I do love The Awkward Yeti’s comics and so I couldn’t resist this book about all sorts of health stories, I wasn’t sure what to expect though, other than health and comics. 😛 Let me just tell you, my tumtum isn’t happy with what he read. 😛 I would probably already have been feeling naesous reading about it, but also having graphics and illustrations made things a tad too much. That shell. OMG, ewwwwwwwwwwwwww, or that needle, OMG. And that is just two of the stories.
This book contains 24 stories about bizarre, fascinating and yes, all true health stories. From a trip to the beach ending with a lump to the tooth fairy to a monster inside someone. I liked that we also found out several things about the illness/health problems. I learned quite a few things about things and I love it.
Not all the stories were ones I enjoyed, and no I am not talking about the ones with gross stories and images and photographs, I am talking about those that just didn’t interest me much. And yes there were a handful.
Oh, and at times the stories just seemed to end abruptly. Which I just found a very big shame. At times I was still very much into the story only for it to just end and the next one to begin.
I liked seeing the organs pop by, but also see the humans walk around.
I just loved the art and how well it fits with this book (and in general with the stories that The Awkward Yeti writes/makes).
All in all, if you don’t mind blood, guts, gore, and disgusting health stories, be sure to check these out. You will learn something, and it is just so interesting to see what kind of silly things the human body can get up to.
