    Super divertido 😊. Un libro muy cuco que te hace sacar más de una sonrisa. Y donde también podemos conocer un poquito más a la autora, con unas ilustraciones muy chulas.

    Haha, this was just as amazing as I had hoped. So happy she finally has a book filled with her work, I always love reading them on Tapastic. Thank you to my fiance for giving me this one as a present for my birthday. This one contains tons of comics by Cassandra Calin, but also sketches, drawings, art (she can draw really amazing things). She also tells about her life, how she started drawing, showing us some really old comics she drew when she was a teen.

I really had tons of fun reading this one, and laughed my butt off reading the comics (even if I already knew most of them, I still found them hilarious), I loved that they were separated in chapters and that each chapter had an appropriate (and hilarious) illustration. Highly recommended.

    I am not a social media fan so haven't come across Cassandra's comics before. I backed the book out of a whim on Kickstarter and let me tell you - no regrets! The comics are very relatable and in many of them I see myself. And don't worry Cassandra - you are not the only woman with phone phobia or big toe hair :'D I am not a social media fan so haven't come across Cassandra's comics before.

    I love the attention to detail in Calin's comics - it's not often that short web comics are this beautifully done! The comics were funny and extremely relatable.

    I received this book via Kickstarter and I was super excited! Her drawings are really beautiful and spot-on at times, so the reading experience was pleasant as well. I didn't expect as much context and explanation of her live in this book, but it was a lovely surprise. That being, I hoped for more newer comics. Most of them I had already seen on her facebook/instagram page. Which isn't a bad thing necessarily! Because they are great, but it would have been nice to have more original content incl I received this book via Kickstarter and I was super excited!

    The expert design of this book alone would make it a great addition to any graphic designer's or web-comics fan's collection, but the art & humor will entice many more people into becoming fans as well. Her work's greatest strength, beyond fantastic design skills, is her ability to create hilarious, exaggerated expressions as results of very relatable situations - all in a charming art-style. I would love to see her work collected in more volumes like this.

    Ugh. I love Calin’s comics. Her drawings are fantastic, her humor is spot on, what’s there not to like? I found her on tumblr after having seen some of her comics randomly all over the place. When she did the Kickstarter for her book I just had to buy into it. And it was well-worth it. If you’re real human being, especially a real woman, just trying to exist in this world that wants everything from us and you feel like you fall short, try to get your hands on STILL JUST KIDDING.

    Easy to read (you can read it in one day), very funny in an intelligent and perceptive way. I could relate to so many situations. If you are following Cassandra on social media, then you’ve probably already read most of the comics in this book. Nevertheless, I wanted to have them in paper and I don’t regret buying the book and supporting Cassandra’s work.

    Cet album qui regroupe les dessins et la vie de Cassandra Calin est une pure merveille. Les dessins sont magnifiques, nous en apprenons plus sur sa vie, ses motivations et sa passion pour le dessin. J'ai été touché et j'ai rigolé, mais surtout j'ai passé un moment fantastique en parcourant chaque page de cet album. Un bonheur !

    Tiene viñetas súper divertidas. Me encantan las de 《expectativas vs realidad》. Creo que si te gusta dibujar te encantará este libro y todo lo que cuenta la autora sobre su proceso creativo y su carrera.

    I’ve always loved Cassandra drawings and humour. I loved it although I thought there was new material but nevertheless it is still good and hilarious.

    ⭐4.50 Un primo volume molto introduttivo per Cassandra Calin, che si presenta al pubblico con una spolverata di sé. Credo che sia un racconto molto carino, e certamente non toglie assolutamente nulla alle vignette che vengono successivamente. Mi ha fatto davvero un sacco ridere e non vedo assolutamente l'ora che ne arrivi un terzo! Carino, fresco e con anche qualche piccolo tips di disegno, davvero consigliato! ⭐4.50 Un primo volume molto introduttivo per Cassandra Calin, che si presenta al pubblico con una spolverata di sé.

    Me gusta mucho el estilo de ilustración de esta autora. En el libro no sólo se recoge una recopilación de sus viñetas más famosas publicadas en redes, sino que la autora describe su evolución como artista, sus fuentes de inspiración e incluso los materiales que utiliza para sus ilustraciones. El cómic es con tintes autobiográficos y es fácil verse reflejada en muchas situaciones cotidianas que parodia. Son especialmente divertidas las viñetas expectativas vs realidad.

    Not what I was expecting: this was more of a how-to guide for her style of comics and how the author writes and draws, with some of her comics in at the end as examples. That being said, it was very interesting. The artwork was beautiful, it’s funny and well written. It was a brief and interesting insight into the art of Cassandra Calin, and how to create original comics.

    It was okay. I still love Cassandra, but I was expecting more new content. The majority of the comics (I think all but two?) I recognized from her social media. That was a let down. But, it’ll be nice to share the book with other who maybe haven’t seen her stuff before.

    Las viñetas son todas buenísimas, me siento identificada todo el rato y me he reído con ganas. Pero he echado en falta más contenido. La presentación se hace un poco larga, aunque nos permite conocer más a la autora y el proceso creativo siempre es interesante.
