My Thoughts

How I Broke Up With My Colon is different take on the short story/biographies format. Inside the graphic novel you will find funny medical stories illustrated by Nick Seluk who is better known as The Awkward Yeti.

The graphic novel is both funny and horrifying. I say horrifying, if only because some of the medical stories are ones that could happen to anyone 😱 Having said that though, a lot are very rare or ones that people have been dealing with since childhood.

I found How I Broke Up With My Colon to be quite entertaining! The book was one that I was able to quickly read as it had not only engaging content but as each story unfolded I found myself having to know more about these poor people.

If you’re a fan of The Awkward Yeti then I would definitely recommend you pick up a copy of this book. If not and you’re just looking at it thinking it looks like an interested read – it is and you should give How I Broke Up With My Colon a read!
