For years, Kimchi Cuddles webcomic has floated in and out of my various feeds. It cropped up on Facebook, was shared on Twitter, linked to by other poly bloggers. So when I was asked to review Ask Me About Polyamory: The Best of Kimchi Cuddles, I was already familiar with the webcomic. But I’d never been a regular reader. Having only seen random comics, I got the impression that Kimchi was a series of stand-alone comics, and not an on-going storyline*.
So Ask Me About Polyamory was my first close look at the work of Tikva Wolf.
Gentlepeople, if you only buy one book about polyamory, I encourage you to buy this one. Skip the long wordy explanations writers like myself delight in. You don’t need them. Proving that a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, Tikva has captured the essence of poly life in these delightful comics.
For the first time ever I have not one single criticism to offer. I could go on raving about how much I love this book, but I think you get the point. And I’ve got several years of webcomic archives to catch up on.
*Unlike many comics, Kimchi Cuddles strips work equally well as standalone and series. A quirk that Ask Me About Polyamory makes good use of.
