getoveritbigger’s new graphic novel, ! (Secret Acres), details the true-life story of a messy breakup.  Through a series of comic vignettes, the story follows the author as she deals with a  serious relationship’s end, and eventually learns the tough lessons of letting go. “Get Over It!” is a hilarious tale about a subject every decent person can relate to: getting BURNED BY LOVE.

 

 “Corinne Mucha’s Get Over It! is a balm for the heart broken… We’re bombarded with romance all the time; rarer is the tale that gets you to root for the life-giving joys of letting go.”- Kevin Tang, Buzzfeed

 

“(In Get Over It!) Mucha maintains the auto-biographical sweet-spot, maintaining a balance between the personal and involved, without descending into narcissism, whilst hilariously dredging through the universal impulses and emotions of the post break-up period.” –Zainab Ahktar, Publisher’s Weekly
