Review for Bird Brain: Comics About Mental Health, Starring Pigeons

Comic, Mental Health, Bird Brain: Comics About Mental Health Starring Pigeons, Bird Brain, Chuck Mullin, Pigeon, Mirror, YellowI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I have been reading Bird Brains comics for some time now ever since I saw them pop up on my feed when they were retweeted by someone else. I fell in love with the style (the pigeon with floating eyes), but also with the comics and what they told/what they are about.

Because these comics are about mental health. In this book it is done in sections, we see how it all started, how it got worse, how things were not good, and how there was a note of positivity at the end. It wasn’t always easy to read due how bad things got, and to see the darkness just swallow up everything. See the desperation in the pigeon. Though I got a smile at the last comics which showed us that it was getting better, slowly, but you could see more sunshine, more happiness, and that made me happy.

However…. I came for comics, I thought it was only comics (bundled from online), but there were also essays/written parts. And sorry, while they were good and I thought the author was very brave to write those down next to the comics, I soon skipped them. Again, I came for comics, I wasn’t in the mood for 2-3 page long essays/written parts. Hopefully this doesn’t offend anyone, and otherwise sorry. Maybe one day I will read this book again and then I will read the written parts.

All in all, I am still very happy I tried this book and I will definitely keep on supporting the author/illustrator, and I want to wish them all the best, I hope there will be more and more happiness and positivity in their life.
