Comic Book Review: The Story of My Tits by Jennifer Hayden

  Dealing with breast cancer over 3 generations, Jennifer Hayden shares her life and the story of her tits.

Spoken from the POV of a breast cancer survivor, this story is touching and eye-opening in s culture in which breasts are oversexualized. 

Growing up: 

Big news: Margie got a bra…and I got braces. Yeah, THAT’S fair. 

Dealing with her mothers breast cancer and her parents failing marriage: 

You are leaving childhood. Entering crap city. 

Her mother-in-law’s lung cancer: 

All the life had been taken from the liveliest woman I had ever known.

Two kids later. 

Welcome to middle-age! Now would be an excellent time for you to stop being a chickenshit.

And finally her own cancer. 

(I don’t have a pithy quote for this one.) 

When she finally decides to tell her tale in the form of a graphic novel. 

Sometimes funny, and sometimes sad, this is recommended reading for anyone who is a survivor, or anyone who wants to spend a little time from the POV of someone who is. 

Thanks to NetGalley, Diamond Book Distributors, and Top Shelf for a copy in return for an honest review.
