Review for Herding Cats

Review for Herding Cats

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

The third book by Sarah Andersen, collecting all her newest works + more! I was delighted when I spotted this book over on Netgalley. The covers and titles are getting better (and sillier) with each and every book. I can’t wait to see what the next title/cover will be.:P

Like with each book so far I haven’t found a comic I haven’t read, well, maybe one or two, as I sometimes don’t see her new comic on my timeline on Twitter. But do I mind? Nah, I don’t. I just adore that I can re-read them without having to go through her Twitter.

This time not so much menstrual cycles and more anxiety and sadness. They all hit quite close home for me. 🙁 One that also stood out was the stove comic. When I saw it on her Twitter, I had the same reaction. I was both sad and happy. Sad, because it sucks that there are more people who have this problem and it is not a fun one. Happy, because I know now that there are more people like me. That I am not alone with this behaviour.

After the normal comics we get an extra part. She tells us with text and comics about art, about drawing, about criticism on the internet, anxiety over drawing/posting something, and more. I definitely love that this was added. I am not adding art to the internet, but some of the parts (internet and harassment/criticism) hit quite close to me.

All in all, definitely recommended. Be warned this may hit close home. You may experience a ton of feelings and nod along with the comics. Of course you will also laugh as there are enough moments were the comics are more comedy (like the ones with her cat).
