2. The strength here is the artwork: roundish, chunky bodies with big eyes. Very soothing to look at.Neat portrayal of the mundane aspects of military life, while terrible shit is happening. She clearly feels like she's helping if only by doing her small part.Content notes for young men being obnoxious, weird hetero ideas about virginity. And Jian Ghomeshi makes and appearance--this probably was published before his very public downfall.


    3. A coming-of-age story about a misfit girl who is serving in the Israeli Army during the Second Intifada. Sounds like a sure bet right?Unfortunately I found the story pretty dull. I understand the author can do nothing but relate the events as they happened but they mostly centered around bad relationships or melancholy spells, neither of which made for page-turning reading. There's a lengthy, equally uninteresting tangent regarding her attendance of Moxy Früvous concerts. And even for a comic b [...]


    4. I guess I expected more from this book than what it actually was. Jobnik is a derogatory slang term used by Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for non combat soldiers like desk clerks. At 18 an American Jewish girl decides to join the IDF. I expected more of a story about a girl struggling with the change, but it ends up just being more of a journal of things that happen, and not always connected or with a flowing narrative. Then there is a pencil art work. Only drawn and colored with pencil, and at so [...]


    5. When reflecting on this book, I can definitely see its merits. It portrays the very personal reaction to a devastating and complicated war on a realistic and understated character. Following that character through her battles with self-esteem and intimacy leads the reader through a touching journey that is simple and reflective. It's a good book. However, I cannot honestly say that I enjoyed reading it. It was a quick read that had touching moments, but was overall a little too understated and q [...]


    6. Great art. Intriguing concept. Story a bit fuzzy. Lots of great panels and vignettes within her story, but there are gaps in the narrative - her mental illness, why exactly she joined the army Then the ending just ends. I look forward to reading more of her work to see how she develops her storytelling skills, but this title is a bit raw.


    7. Kind of a self-serving chronicle about.I'm not actually sure what. I couldn't really derive a narrative anywhere amongst the pages except for some oral sex and maybe a displaced abject commentary? I don't know.wouldn't recommend.


    8. A very interesting art style, but the narrative somehow seems starry-eyed and slow even in the midst of Israeli-Palestinian fighting. Some really solid page design in certain parts.
