This is beautifully illustrated - and that's about it. There is very little going for this book otherwise.
With character designs supposedly by Ai Yazawa, one of my favorite manga artists, I had high hopes for the series. But then, it is written - or at least greatly suggested - by Courtney Love, and I'm not sure that I've ever believed she had great creative abilities. But as I'm sure that the majority of the work was done by Misaho Kujiradou, I'm trying to ignore Love's involvement.

But.
What we have here could easily be how Love views her musical career through a drug addicted haze. I suppose that's a horrible thing to say, but it's true. This character seems to come across as Courtney Love, the alter-ego. She has similar dress styles and even physically resembles her.

The storyline itself is rather bland, and can be read in another review. The character just wasn't captivating enough for me, so while the manga is beautifully drawn, the story itself falls flat.
