Set in the world of young artists, dreamers, drinkers, layabouts, and dime-store deep thinkers of bohemian Allston, Massachusetts, Whatever--originally published serially in The Boston Phoenix--are revealing snapshots of real-life urban America at the dawn of the 21st century. In addition to The Phoenix strips, Whatever features a number of exquisite color pieces expertly rendered in watercolor.
