Alison Wong had been sharing her comics online via her website and Facebook page for a while when she decided to create New Mom Comics: The First Year, a book compilation of a year’s worth of hilarious realities and adventures in parenthood. Alison is one of just a handful of female comic book writers and brings both her SAHM and Working Mom experiences to her comics and the book. Each strip is based on Wong’s real life experiences. The book chronicles the first year of parenting in over 55 comics, and it can easily be read as a weekly visual diary. Every parent will be able to relate to the stresses of “is baby breathing” to “phantom cries” that prevent a peaceful shower! And since this is a book, and can live forever by passing it on to other Mommy friends or by being recycled – it’s default-green!
