FUNGIRL is a hapless (hopeless) hot mess of a woman crashing through life, leaving chaos in her wake. Although her oblivious antics infuriate her roommate, terrify the teenage skaters she tries to impress, and threaten her every opportunity for employment, FUNGIRL remains charming, transgressive, and hilarious.
Pich’s cartoonish art is simple and quirky, with clean lines and bold colors. The art transforms potentially graphic scenes of sex and violence into adorably cute, almost sweet, vignettes. Pich renders FUNGIRL’s particular messiness deliciously palatable, like an inappropriate wedding cake.
Recommended for fans of Fleabag, Spaced, and BoJack Horseman.
