Valérie Minelli's global hit web-comic, Mrs. Follein, is collected for the first time in a deluxe hardcover.
Valérie Minelli’s tremendously popular Mrs. Frollein comics have been stirring emotion in people all over the world with heartfelt and earnest strips making fun of the mundane. These perfectly poignant web-comics find inspiration in the everyday, encompassing rainy coffee mornings, playful relationship adventures, and quiet introspective moments. The small, unexpected minutes that quilt life together. In addition to many of the most recent fan-favorite Mrs. Frollein strips, Small Hours also includes twenty-five all-new, never before released comics as well as a foreword from fellow web-comic luminaries, Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich of War and Peas.

We all stop scrolling through our feed every time a comic strips pops up, don’t we? The illustrations are always too cute not to catch our eye, and when we read the panels we can’t help having a laugh because how much truth is there in these strips?

This collection of comics is a fast read, but funny and heart-warming. Mrs. Frollein and her boyfriend are the cutest, their relationship and everyday life—not only as a couple—definitely serve their purpose and make you relate to quite a few situations, some of which may have you smile big time. I’m actually still smiling to a few, so much that it made me think Minelli captured some scenes from my own life. Indeed, Minelli’s work is just that honest and genuine, and the reason why I appreciated Small Hours.

An adorable and relatable comic to enjoy anytime. If you’re up for it, get cosy and ready to smile, it will make you feel like you’re not alone in your quirkiness. *wink*
