A group of friends graduate college, start "real" jobs, and begin thinking "This is it? This is the rest of my life?" Gee, that sounds a might bit familiar. The art here is adorable, and the characters are charming and hilarious. The story is good too, but the characters are what really make this worth reading. It was also made into a movie (trailer), which I can hardly wait to download and watch. The life of the grown-up is so unpleasant!
