“In Our Expanding Universe, Robinson considers the big choice — to have kids or not… It’s a delight to watch him pile speech bubbles atop each other, assemble mundane elements into complicated full-page tableaux and mix realism with fantasy.” NPR

“Robinson is a genius at characterization, and masterly in weaving the friendships and relationships together; the players are so believable and real that readers will continue thinking about them long after the story concludes.” Publishers Weekly

“Robinson’s ability to examine the awkward, to comment on societal trends, and to grab you by the heart and pull wet stuff from your tear ducts are all fully on display here… Top notch.”Under the Radar

“An improbably well-balanced examination of friendship and parenthood.”Page 45

story_of_my_tits_cover_sm_lgTHE STORY OF MY TITS is one of the year’s best graphic novels!

Congratulations to Jennifer Hayden — her ambitious, hilarious, heartbreaking graphic memoir  The Story of My Tits continues to earn rave reviews, called one of the Best Books of 2015 by Amazon.com, Library Journal, and the New York Times!

“I wanted something that would take my voice and transmit it to the reader as easily as if I was having a beer with them at the kitchen table,” explains Hayden in a recent  interview with Publishers Weekly [http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/comics/article/68648-jennifer-hayden-tells-the-story-of-my-tits.html]. “I wanted that informality and immediacy.” Readers have embraced the result, which goes far beyond a breast-cancer narrative to a page-turning exploration of adolescence, adulthood, family, love, and grief. “I set out to tell a survivor’s story that would be the story of a woman, and the last chapter is cancer — not a cancer story per se.”  The New York Times agrees [http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/multimedia/2015-holiday-gift-guide-books.html#the-story-of-my-tits], comparing it to Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home and calling it “the perfect gateway graphic novel” for friends and family.

Read a  12-page sample [http://www.topshelfcomix.com/catalog/the-story-of-my-tits/655] of this landmark book and see why critics call it “everything a graphic memoir can and should be”!
