    i wanted this book, so i ordered a copy into the store where i’ve been working. when it came in, i said “YAY!” and brought it over to the register-area to show chloë. we had barely gotten to giggle over ANY of it before a customer glided over and while i was ringing her up, she reached for the book, flipped through it, and added it to her haul.

    chloë drawed this to stop my weeping.

    i have read it now, but no time to review it yet - OH NO!

    AND NOW REVIEW

    ***************************

    i love this book. i really love this book.

    you would THINK that a three-panel strip using the same punch line every time would get old after a while. and many DID think it - critics of this book are all I AM DISAPPOINT! IS SAME JOKE FOREVER! the author of this book anticipated their displeasure:

    and yet, if comedy has taught us anything, it’s that tenacity is rewarded and the more times you do something, the funnier it is.

    and this book is funny. i’m sorry, but it just IS. and it is so many different kinds of funny

    it is ‘oh no, that is absurd’ funny

    the rueful laughter of ‘oh no, i have ruined my own life’ in sizes small

    and medium

    and large

    with a side order of ‘oh no, i must laff thru my tears’

    and some very relatable content regarding the oh noes of productivity fails, whether they are circumstantial and blameless:

    or… otherwise:

    this book also covers the oh noes of all relationships - friends:

    family

    romance

    and furbabies

    it's a litany of human follies, and the simplicity of the drawings/running gag belies how much work these strips are actually doing. for example, this one:

    is a punch-punch-punch of deflating assumptions and misplaced envy: skill ≠ financial stability, success ≠ happiness, beret or no beret, all blobs are sad blobs, so manage your expectations

    and, like the story of everest, the OH NO just keeps getting funnier and funnier the more it occurs. but also sad. very deeply sad.

    this book is 1/2 all-new strips and 1/2 strips dragged outta here:

    there is also a store for the buying of oh no merch:

    but of course right now it's all sold out OH NO

    someday i will have me that pin.

    i love this book. i am a blob.

    oh no.

    Alex Norris's collection from the widely loved Webcomic Name is full of some of the best comics to date and several that have never been seen before. oh no (named for the comic's running gag) is a unique take on "relatable" webcomics, framing daily disappointments in a truly hilarious way. Norris's occasionally absurd art compliments this off-kilter collection perfectly.

    I received my copy of oh no from Andrews McMeel Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  • Shaimaa

    I have been following Alex Norris on Instagram for a while, so I requested an e-ARC of this book.

    Humorous collection of daily struggles. It captures the gloomy disappointments we encounter from funny angles. I could relate to some of these.

    Oh no might be simple in the visual field (still better than any my attempts to draw something resembling a human being). But it somehow connects well with the content. The fatality and pathos. It fits way better than some elaborated and detailed drawing. And I always call myself pink blob on a bad day, easy to relate.

    Sometimes you as the reader dread to turn the page because you fear what you will see

    Sometimes you as the reader dread to turn the page because you fear what you will see there. It is a window into our own lives. We all are guilty of more than one thing included in this comic.

    It started with me thinking "yes, I know this so well" and going to the fact that I started to think that something is wrong with my life?

    It was a nice short, funny comic.

    And I have to say that my favourite was Mirror mirror on the wall, I did not see this coming at all.

    I'm a big fan of the Instagram account where these comics gained popularity (it has 379k followers), and if you like the Instagram account then you will definitely enjoy this book as it is equally as funny as the relatable comics Norris has become known for.

    While I enjoyed reading this - my rating is more of a 3.5 - I'm not convinced this comic format is suited to book form due to its repetitive structure. This makes a fun coffee table book to dip in and out of but I wouldn't recommend reading i

    I've seen these comics around a lot and I've always quite enjoyed them because a lot of them have the same kind of humour that I have: that is, depressing millennial humour. That being said, in book format this doesn't work quite as well as just seeing them posted in memes on the Internet because it's so repetitive. It's really relatable and cute, though. Oh no.

  • destiny ♡⚔♡ [howling libraries]

    I wasn't familiar with this webcomic aside from seeing one or two bits here and there, but I had liked the ones I'd seen, so I thought this would be cute. It turns out, in fact, that the sense of humor the creator utilizes gets old for me...

    fast. :(

  • Chad

    Oh, no is what I said when I started reading this. There aren't really any jokes here. It's just a pink blob that makes observations and says "Oh no". It was really quite dumb.

  • Scarlet Cameo

    Well, this isn't my cup of tea. Actually, I thnk that the author is just a troll with this book:

    There's s few strips that I enjoy, but mostly is relatable jokes that are way to simple to enjoy it.

    Fun fact: everytime that said 'oh no' my mind remember a Spongebob Squarepants episode so, that's the tune I hear

  • Nikki

    I read about 20% of this and found it really wasn't for me. The drawing style wasn't really to my liking and I found the content to be lackluster. I am DNFing rather than finishing and providing a bad review.
