Review: Clumsy (The Girlfriend Trilogy #1)

User Review  - Anoop Menon - Goodreads

Even though, sex is primarily used as a filler in Clumsy; it portrays the subtleties of a long distance relationship. Brown has intentionally scribbled his way through the artwork to make this (autobiographical?) story, a deeply relatable one. Read full review

User Review  - Laura - Goodreads

It made me want to be dating someone and it also made me not want to date ever again. JB includes seemingly mundane moments that can only happen in a lovely comfortable-ness. I also related too much to the "crazy" ex-girlfriend. So there's that. Awesome. Read full review

User Review  - G Howard - Goodreads

Brown's first major work. Raw, full of a lot of heartache, but also a lot of fond memories of loving someone very deeply and then losing them. If you've ever loved and lost, I think you will probably ... Read full review

User Review  - Jay O'Connell - Goodreads

The drawing style here echoes and reinforces the content, awkwardly expressive and beautiful and odd.

Review: Clumsy (The Girlfriend Trilogy #1)

User Review  - Jessica Kluthe - Goodreads

This graphic novel manages to give the impression of a full relationship through highlighting little moments and experiences and intentionally withholding any commentary/exposition on the events. They stand alone, which is the strength of this book. It is absolutely heart-breaking, and so, so real. Read full review

It was good. However, I liked Unlikely better. Read full review

Review: Clumsy (The Girlfriend Trilogy #1)

User Review  - Allegra - Goodreads

Is it reductive to say that this would make a "really good movie"? I say this as a genuine lover of the cinema. Depressing "slice-of-life" (oof, that one's definitely reductive) moments of a relationship that we're all going to have some day. Read full review
