Parenting can be a magical journey full of bliss and wonder . . . if you're on the right meds. For the rest of us, it's another thing altogether. Fowl Language Comics takes an unvarnished look at the tedium and aggravation of parenting, while never forgetting that the reason we put up with those little jerks is that we love them so damn much. By poking fun at the daily struggles parents face, these cartoons help all of us feel less alone in our continual struggle to stay sane.
Brian Gordon, creator of Fowl Language Comics, has two small children of his own and knows well the trials and tribulations that go along with raising them. With more than eighteen years of experience in humorous illustration, writing, and cartooning, Brian's visual point of view is memorable, authentic, and instantly recognizable. From Brian: "They say 'write what you know.' Well, I don’t know much, but I do know what it’s like to be the father of two brilliant, beautiful, bat-shit-crazy kids."
Launched in July 2013, the relatable humor of Fowl Language broke out on HuffPost Parents, Pop Sugar Moms, Bored Panda, Awkward Family Photos, and countless other humor and parenting blogs. Thanks to more than 200,000 fans on social media, including Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram, it continues to grow in popularity at a rapid pace.


Your parenting pain in comics (5 stars)

Being a parent is awesome...ly difficult. Fortunately, there are millions of people out there who know your pain. Be it the epic saga of trying to get a toddler to eat or the nights and days of sleeplessness and diaper blow-outs, you are far from alone. Even better, all of your struggles can be pretty funny when you think about it.

It's been a while since I picked up a humor book that gave me genuine chuckles from cover to cover. Fowl Language comics have crossed my social media feeds plenty of times but this collected tome has some of my favorites and reminded me that we're all just trying to keep our spawn alive and thriving. Sometimes even asking for the latter is a stretch. But a good dose of humor about it can make it the one job you'll look back on fondly... in another 18 years anyway.

If you're a parent or know a parent-to-be I recommend you pick this one up and share the laughs. Makes a great baby shower gift! Loved it!
