Gudetama: Mindfulness for the Lazy


Mindfulness for the Lazy is a sweetly silly and surprisingly spot-on look at mindfulness and the meaning of life from an anthropomorphic lazy egg-yolk named Gudetama.  Due out 6th April 2021 from Oni Press, it's 48 full color pages and will be available in hardcover format (unclear from publisher's media info, but the other books in the series are also available in ComiXology and ebook formats).

I love upbeat positive silly situational comics. These are very short 1-3 page vignette stories full of life  advice with Gudetama and his buddy/helper/narrator Nisetama. The artist writer, Wook Jin Clark's work is frenetic and colorful in a good way. There were several of the stories which elicited a smile from me and at least one surprised chuckle.

Definitely a good choice for manga lovers, fans of comics, Sanrio fans, and 'just because'. I really loved the art and the cute (very silly) stories.

Three and a half stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
