Life sucks when you're a teenager, at least according to teenagers. What with all the drama to keep up with on MySpace and the fact that Dad put a GPS tracker on your cell phone (Dad!!! ), there's never been a worse time to endure adolescence. So come with me back to a more innocent era, the 20th century, when the daily life of teenagers wasn't documented in real time by Twitter posts about Facebook, but in the pulp-paper pages of comic books. In Teen Angst A-Go-Go!, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater reads verbatim from midcentury comics, vintage radio show–style, to illustrate that, while the pop-culture medium may change, the message is the same: Teenagers are solipsistic idiots. LOL!
