Review | I Left the House Today!

Hilarious and relatable comics about one young woman’s life, relationships, and day-to-day humorous musings on why it’s good to leave the house sometimes—and when it’s better to stay home.

Cassandra Calin’s ability to document the hilarity of relatable everyday events in a series of webcomics has generated a huge following on social media. This beautifully illustrated compendium of first-person comics about the trials of the single life, school, stress, junk food, shaving, and maintaining a healthy self-image. Cassandra Calin’s comics frequently highlight the humorous gap between expectations and reality, especially when it comes to appearance and how much she can accomplish in one day. This book is funny, lighthearted, introspective, and artistically stunning—the perfect gift for young women, recent graduates, and anyone who might need a little comedic incentive to leave the house today.

I’ve been really enjoying the comic collections of web comics that have been coming out as of late, so as soon as I saw this one I wanted to pick it up. There are so many of these comics that were relatable and real. It was so nice to see these comics which could take such awkward everyday moments and find humor in them. I also really liked Calin’s art style, it’s clear that she has a range when it comes to her art and utilizes in order to create her comics. All in all it was hilarious and so easy to connect to that I flew through it.

I Left the House Today comes out June 2nd, from Andrews McMeel Publishing. Be sure to pick up a copy if it sounds interesting to you.

Happy reading!
