heart and brain: body language

Heart and Brain: Body Language by Awkward Yeti (Nick Seluk)

I wonder whether other publishing houses are jealous that Andrews McMeel has cornered on this market on fantastic comics like this one? I read Lady Stuff from them a couple weeks ago, and this weekend I read Heart and Brain and (one of!) The Oatmeal's new books. I am fortunate in that they often allow me advanced copies, which was the case here. I suppose if other houses have book envy right now, it's likely over Rupi Kaur

I haven't had the pleasure of knowing Heart and Brain since the very beginning but once I discovered this comic that manages to be both lighthearted and slice rather deeply, I've latched on the same way I do to my morning coffee. Heart and Brain, along with a steadily increasing cast of other organs, discuss their daily travails and insights, always from their own perspectives. 


Although I've always love both Heart and Brain, I think my newest favourite is Guts. That last comic above is one I should have as a print on my wall. If you've encountered this gang before, you may have previously seen some of the content before; if you haven't enjoyed these adventures, this is an excellent place to start. There were (less than a handful) of comics that I didn't really understand but who knows - could've been my Brain at the time.
