These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all.

Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.

smart and funny

I wish I had Adulthood Is a Myth in my teen years. But the fact that I’m reading this now and can still totally relate says a lot. Sarah Andersen is a talented artist that creates cute characters with funny facial expressions and hilarious scenarios.


It not only appeals to women but even my husband is loving this comic. He totally gets it. Partly because I complain about the same things that are topics in the comic. It’s a funny take on human nature: Our hopes, dreams, insecurities, and dilemmas are brought to the surface and the way it’s executed makes this a fun read.


Adulthood Is a Myth

I’m going through this right now.

Adulthood Is a Myth

I had this book on my wish list on Amazon for my birthday and I’m so happy that I got it. It’s a keeper. I wasn’t planning on reading it all in one sitting, but it just happened. It’s a very quick read, but it definitely has an honorary spot on my keeper shelf.

I just love Sarah’s Scribbles. I think what’s makes them so funny is that they’re always so true! It’s fun to be able to relate while getting a good laugh. πŸ™‚

The long long hair panels are spot on for me.

Those cartoons are cute. I can relate to the long hair one since my hair is long enough for me to sit on. lol

Angie @ Ba_BAMB

Oh my word. Those were some cute illustrations you haired! I got the haircut from Hades once, and it looked a lot like that! LOL

Thanks for sharing!
