"Fungirl" by Elizabeth Pich
Fungirl is a hapless (hopeless) hot mess of a woman crashing through life, leaving chaos in her wake. Although her oblivious antics infuriate her roommate-slash-ex-girlfriend, terrify the teenage skaters she tries to impress, and threaten her every opportunity for employment, Fungirl remains charming, transgressive, and hilarious.
Pich’s cartoonish art is simple and quirky, with clean lines and bold colors. The art transforms potentially graphic scenes of sex and violence into adorably cute, almost sweet, vignettes. Pich renders Fungirl’s particular messiness deliciously palatable, like an inappropriate wedding cake.
“Fungirl is a wacky trip through one impulsive act after another resulting in a cartoony, twisted world that I couldn't get enough of.” —Archie Bongiovanni (Grease Bats)
“No matter what wacky, exaggerated situation Fungirl finds herself in, it somehow still makes you say ‘I've been there, sister,’ though you'd deny it in polite company. She's everyone's most regrettable ex, but the one you got the best stories out of.” —Kelsey Wroten (Cannonball, The Ex-Girlfriend of My Ex-Girlfriend is my Girlfriend)
