Get a First Look at Girlsplaining: A (Sorta) Memoir, Out March 2021

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at the original graphic novel Girlspaining: A (Sorta) Memoir, by cartoonist Katja Klengel, tackling the subjects that have shaped her life: from body shaming to the exploration of her sexuality, and from the representation of women in the media to the social pressure on women who don’t have children, available on March 3, 2021 in comic shops and on March 9, 2021 in bookstores..

Why do we fear the word “vulva” so much? Do we really have to be ashamed of our body hair? Why do gender roles in children’s toys seem to be stuck in the ‘50s? With a healthy sense of humor, an open heart, and unsparing candor, Klengel looks back on her childhood through the lens of the popular culture that shaped her identity and examines what being a woman today means to her (and really, a whole lot of us!).
