Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.
A collection of Loryn Brantz’s vibrant and relatable Jellybean Comics about her everyday experiences as a lady
Home manicure tips, awkward seduction techniques, scoping out the snack table, and—most important—prioritizing naps: Lady Stuff reveals these womanly secrets and more. In sections like “Grooming and Habitat Maintenance,” “Mating Habits,” and others, these brightly colored, adorable comics find the humor in the awkwardness of simply existing.
Like the work of Sarah Andersen, Gemma Correll, and Allie Brosh, Loryn Brantz’s Jellybean Comics are accessible and funny; lighthearted takes on the author’s everyday experiences and struggles being a woman.
Like many of you, I’ve seen this author’s work on Facebook and other social media platforms as memes but did not realize that when requesting this book for review. What pulled me in was the title and description, also the fact that it was a read now title on Net Galley. I decided to take a shot and see what this book was all about.
What I received was a fun little read that was quite clever and poignant at times. Besides being totally funny I found myself thinking oh yeah I totally get that. These illustrations are going to be so relatable to any woman, this would make an excellent gift for your best girlfriend! Not very long but well done this book also worked well on my e-reader, perhaps the only time that a graphic novel book worked for me!
Not much more I can say beyond that. It was a fun read that would make a great gift!
