Review for Super Late Bloomer: My Early Days in Transition

Review for Super Late Bloomer: My Early Days in Transition

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

I have been following Julia Kaye for quite some time now, first on Webtoons around 2015 and later on Twitter when she stopped her Webtoon (which I still think is sad, but I can totally understand the whys).

So most of the comic is not new to me as she has been posting them on Twitter regularly, but I still very much wanted to read them all again. See how it all began. See the process of transitioning, changing her name and getting assigned the right gender, make-up, shaving woes, moments of doubt, misgendering (please people… it is not that hard), and much more. At times I was just tearing up, not only during the sadder moments, but also tears of happiness for her.

I still love her art, it is also very fun to see how much they improved. Not saying they were bad, but these days they are even prettier.

I am happy that I had the opportunity to read these comics bundled as an ARC, I will be buying the book when it comes out in May, I need to have this comic on my bookshelves.

I would like to talk more about the book, but I am still worried that I may say something wrong/make a mistake, so I will just keep it to what I have written so far. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.
