A hilarious slice of twentysomething life in the twenty-first century

Welcome to the Girl Juice House, home of only the hottest gang in town. Benji Nate’s stylish and rambunctious sense of humor lovingly takes digs at the young and tragically hip–reserved and introspective Nana, comically hypersexual Bunny, fledgling U-tuber Tula, and Designated Mom™ Sadie–as they navigate life, love, and the pursuit of a good time.

Girl Juice flaunts the gloriously messy and hilariously self-indulgent day-to-day hijinks of four young women doing the most. Watch them bicker over making rent and come up with creative solutions for getting there! Cringe as they attend an adult prom! Split your sides as they try their hand at camping! Cower as they confront their mommy issues, and cheer as they battle inner demons that feed off attention-seeking behavior!

Nate’s colorful attention to detail and gift balancing for graphic hyperbole with subtle comedy are a deep, much-needed breath of fresh air. With front-facing cameras ever at the ready, Girl Juice is a snappy reminder that the time of your life is always just a text away.

Benji Nate is a Puerto Rico-born cartoonist whose works include Lorna, Catboy, and Hell Phone. She is currently hiding out in the Ozarks with her husband, three cats, and dog.

“Not just, ‘hot and simple,’ Girl Juice tells the story of being young, disillusioned, and horny. A fun read especially if you’re in the mood to ‘feel alive and cry a lil.’ Also, a heartfelt thank you to Benji Nate for introducing the acronym DMILF to my vocabulary.” —Aminder Dhaliwal, author of Woman World and Cyclopedia Exotica

“Benji Nate’s slice-of-life-but-funnier-and-grosser-than-usual Girl Juice illustrates the beautiful camaraderie that can only be built by being in close proximity, annoying, and horny to one another on a long-term basis. Frankly, I’d be scared to encounter any of these characters at a party, knowing what I now know about their sexual secrets.” —Rebecca Kirby, creator of BEEEEFF!! and BIG MILK

Girl Juice is the funniest comic I’ve read in ages. It takes me back to being 20, surrounded by roommates whose dildos are in the kitchen sink and whose dogs are the ones paying their rent. You can tell that this book is not only about girls, but is written for them. I wish more comics were like it.” —Caroline Cash, cartoonist of PeePeePooPoo

“Benji Nate really hit it out of the park with this light-hearted, hilarious comic.”—Broken Pencil

“Quirky and stylish.”—Publishers Weekly

“[Benji Nate] is establishing new territory in comics… [her] art stands outside expectation.”—Comics Beat
