Item description for Blue Monday, Vol. 1: The Kids Are Alright by Chynna Clugston-Major...
Being a teenager can be a difficult job, something the adult world can never understand. While to her parents and teachers getting Adam Ant tickets is no big deal, to Bleu L. Finnegan it means everything. This could be the defining moment of her life, and there is no guarantee that she will ever achieve it. On the way, Bleu must deal with the travails of adolescence - from prank-playing, porn-addicted boys to sexist-pig radio disc jockeys to trying to figure out how to show that dreamy substitute teacher that she's his perfect mate. It all culminates on that fateful night when Bleu and her best friend, Clover, go to the club and try to get in at any cost! Nothing will bar Bleu from the pop idol of her dreams! Collects the debut mini-series as well as the various short stories that preceded it in independent comic book anthologies.

I WANT MOOOORE CHYNA!! Jun 22, 2008
Funniest, most entertaining read ever. i've bought about 5 copies of volume one, because i always end up giving it to a friend to read.

AH-MAZING! Mar 12, 2008
This was such a good read! I loved the charcters,the animation,and the plot! I love the whole boys vs. girls battle they have! And their plots of revenge are awesome. I now refer to destroying someone's house as Blue Monday-ing it! I can't wait to read the others!
Archie on crack! Nov 15, 2007
Its a cool book just because of the "Kids are all right" arc, but the extras make this a great deal of a comic.

This is the first Blue Monday book, which is about the hijinks of 5 friends in the early 1990s in California. The overarching plot is Bleu Finnegan, our main character trying to get tickets to see her idol Adam Ant. However, much of the plot is also devoted to the various hilarious pranks that the group plays on each other. Chynna Clugston-Major does a really great job of combining sarcasm and gleeful violence with genuine feeling as well as making it often hilariously funny at the same time.

If you love 80's and 90's pop, mod fashion, or just want to look back on your $#!+ hight school years with rose colored glasses (and who doesn't), buy this book!
It's funny, touching, and goofy all in turn -- and overall will just warm your heart. Worth the dough.
