Comic Book Review: Heart and Brain by Nick Seluk

  3/5 stars

A huge collection of Heart and Brain web comics by Nick Seluk. 

Some of them are just spot on and hilarious, and make you want to yell, “True!” (Like when Brain says to Yeti in the night while Yeti is trying to sleep, “Hey, we forgot to do all those things today and everyone is going to be upset.”) 

Some of them are poignant and meaningful. (Like when Brain says to Heart, “Why do I keep following you?”) 

Some of them just aren’t that funny. 

But all of them get to the heart (ha!) of what it’s like when you’re emotions and intellect aren’t on the same page. Which they rarely are. 

And page 86 gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “They’re just jealous.” 

And, of course, there’s Batman. 

Whether it’s choosing between what you want to do and what you know you need to do, or just determining the best way to spend money, it is funny to see this tug of war play out a little more literally than usual. 

Thanks to Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for a copy in return for an honest review.
