The filthy, funny early work from the acclaimed illustrator and Bojack Horseman production designer

Before the critically acclaimed animated shows, the bestselling graphic novel Coyote Doggirl, or the humor collections Hot Dog Taste Test and My Dirty Dumb Eyes, cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt was a comic-book-industry sensation with her Ignatz Award-winning minicomic series I Want You. Hanawalts outlandish humor and ingenious formalism are evident in the comics collected here. Her love of anthropomorphism and scatology are on full display, all lovingly and grotesquely drawn by Hanawalt in obsessive, unnerving detail.

The stars here are She-Moose, who we join sex-toy shopping, and He-Horse, who we learn mid-flight suffers from ornithophobia. The true star of I Want You may just be Hanawalts hilarious command of the graphic listicle. Top Causes of Freeway Accidents is a prescient pre-BoJack display of Hanawalts love for all things equine. Things We Are Sorry We Did Last Night includes the murder of all Hanawalt's Google doppelgngers. Whether shes discussing the daily commute or masturbation, she packs each comic in I Want You with punchy cultural observations and sharp-witted reflections on typically taboo subjects. A master humorist, Hanawalt strikes the perfect balance between drawing the gorgeous and the repugnant, the fantastical and the lifelike, the bizarre and the hilariouscreating a deeply human experience that everyone can relate to.

Lisa Hanawalt is an artist living in Los Angeles, CA. She is the creator of the animated series Tuca and Bertiewhich will be premiering its second season on Adult Swim in 2021and the production designer/producer on Netflixs Bojack Horseman. Lisa has worked on illustrations, book covers, animations, comics, and textile patterns. She co-hosts the podcast Baby Geniuses with comedian Emily Heller. Lisa has published three previous books with Drawn & Quarterly: My Dirty Dumb Eyes, Hot Dog Taste Test, and Coyote Doggirl.
