Join Dennis, Johnny, and our guest host Veronica Lara as they take a look at Snotgirl, Vol. 1, by writer Bryan Lee O’Malley and artist Leslie Hung. Snotgirl, Vol. 1 is published by Image Comics. Snotgirl is the story of Lottie Person, a social media star, who leads her fans to believe she has it all, but in real life is vain and insecure.
In this episode the gang discusses if this book is meant to be read by generations other than Millenials; why Lottie only sees the few friends she has as competition; if “Coolgirl: and Charlene exist in the reality of this comic book; why the fashionistas in this book have their own version of going incognito; how Snotgirl only sees flaws in the people around her, even if they might be a decent person; if Snotgirl’s hair color is green because of her constant envy; and last but not least, the storytelling and art of Snotgirl, Vol. 1.
