I Never Liked You Background[edit] Brown had switched publishers to the Montreal-based Drawn and Quarterly by the time he completed his first autobiographical graphic novel, The Playboy, in 1992. At first, he intended The Playboy and I Never Liked You to form one story, but found it too complex to handle when he started to plan it out. The Playboy deals with Brown's guilt over his teenage obsession with masturbating over pornography. Synopsis[edit] The story is set during Brown's 1970s adolescence in Châteauguay, a suburb of Montreal. Chet plays games such as hide-and-seek with the neighbourhood children. Chet is interested in Sky, a large-breasted dark-haired girl two years younger who lives next door, about whom he has masturbatory fantasies. Publication[edit] I Never Liked You was originally serialized under the title Fuck, in issues #26–30 of Yummy Fur, between October 1991 and April 1993. Drawn and Quarterly issued a collected edition in 1994, changing the title from Fuck to I Never Liked You.
