The Awkward Yeti Presents: Heart and Brain: Onward to Good Things!: A Heart and Brain Collection by Nick Seluk


ONWARD TO GOOD THINGS is a collection of Heart and Brain comics, which I would say are kind of in the vein of Sarah Scribbles and The Oatmeal: they're a childlike representation of the things that adults feel, done in a way that is relatable, amusing, and larger-than-life, all at once. The two main characters in this book are brain, the logical but anxious one, who is often held hostage by his addiction to caffeine and dopamine, and heart, the playful but irrational and chaotic entity who just wants to be happy... sometimes at terrible cost.

I thought these comics were cute. I remember getting a virtual ARC of one of Awkward Yeti's earlier collections a long time ago so it was fun to get a physical copy this time. As someone who does have anxiety and often feels torn between the desire to be happy and the desire to, you know, get lost in my own head, this was very relatable. I think this would be a fun read for a lot of anxious introverts, though I think I'd be careful giving this one as a gift.

P.S. Tongue and Colon cracked me up. God they're terrifying.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

4 to 4.5 out of 5 stars
