Summary

Unremarkable events of daily life (and not only) in a Roman camp, related through a real cives point of view. Guided by a skilled and ambitious proconsul bound to write History, betrayals, subterfuges, plots and stories alternate, all this with a single aim: Vercingetorige's surrender, barricaded in Alesia. Fabia Claudia and Claudia Fabia, two gourgeous cousins pleading the same cause (and the same man), are sent, along with their husband, on a perilous mission: to mislead Vercassivellauno, a relative of Vercingetorige's, in order to learn about the enemies' vulnerabilities. Thanks to Fabia Claudia and Claudia Fabia's talent, the insignificant and forgotten events of unknown heroes come to connect intimately with the great history of Roman dominion over populations.

    These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all.Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious, showcasing how she became one of the most influential voices in web cartoonists.
