Sarah Andersen's hugely popular, world-famous Sarah's Scribbles comics are for those of us who boast bookstore-ready bodies and Netflix-ready hair, who are always down for all-night reading-in-bed parties and extremely exclusive after-hour one-person music festivals. 

In addition to the most recent Sarah's Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah's real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah's Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form.

Reviewed by PW Annex Reviews (Publishers Weekly Annex Reviews)

In this second collection of her popular Sarah's Scribbles strips, Andersen treads familiar ground: the ravages of the menstrual cycle, the glee and comfort of love, the sting of social anxiety. But beneath the humor, there is heartfelt honesty about making one's unsteady way through life. Succinct, easily disseminated odes to the quotidian struggles of millennial life are common in cartooning, but Andersen has perfected—and, in fact, elevated—this form. Andersen tempers her observations with silliness, but they are never less than astute; she is particularly sharp when skewering the absurd beauty standards modern women must navigate. Here is work that has been sharpened to a fine point: smart, warm, cutting, and clever. This volume is a witty comfort from beginning to end. (Mar.)
