"Bumperhead follows Bobby, a young slacker who narrates his life as it happens but offers very little reflection on the events that transpire. He lives in the moment exclusively and is incapable of seeing the world outside of his experiences. He comes of age in the 1970s, making a rapid progression through that era's different subcultures and in a short period of time segues from a stoner glam rocker to a drunk rocker to a speed-freak punk. He drifts in and out of relationships with friends, both male and female. Life zooms past him"--publisher's web site.

I'm a fan of the work by Gilbert Hernandez and was excited to find this at the BPL.
Perhaps because it is partially autobiographical, or perhaps it is told through the eyes of a slacker, but the story to me was unengaging and superficial. There were aspects of magical realism like an iPad that appears in the 1970s to predict the future, but to what end?
