    One thought on “Someone Please Have Sex With Me”

    1. Hilarious alternative comics collection about/by a horny (and she calls herself) fat woman. One story is about a very funny obsession she has about Justin Bieber, though she has these obsessions about lots of celebrities. Lots of Hip Hop stars. And also, Pokemon? Cats? She dedicates the book “to every man who never had sex with me. I couldn’t have written this book without you.” This comic is as you might expect a bit graphic, sure, which will either put you off or be part of the fun, but [...]

    2. Bold, clever, raunchy parody of our obsession with celebrity culture: a bit on the raw and arbitrary side, but pretty funny in places.

    3. By blurring the line between the autobiography & the fiction and the real & the surreal with her detailed portrait drawings, Wynbrandt brilliantly re-appropriates pop / nerd (especially comics' own autobio genre) culture's sex objectification. So glad to find the comics work that reflects the zeitgeist greatly and powerfully. must read.

    4. I think I'm mildly traumatized by the stuff with the cats, but this is a very funny and charming little book, by an extremely talented young cartoonist.

    5. Hilariously good fun combined with prickly honesty and self deprecation - I cackled my way through it. Not so much a collected narrative as a series of vignettes, one more absurd than the other - but the visuals tie it all together (I never thought I'd like a pink-favouring colour palette this much!) It's balls out, guns ablaze, which is a refreshing take on touchy subjects and autograhics.I initally hesitated on my rating, because somehow it feels 'light' and 'not serious enough' for five stars [...]

    6. I'm not sure what is happening but I like it. A coworker handed this to me and said, "this is kinda weird, I think you will like it." Who can argue with that?

    7. After reading the title story in this collection of short pieces, my sides hurt from laughing. I look forward to more of Gina Wynbrandt's work. She incisively mocks herself, celebrities, and millennial social media culture. I would personally recommend this book to everyone I know, but I am going to generally recommend it here so that no one takes personal offense at me saying "You, reader. Yes, you! You really have to read 'Someone Please Have Sex With Me.' It is necessary that you read this."

    8. wow I loved this book. I have never read this story before, this books has everything you want cats, sailor moon, justin beiber (?), it's bizarre and wonderful, if you have a sense of humor you're going to enjoy it.

    9. A collection of several short pieces revolving around the author's experience with the opposite sex. It reminded me of Unloveable byEsther Pearl Watson in spirit.Didn't enjoy it as much as I expected after reading an excerpt inThe Best American Comics 2015, but that's probably because of the fragmentary nature of a collection like this. I identified with the author's very specific feelings of frustration. I'm in a much more satisfied place currently, but have been there in the past. Since the ti [...]

    10. I didn't love this as much as everyone else seems to. I can't put my finger on why, exactly. Sorry, that's not very helpful, is it? Don't hate me.That said, some of the drawings & made me laugh, and it is overall very funny. Especially liked the last story of the bunch.

    11. Jessie, Fun, gutsy and kind of gross graphic novel. The need, the misguidedness, the colors, the drawings. What a girl/woman disaster. She is worth meeting and then being thankful you have never been there so fully or have passed that life stage by or whatever. Your friend, Hobs

    12. I really appreciate this book's weirdness. It gives form to some common deviant thoughts (I've certainly had some of them) that are rarely voiced. However, that same weirdness kept me from enjoying it as much as I might have otherwise. It's very "in your face." It feels weird to say this to a book, but it's not you. It's me.A super-interesting look at millennial arrested development.

    13. This made me laugh so hard. The illustrations are able to mash realism with a kind of total absurdity. Despite not sharing too many superficial characteristics with her, I felt like I related to the way her insecurities spun off into wild and self-effacing fantasies. Definitely matches my anxiety and sense of humor.

    14. This was an awesome little comic. Gina really captured how awkward it can be growing up and I found myself laughing out loud through the whole book. I can't wait to read more of Gina's comics. She is a great illustrator and story teller.

    15. The illustrations and commentary were fun and relatable. I laughed out loud more than once and in the time it took me to read it, I started a list of who I wanted to lend it to when I was done.

    16. The words, "graphic novel" refer to the way certain books are put together. A novel, told through graphic, visual means. Often this medium lends itself to subjects that are hard to accept rationally: violence, superheros, talking animals, etc. The hard truths of the world explained to us through fantasy and pictures. Gina Wynbrandt uses this medium to proclaim and cope with her world. Half autobiographical caricature, half desperate acid trip action movie, Someone Please Have Sex with Me communi [...]
