Comics I Admire: “Awkward Shelby”

Yesterday (December 3rd), I decided to try messaging a fellow webcomic creator that I strongly admire: Shelby Lynn Criswell, writer and illustrator of Awkward Shelby.

And, boy, am I glad I did! She’s not only super talented, but also super sweet! She even checked out The Flea and is now a fan! So I wanted to do everything in my power to promote her comic and share her work with all of you. :)

Awkward Shelby is a series of autobiographical strips detailing the awkward moments of Shelby’s life. Shelby is a self-procliamed “androgynous weirdo,” but I think her awkwardness is very universal (or at least I personally relate to many of her plights). Her drawing style is very whimsical and full of movement and life.

Also, she’s working on a more serious graphic novel called This is Your Life, which looks very very very promising! :D

Below are a number of my favorite strips from Awkward Shelby.

The following images belong to Shelby Lynn Criswell.
