Free download Super Late Bloomer

A highly personal collection documenting the early months of artist Julia Kaye’s gender transitionInstead of a traditional written diary Julia Kaye has always turned to art as a means of self reflection So when she began her gender transition in 2016 she decided to. This is a collection of comics about Julia Kaye being transgender and transitioning It s fine Most of the comics are simple three panel layouts They are too short to get into anything in much detail Most revolve around Kaye s gender dysphoria Being misgendered by both friends and strangers Having high levels of anxiety about being misgendered Feeling like everyone is staring at her and judging her all that time Hating herself on some level constantlyI can t say this is the best book about being transgender I think the three panel comic style is too shallow It doesn t give Kaye enough room to explore and analyze I understand these were personal comics she wrote during her transition in order to better deal with life and her feelings but as something to be consumed by the public I found it unsatisfying Then again I m not transgender so take this with a grain of saltThere s also this idea not only in this book but in responses to Kaye s art I ve seen on the Internet that being a woman or being female means living in this constant state of anxiety worry self hatred feeling unpretty and dealing with hating yourself and your body I m not sure I really am comfortable with this kind of thinking Is it true Untrue Everyone has their own experiences The patriarchy exists But it s not exactly uplifting Saying Life as a woman is a life in misery is one way to view things I m not sure it s particularly helpful or what women should be bonding over but I could be wrong DepressingTL DR This isn t the a book I d recommend wholeheartedly Then again I m not a transgendered person so perhaps transgendered readers of this book get out of it than I do I understand Kaye wrote this for herself as a form of therapy while transitioning I m only writing this review as a book that s meant for public consumption I don t think the three panel comic format allows room enough for exploration and analysis of the transgender experience

Ng from struggling with self acceptance and challenging societal expectations to moments of self love and joy Super Late Bloomer both educates and inspires as Julia faces her difficulties head on and commits to being wholly authentically who she was always meant to be. As the cover promises this is a diary in comics form about Julia s transition from male to female She did one cartoon per day The book is really about the mental transition than the physical Despite the physical changes looking in the mirror and seeing a woman isn t as easy as it sounds There s a lifetime of conditioning to undoAlthough there is some humor in this book it s not constant gag a day material It s about introducing you to Julia and her life and building moments of shared humanity and detail until you see yourself reflected in the book Or at least that was my experience I m not female or trans but last I checked I am a human being I may not have had Julia s exact experiences but I ve had enough similar ones to feel a certain level of kinship Thanks for sharing this bit of your life Julia You are an amazing personOn the downside the book is short I was sorry to see it end With only one strip per page it looks deceptively thick Honestly though that s the worst I can say about itSo really short but really good Recommended
