I was introduced to Lauren Barnett via her comic “was that supposed to be funny” which came to me via this awesome blog I was writing for at the time, Feminist Review. I was immediately hooked by Lauren’s honest and peculiar humor especially when delivered through the thoughts and actions of non-humans. Apples with self-esteem issues, Grapes who love to dance and F bomb dropping Birds. Fuck yeah! Lauren just published a collection; a greatest hits of web comics showcasing the many personalities of birds, fish, fruits, and vegetables. Lauren leaves humans out of it, yet it is the humanity of these characters – their meanness, tenderness, absurdity – will keep you checking her website for the daily new comics.
Warning: There are lots of fucks and shits. Another reason I love it.
Lauren’s based out of NYC but you can get a copy of this collection at Chicago Comics or here.
Very cute. Word to the wise, if you search “LAUREN BARNETT” on Tumblr, you’ll find a couple of her comics and a handful of… well… graphic bondage posts.
Wishing I could unsee that
Oh no! Also, kind of hilare
