    My Thoughts As mentioned in previous reviews, it’s hard to scroll through a social media feed without having seen at least one of Sarah’s Scribbles reblogged at some point. If you’ve read my previous reviews of Adulthood is a Myth and Big Mushy Happy Lump then you already know that I’m a fan of this comic series.

    Adulthood Is a Myth

    Also in this series: Big Mushy Happy Lump, Herding Cats, Oddball Also by this author: Fangs My Thoughts I imagine a lot of people are at least vaguely familiar with Sarah’s Scribbles, a webcomic that originated on Tumblr but later spread to other social media platforms.
