Review


"The humor is more playful than biting, but even the slightest ideas are made enjoyable by the artist’s outstanding pen-and-ink linework. —
Publishers Weekly

"It's a hilarious collection of comics that will take your imagination to quirky new places." —
People I Think Are Cool

“Let me warn you in advance that if you are going to read Tsurumi’s books, your dream-life will probably never be quite the same again."—Hannah Means-Shannon,
Bleeding Cool

"Delightfully bizarre and fiendishly imaginative" —Andy Oliver,
Broken Frontier

"Her sensibility, delighting in what might seem mundane, can resonate with people of all ages. It’s almost as if Tsurumi is sharing secrets of the world’s possibilities, and it’s exciting to behold" —Samantha Maldonado,
Harvard Magazine

"The shorts and one-pagers in WWYDT range from sight gags, to acid trip-level weirdness, to memoir-esque reflection on self and place. Tsurumi’s work is layered, and what is especially striking is her ability anchor images of larger-than-life women in swimming pools, or poodles full of people, in human emotion and real life situations." —Mel B,
Mel Reads Comics

"It’s an absolutely beautiful and haunting work, and yet its contrasting tone to the rest of the book manages not to stand separate, but rather brings everything together." —John Seven,
The Comics Beat

"Her work is immersive in the best sense of the word as you get lost in it as you would a compelling piece of performance art." —Henry Chamberlin,
Comicsgrinder

"It's a hilarious and bizarre satire . . ." — Rob Clough,
High-Low

Andrea Tsurumi (they/them) is an author, illustrator and cartoonist originally from New York who now lives with their spouse and dog in Philadelphia. A gigantic text + image nerd, they studied sequential storytelling for an English BA at Harvard and an illustration MFA at the School of Visual Arts. While working in publishing for a several years, they threw themself into their two loves: indie comics and children’s books. Their first book, ACCIDENT! was an NPR Great Read and their second book, CRAB CAKE, won the Vermont Red Clover Book Award. Their book in the Elephant & Piggie Love Reading Series, I'M ON IT!, was a Kirkus Best of the Year 2021. Children's books they've illustrated include the KONDO & KEZUMI series, SHARKO & HIPPO, NOT YOUR NEST, and MR. WATSON'S CHICKENS. When they're not inventing croissant-based animals, they like reading about ordinary and ridiculous history.
