Freddie and Me is a wonderfully funny and moving graphic memoir of Mike Dawson's lifelong obsession with Freddie Mercury and Queen. Told alternately from Mike's childhood, teenage and adult perspectives, Freddie and Me explores the way in which music changes and shapes our lives, and the way in which random memories can both prop up and undermine the stories we tell ourselves. The counterpoint toMike's obsession is his younger sister's love of George Michael and Wham including several deliciously funny imagined scenes featuring a post-break-up Andrew Ridgeley which, like the book as a whole, is written and drawn with a brilliant combination of exuberance and subtlety.
