"Hilarious, adorable, and consistently funny, Awkward Yeti is one of my favorite comics on the web right now." (Matthew Inman, The Oatmeal)
"I have something to tell you as an award-winning, thirty-year veteran of cartooning who is very hard to impress; The Awkward Yeti is worth your time. If you don't agree, we probably wouldn't be friends." (Dan Piraro, Bizarro Comics)
The book is effing hilarious! (Jon Cryer)
About the Author
The Awkward Yeti was created by cartoonist Nick Seluk in late 2012, followed by the Heart and Brain spinoff in 2014.
Nick pursued his lifelong dream of being a professional cartoonist after serving nine years in the corporate world as a graphic designer. In his childhood, he drew inspiration from classics like Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, Garfield, and The Simpsons.
Nick lives with his wife, three young kids, and a lovable, ornery old dog in the suburbs of Detroit.
Heart and Brain, and a growing cast of organs can be found at theAwkwardYeti.com and on most social media sites.

I went by the Go Comics booth, and soon as I saw the flyer (see below) I KNEW this was going to be something I HAD TO HAVE. Both sides are SO dead on as to how my brain and heart work, I was amazed.
I was also lucky enough to get a drawing from Nick, summing up how I feel about Comic Con! (see below) (Hall B has the Go Comics and Comic Society booth, as well as other faves, Sheldon by Dave Kellett, Lonnie Milsap, and Keith Knight, my faves).
FINALLY, the book came out and it did NOT disappoint! The comics are funny and dead on to the struggle between what you WANNA do, and what you GOTTA do. The art is a delight and the colors REALLY pop. The book is also very well printed.
Can't WAIT for another book!
Why should YOU buy this book? Ask yourself: Are you a fan of utter nonsense? Have you ever felt like your brain and heart were at odds? Do you wonder what that last question would look like personified in cartoon form? What are your thoughts on pizza? Oops, sorry, I got off topic on that last one. Where was I? Oh, yeah...
Nick Seluk is one of my favorite cartoonists. Okay, that's a lie. He's actually my favorite cartoonist at the moment (along with Doug Savage of Savage Chickens). I grew up with The Far Side as my all-time-favorite gold standard comic (and was heartbroken when Gary Larson stopped publishing). Likewise, Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes was clever and funny and charming, but that too ended. The Awkward Yeti, and Heart and Brain, bring back memories of these cartoons and also bring a big smile to my face.
The strips combine the perfect balance of goofy drawings, endearing silliness, clever dialogue, balloon-toting butterflies, business tie-wearing brains, and an abundance of exuberant hopefulness.
I'm giving away a few copies as gifts, but I will definitely keep my own copy within easy reach on the bookshelf (with room for future Awkward Yeti books to come).
So I bought a book with Awkward Yeti, featuring the characters "Heart and Brain" and enjoyed revisiting old FB memes and discovering new comics. The Brain waking the Awkward Yeti in the middle of the night with long-forgotten social disasters. The Heart running off in every direction trying to find its passion. The butterfly drifting through adding lively hope. And a couple times the stomach popping up with its own special demands, such as during a serious discussion about the most pressing questions of the time - world peace, does alien intelligence exists, and should we order nachos or pizza. (both please)
If you like Awkward Yeti, send some Heart the author's way by buying one of his books. Or if you find truth in the Awkward Yeti's humor, send some Brain the author's way by posting a review from his book.
The book is terrific and is mostly comics I've not seen before--and I looked up everything I could find online. It has good quality paper, and clean. bright color. This is what everyone is getting for Christmas. It's definitely deserving of five stars.
Reading along, I found myself thinking, "Exactly, so true!" while laughing at the antics of Heart (sunshine and optimism) and Brain (logic and worry). As the two *mostly* balance each other out, it is a refreshing read I plan to go through many times.
