Life is weird. Embrace it. A bear flies through space. A hamster suffers a breakdown. A child marvels at the wonder of nature as worms emerge from the ground to look for vodka (as they always have). Elsewhere, a garden snake is arrested by animal control and jailed for home invasion. These are common occurrences in the world of Reza Farazmand’s wildly popular webcomic, Poorly Drawn Lines. Traveling from deep space to alternate realities to the bottom of the ocean, this collection includes fan favorites alongside never-before-seen comics and original essays. For the first time, Farazmand shares his inimitable take on love, nature, social acceptance, and robots.

I received an ARC of this novel through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


OK, this was hilarious.

Farazmand writes and draws comics with simplicity. I loved the tone of the book and  I was actually muffling giggles while reading this in a bookstore.

This short, humorous book can be read in about 30 minutes if read straight through. The comedy style may not be for everyone, but I do believe everyone can find the humor in the least one comic strip in the book.

Not much else to say. It was a funny book. I laughed. Mission accomplished.
