Save Me! (From Myself): Crushes, Cats, and Existential Crises (Hardcover)
WARNING: This book contains so many feelings!
This colorful collection of comics will take you on an expertly guided emotional journey, from impostor syndrome to unrequited love, with stops along the way for excitement, joy, vulnerability, and existential dread. Illustrator and self-proclaimed crybaby So Lazo renders each experience with honesty and heart, navigating the obstacle course of early adulthood with their distinctive style and self-deprecating humor. Heartbreakingly earnest and effortlessly queer, this little book captures the trials and tribulations of the creative introvert in vivid detail.
DISTINCTIVE VOICE: Lazo's work is earnest without being sappy or preachy and vulnerable without taking itself too seriously. It manages to be beautiful and messy, funny and wistful, inviting you into Lazo's colorful, creative, anxious, determined, introverted world.
RELATABLE CONTENT: If you've ever lost your nerve upon running into your crush at a party, juggled your love-hate relationship with working from home, or wished that aliens would rescue you from the Dumpster fire that is human existence—this book is for you!
