Goblin Girl
Goblin Girl | Moa Romanova
4 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
A dating site match goes really wrong in this troubling, funny graphic memoir. Things seem to be looking up when Moa Romanova ? broke, depressed, and living in a squat above an old store ? matches with a very famous celebrity on a popular hook-up site. Not only does the 53-year-old man like Moa ? he also immediately validates and motivates her in a way that not even her therapist does, even offering to help financially support her artistic ambitions. However, Moa soon discovers that there are strings attached. Drawn in a style that's de Chirico by way of the '80s, Romanova's relatable graphic memoir is a thought-provoking debut.

Moa Romanova‘s graphic memoir about living with depression and an anxiety disorder is moving and even funny. She‘s young and lives in a rundown apartment in Gothenberg, Sweden, with unreliable water. The clutter & garbage pictured everywhere seem to reflect her mental struggle. But she finds hope & help from unlikely quarters. The art is unusual and striking; with minimal text. #Translation by Melissa Bowers. #WIT #comics

No words, but Romanova perfectly depicts the despair of yet another panic attack. 😞

I‘m not sure how to describe Moa Romanova‘s art in her graphic memoir, but I like it. Retro? What words would you use? It reminds me of Michael DeForge‘s work, except with much less colour.

Patchshank Makes me think of old Disney cartoons and yellow submarine. 7mo
Lindy @Patchshank Yep, I can see that too 😊 7mo

Graphic novel about panic attacks and how the author copes. I also loved the art style.
