Drawn & Quarterly, Drawn and Quarterly
A hilarious slice of twentysomething life in the twenty-first century
Welcome to the Girl Juice House, home of only the hottest gang in town. Benji Nate’s stylish and rambunctious sense of humor lovingly takes digs at the young and tragically hip–reserved and introspective Nana, comically hypersexual Bunny, fledgling U-tuber Tula, and Designated Mom™ Sadie–as they navigate life, love, and the pursuit of a good time.
Girl Juice flaunts the gloriously messy and hilariously self-indulgent day-to-day hijinks of four young women doing the most. Watch them bicker over making rent and come up with creative solutions for getting there! Cringe as they attend an adult prom! Split your sides as they try their hand at camping! Cower as they confront their mommy issues, and cheer as they battle inner demons that feed off attention-seeking behavior!
Nate’s colorful attention to detail and gift balancing for graphic hyperbole with subtle comedy are a deep, much-needed breath of fresh air. With front-facing cameras ever at the ready, Girl Juice is a snappy reminder that the time of your life is always just a text away.
“Not just, ‘hot and simple’, Girl Juice tells the story of being young, disillusioned, and horny. A fun read especially if you’re in the mood to ‘feel alive and cry a lil’. Also, a heartfelt thank you to Benji Nate for introducing the acronym DMILF to my vocabulary.” —Aminder Dhaliwal, author of Woman World and Cyclopedia Exotica
“Benji Nate’s slice-of-life-but-funnier-and-grosser-than-usual Girl Juice illustrates the beautiful camaraderie that can only be built by being in close proximity, annoying, and horny to one another on a long-term basis. Frankly, I’d be scared to encounter any of these characters at a party, knowing what I now know about their sexual secrets.” —Rebecca Kirby, creator of BEEEEFF!! and BIG MILK
“Girl Juice is the funniest comic I’ve read in ages. It takes me back to being 20, surrounded by roommates whose dildos are in the kitchen sink and whose dogs are the ones paying their rent. You can tell that this book is not only about girls, but is written for them. I wish more comics were like it.” —Caroline Cash, cartoonist of PeePeePooPoo

Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC! (character spoilers below)
I loved this!! The art style is SO cute and fun and the colors are fantastic. Each of the four girls has a distinct personality and unique relationships with each other. Bunny a self absorbed slut from a religious background who is also still religious but living her best life. I love her and relate to her. Nana is an artist who is obsessed with the clown aesthetic. A little less relatable for me, but I still love her. Tula is a queer youtuber and I love her and that's relatable. Sadie is a queer punk with minor mom vibes and pink hair--relatable and I love her. Britney is a dog. Not super relatable but I love her.
Not only was the art wonderful, it was very funny and relatable. I want to buy a copy for my old roommate because, even though we weren't as cool as the girl juice gals, it's still a good vibe. I wish my life was more like girl juice.
Halfway through reading this I followed the author on instagram because obviously I want to see more stuff from her and tell my friends all about it so this is 100% 5 stars from me!
