Reviews

“She talks about all sorts of aspects of her life. Some of them are directly related to her being a trans woman who only recently started transitioning, like her comics about breast growth or having a ‘manly’ sounding cough, but others are just about the minutiae of her daily life, like the comics about her idea of a hard-partying weekend, or the struggle of over-complicated tank top backs. Others could be related to her being trans, or they could just be other parts of her personality. I mean, who didn’t watch Orange is the New Black Season 2 and think the whole time that it absolutely needed more Laverne Cox? And all of the comics are equally cute.” (Source: Autostraddle)
