Sadly, the best part of this book is its inspired title: Hand Drawn Jokes for Smart Attractive People. The rest is either clever, but not funny, or offensive depending on the page. It’s a shame really- the artwork itself is great and it’s clear that Diffee is a talented cartoonist. I just didn’t connect with much of the work.
Out of all of it, my favorite cartoon was on page 188- Moses: The Teen Years where a young adult version of Moses is depicted staring into a mirror, carefully parting his long hair with a comb. The worst was the entirety of Chapter Eight: For Smart Attractive Indians and Eskimos and really soured this whole book for me.
Thanks for reading!
