I received a copy of Sorry I Ruined Your Childhood through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Sorry I Ruined Your Childhood is a collection of comic strips from the one and only Ben Zaehringer. His humor is slightly dark, but exceedingly witty and dry. And that is why I love his comics so much.

To be clear; this isn’t a comic collection full of bright and bubbly artwork and light-hearted jokes. Ben Zaehringer isn’t afraid to get dark – the title of this series should probably give that away. But for those that lean towards the cynical side, or who enjoy a dry sense of humor, this collection is perfect for you.

This collection was a chuckle-worthy read, through and through. Here so many elements from our childhoods have been pulled into comic format, and slightly altered. So as to ‘ruin our childhood.’ The humor is sometimes a little bit warped, but in the way, you might expect from this collection (again, look at the title!).

This was a fun and memorable read for me. And it was one I highly enjoyed. I’m going to have to remember to keep an eye out for more of Ben Zaehringer’s works, because he gets me.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any 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. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
