"My Dirty Dumb Eyes is the highly anticipated debut collection from
award-winning cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt. In a few short years, Hanawalt
has made a name for herself: her intricately detailed, absurdly funny

Her wild sense of humor contrasts strikingly with the carefully rendered lines and flawless draftsmanship that are Hanawalt trademarks. Whether she's revealing the secret lives of celebrity chefs or explaining that what dogs really want is a tennis-ball bride, My Dirty Dumb Eyes will have readers rolling in the aisles, as Hanawalt's insights into human (and animal) behavior startle and delight time and again."
