I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.
You know how, since the dawn of humanity, great philosophers and poets have dedicated their entire lives to exploring concepts like love, life itself, logic, and sorrow? Well, those great philosophers and poets are dead now, so I win. — Shen

Emotions Explained With Buff Dudes is your fully illustrated guide to the hyper-conflicted, tragicomic feelings of our age. Featuring the resilient, shaggy-haired Shen, this debut collection of Owlturd Comix is a tale of triumph and survival — of getting your ass kicked by sleep deprivation and student loans, but never losing hope. Most of all, it’s an amusing, instructive journey through a vast array of emotions, including those best explained with dudes who are buff.
Emotions Explained With Buff Dudes is…exactly what it says it’s about. It’s a set of comics on life itself by Andrew Tsyaston, the person behind Owlturd Comix and Shen Comix. The main character in Tsyaston’s comics is Shen. I’ve been following Shen and his antics for a long time now. He’s the kind of fictional character you can’t help but relate to.
He stays up till the wee hours of dawn, has student loans, and a huge Netflix addiction. That’s like 75% of the human population right there. Every comic in this book is painfully relatable and has been beautifully created.
Read this book if you like graphic novels about day to day experiences. You can finish it in under 2 hours and snap out of any reading slump you may be in. This book will make you snort with laughter and relate to every single comic in it.
