Thirsty Mermaids
Thirsty Mermaids | Kat Leyh
16 posts | 10 read | 17 to read
The raucous and literal fishes-out-of-water graphic novel from prolific comic artist and writer Kat Leyh, creator of the acclaimed Snapdragon and coauthor of the Eisner and GLAAD Awardwinning series Lumberjanes. Fresh out of shipwreck wine, three tipsy mermaids decide to magically masquerade as humans and sneak onto land to indulge in much more drinking and a whole lot of fun in the heart of a local seaside tourist trap. But the good times abruptly end the next morning as, through the haze of killer hangovers, the trio realizes they never actually learned how to break the spell, and are now stuck on land for the foreseeable future. Which means everything from: enlisting the aid of their I-know-we-just-met-can-we-crash-with-you bartender friend, struggling to make sense of the world around them, and even trying to get a job with no skill setall while attempting to somehow return to the sea and making the most of their current situation with tenacity and camaraderie (especially if someone else is buying).

More catch up! You can tell that this is from one if the creators of Lumberjanes. There's sass and heart and adventure, while being slightly more inappropriate. I was surprisingly pleased by this graphic novel!

Do not mistakenly think this is a middle grade book like the author's last book. It is not. The mermaids are thirsty because they want to get drunk. These are party mermaids looking to have fun. One of the group says, hey I can give us legs and we can walk on land to find more bubbly drink. And she does exactly that. But she forgets to tell them she doesn‘t know the counter spell.

I adore this charming & very queer graphic novel! No sex: it‘s friendship to the max, reminding me of the Lumberjanes series which is coauthored by Kat Leyh, although this standalone is definitely for age 18 & up. That‘s because of the alcohol consumption, which is the reason a couple of merfolk & a sea witch have ventured onto dry land. Poor decision-making while inebriated & the hangover price do counteract the alcohol message. #LGBTQ

I giggled often while reading this graphic novel. The humour is never mean, which I appreciate. With characters who are naive sea folk pretending to be humans, creator Kat Leyh has plenty of opportunities to work the “fish out of water” angle.

This was so much fun! I didn‘t know anything about this going on other than Mermaids! so I didn‘t have any expectations. These wacky fun loving merfolk get stuck as humans and have to navigate the weirdness that is humanity while trying to figure out how to get back to themselves. Lots of great messages about friendship and found family here and representation as well. Loved this one. 🧜‍♀️ 💜

Took me a few pages to get into this but once I did boy oh boy did I fall in love with these rowdy mermaids. Three mermaids transform into humans to get booze but then realize they can't turn back. Good thing their new bartender friend is there to help. Loved everything about this from the ride or die friendship of the mermaids to the lowkey queerness. Also Tooth. God bless sectet-softie shark fighting Tooth.
