Someone Please Have Sex with Me (Paperback)
Gina Wynbrandt is brutally, viciously self-effacing in this collection of semi-fictionalized auto-bio comics. She struggles with her body image and raging horniness with an unflinching honesty that pushes the funny/awkward line right to the breaking point. It's also quite fun to look at; the candy-colored pink and blue lines keep you feeling like it's all in good fun, even at it's darkest moments.— Chris Andersen
Gina Wynbrandt's debut graphic novel is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration, shot through with American pop-culture erudition.
"It's impossible not to fall in love with this hilarious minx as she lunges across the page, nostrils flared, hurling herself into increasingly ridiculous romantic misadventures. Bow down to Gina as she explores what it means to be horny as hell " -- Lisa Hanawalt, production designer/producer of BoJack Horseman, author of My Dirty Dumb Eyes
"Someone Please Have Sex With Me plays with conventions of style and color, featuring pleasingly feminine sherbet-y tones juxtaposed against a storyline about a woman looking for love in all the wrong places--in all the wrong ways." -- The LA Times
"Smart, wickedly funny, and transgressive. More comics like this, please " -- John Porcellino, author of The Hospital Suite
Someone Please Have Sex With Me is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration from our young heroine and author. From failed erotic photoshoots and late-onset teen popstar obsessions to fairy Kardashians and Pokemon-inspired future-sex, Wynbrandt isn't one to hold back. SPHSWM finds its footing at the surreal and hilarious juncture between autobiography and fantasy.
