Synopses & Reviews
Gina Wynbrandt's debut graphic novel is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration, shot through with American pop-culture erudition.
Someone Please Have Sex With Me is a refreshing and wry look at sexual frustration from our young heroine and author. From failed erotic photoshoots and late-onset teen popstar obsessions to fairy Kardashians and Pokaemon-inspired future-sex, Wynbrandt isn't one to hold back. SPHSWM finds its footing at the surreal and hilarious juncture between autobiography and fantasy.

"Smart, wickedly funny, and transgressive. More comics like this, please!" John Porcellino
"It’s impossible not to fall in love with this hilarious minx as she lunges across the page, nostrils flared, hurling herself into increasingly ridiculous romantic misadventures. Bow down to Gina as she explores what it means to be horny as hell!" Lisa Hanawalt
