Review: Lady Stuff by Loryn Brantz

I’ve had my eye on Loryn Brantz’s work before when Feminist Baby was released earlier this year, so I was ecstatic to give her new book a go. These brightly colored, adorable comics find the humor in the awkwardness of simply existing, separated into five different sections: grooming and habit maintenance, life ambitions, mating habits, self-care, and social conduct.

I was anticipating for Lady Stuff to be the perfect fun and quick thing to read in one sitting, but unfortunately nothing quite original was said in here. A lot of stuff has been written and done before, especially if you’re familiar with Sarah Andersen online, like the eyeliner bit where you touch upon one eye then the other until you end up looking like a panda, or the same thing but with shaping your eyebrows. There were less than a handful of standouts in here, which I found to be incredibly unfortunate.

Nevertheless, I would still like to highlight the comics that I enjoyed a bit more than others:

Lady Stuff 1 --bookspoils

 

Lady Stuff 2 --bookspoils

 

Lady Stuff 3 --bookspoils

 

Lady Stuff 4 --bookspoilsThe above was legit the only comic to make me laugh out loud.

Lady Stuff 5 --bookspoils

 

Lady Stuff 6 --bookspoils

 

Lady Stuff 7 --bookspoils


Though things didn’t really pan out the way I had planned or expected, I’m still grateful to have read this swift collection of comics.
