Dan Clowes writes stories whose main characters are typically painfully awkward jerks, and there are some really painful moments in this one. But I really liked how it developed. Give it a look.
By the way, the Times does a weird thing on these comics pages. They put the LAST page of the book FIRST. So, skip that first link labeled 'Conclusion', read starting with chapter 1, through to the end (and note that though the links list 2 chapter 18s, it's really ch18 and ch19). Then after reading the last one, go back to the first link and read that one. Yes, it's worth it.
