Gina Wynbrandt's debut graphic novel is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration, shot through with American pop-culture erudition.

"It's impossible not to fall in love with this hilarious minx as she lunges across the page, nostrils flared, hurling herself into increasingly ridiculous romantic misadventures. Bow down to Gina as she explores what it means to be horny as hell!" -- Lisa Hanawalt , production designer/producer of BoJack Horseman, author of My Dirty Dumb Eyes

" Someone Please Have Sex With Me plays with conventions of style and color, featuring pleasingly feminine sherbet-y tones juxtaposed against a storyline about a woman looking for love in all the wrong places--in all the wrong ways." -- The LA Times

"Smart, wickedly funny, and transgressive. More comics like this, please!" -- John Porcellino , author of The Hospital Suite

Someone Please Have Sex With Me is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration from our young heroine and author. From failed erotic photoshoots and late-onset teen popstar obsessions to fairy Kardashians and Pokémon-inspired future-sex, Wynbrandt isn't one to hold back. SPHSWM finds its footing at the surreal and hilarious juncture between autobiography and fantasy.

Gina Wynbrandt (b. 1990) writes comics about personal humiliations and insecurities, as well as topics like fashion, pop culture, and celebrities. A portion of Gina's work will also appear in Best American Comics 2015 .

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Wynbrandt's debut graphic novel intimately portrays the bizarre daydreams that arise from being adolescent, horny, single, and obsessed with a celebrity heartthrob. The first story opens with an apathetic young adult, Gina, living somewhere in the U.S., being shown a Justin Bieber video by her younger sister. The exquisite next page reveals Gina's instant obsession: Bieber posters, rug, scrapbooks, hairbrush, etc. Bieber's affirming lyrics underscore the stark contrast between fantasy teen boyfriend and constant real-life rejection. Colored digitally in a limited range of pastels, Wynbrandt's panels alternate between flattering their subjects and making them repulsive, displaying an awkward realism that brings the story to life. Breezy references to One Direction, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Sailor Moon, and various memes root this book in early 21st-century Internet pop culture. Unflinchingly personal and deeply self-aware, this book peeks at the beautiful, painful, whimsical inner life of the author, including the discovery of erotic AOL chat rooms and the use of video games and porn to escape the stress of college loans.
