The locations and bodies are exaggerated to reach a more realistic and sensorial state. This is an awesome debut comic."-- Dash Shaw, author of titles such as Cosplayers, Doctors, Bodyworld, and Bottomless Belly Button "Parrish has one of my favourite traits in a cartoonist: intense passion for the craft. They are rapidly evolving and experimenting wildly and it's joyful to watch."-- Simon Hanselmann, author of NY Times bestselling titles such as Megahex and Meg and Mogg in Amsterdam Perfect Hair, the debut graphic novel by Tommi Parrish, is a vivid set of vignettes that balances emotional honesty with a keen cultural awareness.
