Be Everything at Once: Tales of a Cartoonist Lady Person

illus. by Dami Lee. 160p. Chronicle. Aug. 2018. pap. $14.95. ISBN 9781452167657.
Lee, who has lived in South Korea and the United States, discusses identity in this collection of entries pulled from her webcomic, As Per Usual. Her self-depreciating jokes and commentary on modern life, the Internet, and Korean and American cultures are funny, relatable, and clever. The four-panel cartoons are digitally created, and characters are portrayed with big, round eyes. Lee is drawn always wearing an appealing pink sweater with an egg on it. The author/illustrator was a Web Artist Fellow at BuzzFeed for a time, and this title will appeal to fans of the popular site.
VERDICT Recommended for most graphic novel collections.
