Big Mushy Happy Lump

Big Mushy Happy Lump 
By Sarah Andersen
Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2017. 128 pages. Graphic Novel

Sarah Andersen's Sarah's Scribbles comics are hugely popular, and last year's book Adulthood is a Myth won the 2016 Goodreads Choice Award for Graphic Novels and Comics.  She is back again with a new book and dozens of new comics, as well as a few illustrated personal essays on some of her real-life experiences and how they influenced her work.

I enjoy Andersen's self-deprecating humor and find her very easy to relate to. She is also open about issues that she struggles with such as anxiety and lack of confidence, and I appreciate her bringing attention to those issues and helping people to understand them better.  This is a quick read but humorous and uplifting.
