"I never wanted to be a teacher or lawyer. I never wanted to be anything, really." Stuck working mind-numbing temp jobs, Penny Nichols yearns to break free from the rut she's found herself in. When, by chance, she falls in with a group of misfits making a no-budget horror movie called "Blood Wedding," everything goes sideways. Soon her days are overrun with gory props, failed Shakespearean actors, a horny cameraman, and a disappearing director. Somehow Penny must hold it all together and keep the production from coming apart at the seams. This hilarious original graphic novel is a loving tribute to the chaos and camaraderie of DIY filmmaking, and the ways we find our future -- and our family -- in the unlikeliest of places.

One of the funniest graphic novels I've ever read. I literally laughed out loud several times!

Enjoyable but not profound, 'Penny Nichols' by MK Reed tells a kind of 20-something coming-of-age story in the context of making a DIY slasher film. A humorous portrayal of an atypical woman following her dream.

I loved this charming, funny graphic novel! It follows Penny, a sarcastic 26-year-old temp worker who has no idea what she wants to do with her life until she finds herself working on a low budget horror movie. It's expressively drawn, super readable, and had me seriously LOLing throughout. It also has a good dose of heart as it explores finding your passion and the people who build you up rather than tear you down.
