GoodReads Summary:

Life is weird. Embrace it.

A bear flies through space. A hamster suffers a breakdown. Elsewhere, a garden snake is arrested by animal control and jailed for home invasion, while a child marvels at the wonder of nature as worms emerge from the ground and begin looking for vodka (as they always have). These are common occurrences in the world of Reza Farazmand’s wildly popular webcomic, Poorly Drawn Lines. […] This eponymous collection brings together fan favorites with new comics and original essays to share Farazmand’s inimitable take on love, nature, social acceptance, and robots.

My Review:

Rating: ★★★☆☆

~ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review~

If you’ve been on the Internet for any length of time, you’ve probably seen a Poorly Drawn Lines comic and didn’t even know what it was. Poorly Drawn Lines is definitely weird.

It’s a very short, and a moderately funny read. I really liked the art style, but some of the jokes felt repetitive. It was funny the first few times but then got stale real quick. There’s not really a plot to summarize. It’s a collection of comics, some already available online, some for the book alone, as well as strange short stories from unnamed narrators that often veer off into a strange direction.

Poorly Drawn Lines is not all laugh-out-loud funny. Some of the comics aren’t funny at all, some are very confusing. Overall, I still enjoyed a few of the comics. Here are some of my favourites:
