That said, An Age of License is not just a series of dashed-off drawings. With that book, we reach the Lucy Knisley singularity, where the time between something happening to Lucy Knisley and Lucy Knisley writing a book about it shrinks to zero and flips over into the future (although the wedding will be over by the time she finishes the book). Who knows what the consequences of this will be?

Acclaimed cartoonist Lucy Knisley got an opportunity that most only dream of: a travel-expenses-paid trip Europe/Scandinavia, thanks to a book tour. An Age of License is Knisley’s comics travel memoir recounting her charming (and romantic!) adventures. It’s punctuated by whimsical visual devices (such as a “new experiences” funnel); peppered with the cute cats she meets along the way; and, of course, features her hallmark ― drawings and descriptions of food that will make your mouth water. But it’s not all kittens and raclette crepes: Knisley’s experiences are colored by anxieties, introspective self-inquiries, and quotidian revelations ― about traveling alone in unfamiliar countries, and about her life and career ― that many young adults will relate to. An Age of License ― which takes its name from a French saying ― is an Eat, Pray, Love for the alternative comics fan.

If you're expecting a very structured story, I'd say check out 'Something New: Tales of a Makeshift Bride' by this artist for a more full 'narrative'. An Age of License is very much a travelogue at its core as stated on the cover. It feels redundant to say, but more than a few people have likely stepped into this book expecting something a bit more traditional only to be sorely disappointed.

This book is a series of loosely connected events during Lucy's trip. She doesn't jump around randomly in telling where she is, but things aren't tightly woven together in the way any other more fictionalized graphic novel would be. An Age of License is more about the journey and the emotional spectrum of figuring out new things about yourself. Lucy's feelings about what is happening around her at the time, realizations about her life as a whole, and her personal relationships are explored in a very loose but satisfying manner here. A prime example of this is the fact Lucy doesn't delve supremely deeply on the hurt of her break up, but we know more than enough to sympathize with her plight. We understand how she's feeling about it and why she's genuinely conflicted on what the future will be like. How she's attracted to Henrik but still very much hung up on her ex (now husband amusingly enough) and is working her way through those feelings whilst basking in traveling.

The only con I have over all is my book arrived with very minor damage to the top of the book and spine. Primarily colors being scrapped off the binding and the top front cover of the comic having a bit of a weird dent to it. Nothing too bad.

This is the first of Knisley's graphic novels that I have read, and while for the first bit I was a bit unconvinced, by the end I felt connected to and moved by it. Knisley has done several travelogues in comics, a sub-genre I wasn't familiar with before (perhaps she invented it?), and her illustration style is perfect for it. Her lines are simple and clean, and she is able to capture foreign places in a very appealing way. She is also an admitted foodie, and there are several loving pages of pictures of food.

The narrative is a familiar one -- a young American traveling around Europe soaking up new experiences and contemplating life -- but Knisley is not a shallow writer. The most compelling parts deal with Knisley's own thoughts on her luck and privilege in life and how that shapes her life and how she views the places she visits and the people she encounters. I have traveled alone and with company throughout my life -- I'm a decade older than Ms. Knisley -- and I identified with a lot of it.

Her watercolor paintings and full-color sketches of some scenes and portraits of her friends contrast nicely with the simple black-and-white style of the main narrative.

"The French have a saying for the time when you're young and experimenting with your lives and careers. They call it: L' Age License...as in license to experience, mess up, license to fail, license to do...whatever, before you're settled."

I feel like Knisley and I are on personal terms, so I'll just call her "dear Lulu." At this point, I think I would buy just about any graphic novels she publishes from here on out. I have everything she's written thus far, and I guess that makes me a bonafide fan.

In An Age of License: A Travelogue, dear Lulu is at it again, and what she does best is capture her traveling adventures. In the style of French Milk, she documents a month long trip to Norway, Sweden, Germany, France, and Iceland. Along the way, she contemplates where her life is headed, is coping with a recent break-up and new love interest, and trying to figure out if she loves her career as a comic artist despite its meager compensation.

I love Lulu's illustrations, and I just love the way she thinks. She includes linear notes on footnotes, if that's even possible in comic form. Above all else, she is a true foodie, so she always allows panel space to highlight favorite dishes or must have snacks. I think I'm going to reread this tonight. I might have missed something.

This is the first graphic novel I've read from Lucy Knisley and I can see why she's so popular. Lucy is not only a good storyteller but I find her incredibly relatable, honest, and not at all pretentious. The only downside was how quick of a read this was given the thickness of the book :)

I'm a HUGE Lucy Knisley fan so pretty much anything she puts out there will get five stars from me. I won't waste my time going in to why it's so great. It's a beautiful, quirky, tender & authentic travelogue from Lucy Knisley and that should be enough.

3.75/5
Short, fast read. Great illustrations. Not enough substance, but good for a short sit down in between longer books.

I was expecting a full color comic strip similar to Lucy's book, Relish but instead, most of the pages here were black and white linearts. I'm a fan of Lucy's works though so I still enjoyed it a lot. I just wish she would publish another book as detailed (in content and artworks) as Relish. :)
Great text to get young people engaged with the opportunities travel provides for both self-knowledge and world knowledge.
