Leah Hayes, former Illustration student and faculty member, published Not Funny Ha-Ha, a bold and slightly wry graphic novel about two young women going through abortions. It’s a little bit technical, a little bit moving, and often funny, in a format uniquely suited to communicate.
The book is available for pre-order here.
Early press for Not Funny Ha-Ha:
“A woman’s written a comic book about abortion and everyone should read it”- Metro UK
“Hayes’ illustrations are straightforward and witty. She defines technical terms and medical processes while still managing to capture the deeply personal, human side of the reproductive decisions a woman makes.” – Huffington Post
“Conveys a feeling of comfort and openness, while also conveying the weight of the topic.” – Buzzfeed
“A serious work that aims to ease anxiety and bring clarity.” – Bitch Media
” Judgement-free, but still witty and brutally honest enough to demystify the topic.” – Ravishly
“An amazingly thoughtful, empathetic guide to abortion.”- Listen to the Publisher’s Weekly More to Come podcast interview with Leah
