Fans of Poorly Drawn Lines, Liz Climo, Randall Munroe, and The Oatmeal will love this riotous collection marking the return of optimistic Heart and analytical Brain with over 60 brand-new, never-before-seen comics.
Vigorously demanded and highly anticipated, Heart and Brain: Gut Instincts is the follow-up to the tremendously popular New York Times bestseller, Heart and Brain: An Awkward Yeti Collection.
Heart and Brain are back!
Though they never really left my mind. This duo is a perfect one. Not perfect in the sense that there isn’t a better duo than the two of them, but perfect in the sense that they are a fantastic match.
Heart is like a child, loving without questioning. Brain questions first and loves second. Every human being has a little bit of both in them. Sometimes we want to think with our hearts, and sometimes with our brains. There is a moment for each.
In this sequel are featured new characters that were not introduced in the first book: Eyes, Lungs, Teeth, Gut, Tongue, etc. Honestly, they just suddenly appeared, without having a formal introduction, as though they were always part of the story.
That’s okay, but it meant I wasn’t so familiar with them, even though we all have these organs in our bodies.
The reason why I can’t give this book five stars like I did to the first one is because there were certain scenes without Heart and Brain—and overall I felt like their presence decreased in importance.
But it’s still very, very enjoyable.
