Review: Gut Instincts
Are you familiar with The Awkward Yeti? It’s an online comic by Nick Seluk featuring a blue Yeti named Lars. Seluk has started a few spin-off comics, one of which is Heart and Brain, which follows the adventures of Lars’s internal organs with the heart and brain taking the lead. A collection of these comics has been published as THE AWKWARD YETI PRESENTS HEART AND BRAIN: GUT INSTINCTS.
I picked up GUT INSTINCTS thinking it was a kids’ book but it’s not. There’s nothing inappropriate in the comics, but the humor of the heart and brain fighting against each other is definitely geared towards adults. I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading this short book and laughed out loud fairly often as I read it. I shared a lot of the comics with Carl and we joked about several of them for days. In other words, I loved this book and now consider myself a big fan of the comic. I shared this panel with a lot of my friends:
I’ve picked this book up several times since I first read it. Everyone will find something they can relate to in GUT INSTINCTS so I think it would make a great gift. Grab this book when you need a laugh!
