Waterstones Says

Created during the lockdown of 2020, Rachael Smith's brilliant graphic memoir presents a series of hilarious and sharply observed comics about life in quarantine and administers a potent dose of comic relief for isolation blues.

An award-winning graphic memoir of lockdown life, Quarantine Comix is a funny, tender, heartfelt and insightful look at isolation.

Written and drawn every day during the 2020 lockdown and shared online with #QuarantineComix, 2020 Comedy Women in Print-shortlisted Rachael Smith's delightful comics helped people who were isolated all over the world to feel connected.

At times laugh-out-loud funny, at others bitter-sweet, philosophical or downright silly, this collection of 200 drawings tells the story of one woman overcoming loneliness and self-doubt with exquisite, wry humour and raw honesty.

During a time when many feel anxious and apart from loved ones, Quarantine Comix offers relief in shared experiences.
