    1. A pair of alienated teen-aged boys, Wolf and Mike, drop acid one summer looking for a life-altering experience, but end up with a reality altering experience that changes little in their lives.The trip doesn’t go much beyond heightening their sense of disassociation with things and increasing their paranoia.Much of it is told from the perspective of Wolf, a kid who’s able to think about what he’s going through, but never able, sadly, to articulate it with anyone.The spare black and white a [...]

    2. A heart-on-the sleeves account of a recently graduated, overweight mope who goes on a spur-of-the-acid-fueled-moment day trip to the beach with his chain-smoking, lanky buddy. Several moments of tripped-out awkwardness follow.Being a teenager sucks. Being fat sucks. Girls are scary and Parents are the worst. Nobody wants to die alone. When is life going to start feeling meaningful?Since reading, have had Husker Du's (sorry, no umlauts) album New Day Rising stuck in me head all day long - which i [...]

    3. “Sad bastard comics” sounds like a derogatory label but it’s not, at least not to me – I like sad bastard comics! Seth and Jason both create sad bastard comics and I love Seth and Jason’s work (I highly recommend It’s a Good Life If You Don’t Weaken by Seth, and The Left Bank Gang by Jason – melancholic but beautiful comics).Charles Forsman’s Celebrated Summer is along the same lines of those great cartoonists’ work, exploring themes of nostalgia and loneliness as two teens, [...]

    4. Two anti-heroic guys have a sad acid trip while taking a tiny road trip. The leading sad-sack is nostalgically looking back at this day, not because things were better then, but because he sees it as a kind of crossroads. The moment he could, perhaps, still have chosen to take a path other than the one he's traveling (one of debilitating social anxiety and unfulfilled dreams). It's a short, atmospheric, painful little book and also beautiful in its attention to minute social and family dynamics [...]

    5. A pretty meager demonstration of adolescent wandering. Lots of acid tripping, not much of a story. A brief glimpse into an overweight character named Wolf's self esteem issues. It wasn't bad; I just wanted more substantial development of characters and plot.

    6. Two young “losers” go on a road trip.I found this story very simply, but effect – especially the isolation / regrets of the physically ‘large’ character.

    7. I only read this maybe a week or two ago, and I remember being pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. But the fact that (even after flipping through the pages) I don't remember basically anything about it other than the aesthetic chalks it up as forgettable. I do remember I read it in about a half hour one morning.It's the story of two guys on drugs. I do remember appreciating the window into their brains, particularly the kid who used to be a bully. I feel like it's a perspective we don't [...]

    8. Very spare story, very spare art, of two guys in their late teens, maybe 20, who decide one evening to drop acid and then take a road trip to the beach, stay out all night…. Not much happens, which is pretty much the point, slice of life, and at the end we look back on this night… I like slice of life minimalism, but this is really minimal….

    9. A nice little book, though not much happens honestly. I enjoyed it for the art, more than anything. I'm just not a big fan of these kinds of stories where friends get high together and then wonder around. Still, the art is really top notch.

    10. Pretty barebones in the story-telling dept but a book that creates isolated feelings from characters trying to escape isolation is a book that doesn't have to try too hard, but succeeds anyways. I wish there was more here, though. Breezing thru in about 20 min makes some of th more experimental parts feel like wasted paper, but the char interaction (or lack thereof) during th trip on the trip makes up for it. I wish there was more here, though. The black and white works pretty well in psychedeli [...]

    11. I love comics where it feels like I'm spying on people. in this case it feels like you're spying on someone's momentary nostalgia for a time that wasn't so great in retrospect, but it still feels like it was great. forsman gets the feeling of hot lazy restlessness right, and also the power dynamic between teenage friends.

    12. A slow-paced graphic novel of two teens, who recently finished school, taking a road trip after dropping acid. Their conversations explore the fears of entering adulthood and the existential phase following the conclusion of a major part of one's life.

    13. When I was young, a friend referred to that period of burnout after a LSD trip as being “crisp.” CELEBRATED SUMMER by Charles Forsman is crisp. It’s weirdly mundane, hilariously sad and unsentimentally sentimental about that early time in one’s life when dropping acid and going on a road trip was boringly exhilarating. Forsman switches his drawing style from comic to comic, and the deceptively simple line drawings here are some of my favorites. I could have followed his sad sacks anywher [...]

    14. Cool insight into masculinity that I wasn’t expecting to enjoy as much. Well paced and chilled out. I like books about friendships and wandering around at night. I guess the only thing I didn’t like was the art style.

    15. A fairly by-the-numbers bio-comic. Nothing much to say or impart to its audience, and by the end, is unlikely to have left much of an impact.

    16. I picked up this one solely because of an AV Club recommendation. If I'd had a chance to look through it a comics shop, I probably wouldn't have ended up reading it. But seeing as I'd ordered it from the libraryIt was ok, but I'm not really into depictions of drug trips, acid or not. I also found the idea of only using black and white to depict an acid trip a bit limiting. I can't really say i enjoyed it, even if the last few pages did redeem it a bit.

    17. A rather sad and in some ways a rather profound work. It very much leans more toward the 'art' than 'literary' and sometimes becomes a bit self indulgent but I rather enjoyed this work. I did leave this work wanting to give Wolf a hug though. Poor guy.

    18. Estoy muy de acuerdo con esta reseña escrita por quien me prestó esta hermosísima novela gráfica. Si pueden, leánla, es un golpe al corazón: desdelglobo/celebrated-sum

    19. Wasted youth and no goals for adulthood. I think this is an on going challenge for many young adults in America.
