Girls Steal Your Beauty by Ingrid Pierre collects seven short stories about gender, child birth, and parenting. Focusing on her apprehension of the role she’s assumed to adopt—mother—Ingrid has crafted a set of tales that are personal and unsettling. The result is an exploration into pregnancy and childbirth through a lens of body horror and the supernatural.
Ingrid’s unifying and limited color pallet, and her naturalistic figure drawing grounds these comics in a terrifying reality. Biting dark humor, and intimate moments help make these powerful stories captured in just a few short pages each!
