I was sent a digital ARC through NetGalley in exchange for my 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.
Through social media, I think most of us have probably encountered these often funny and often very relatable little comics about every day life. The drawings in this book were cute and it was a bonus to see them divided into different sections. However, when you read more than a few of these comics, they start to feel pretty repetitive. Some of the comics were so much alike I felt like I’d seen them before. All in all, this makes for a cute little book, but I do recommend taking it a few comics at a time!
