Lady Stuff: Secrets to Being a Woman by Loryn Brantz

Lady Stuff


Publisher: Andrew McMeel Publishing
Release: September 26th 2017
Received: Net Galley
Rating: 3.5


I received a copy of Lady Stuff: Secrets for Being a Woman from Net Galley in exchange for a fair and honest review.


Odds are you’ve probably seen work by Loryn Brantz floating around the internet before – her artwork, while simple, is very iconic and easy to recognize. It’s also pretty popular on facebook (at least in my circle of friends and groups).

Lady Stuff compiles a decent chunk of her work in one easy to find place. Some of the comics have already gone viral online, so if you’re looking for 100% new content, this isn’t it. Unsurprisingly the focus of this collection of works can be identified by the title: lady stuff. Most of the comics revolve around dating, make up, or otherwise “woman focused” jokes. Pretty much all of the comics have a healthy dose of irony or satire (depending on what is called for at the moment) and the title shouldn’t be taken seriously (as in, these secrets aren’t really secrets, or guaranteed to be accurate facts in any way, shape, or form).

Lady Stuff was pretty funny and enjoyable, but I also don’t think it’s a book I would have pre-ordered or rushed out to buy on release day. It’d make a perfect gift for somebody though, so keep that in mind come holiday/birthday shopping time!



About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
