Adulthood Is a Myth: A “Sarah’s Scribbles” Collection by Sarah Andersen
Are you a special snowflake? Do you enjoy networking to advance your career? Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared?
Ugh. Please go away.
This book is for the rest of us. These comics document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas, and wondering when, exactly, this adulthood thing begins. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life.
Adulthood Is a Myth is a collection of comics that will appeal to almost any awkward, introverted, semi-adult girl. It depicts everyday struggles such as dressing yourself, talking to people, and dealing with hormones— but also celebrates the things that make an introvert happiest.
The lighthearted humor of Adulthood Is a Myth is mostly derived from the emotions, thoughts, and motivations of an introvert, which are admittedly a bit strange. I often find myself saying “Oh, that is SO me!” when I read these comics. It’s nice to know there are other people out there in the world as weird and wonderful as me.
While you can probably find most (if not all) of the comics in Adulthood Is a Myth floating around on the internet, I think it’s important to support artists whom you love. Plus, the front cover has a fuzzy sweater that you can pet. You can’t do that on the internet.
