I know that I am overweight

comic book

“I know that I am overweight” is a two part graphic novel by Sari Sariola. The book deals with the subjects of body neutrality, mental health and sexuality. All of the subjects from the point of view of an obese person. What is it like to be too big to this world? When you can’t fit into the seats of busses, cars or planes. Not to mention about having sex. It often requires acrobatic abilities to make a big body stretch into different positions. Also the depression rates within obese people are alarming, but is it the overweight that causes the depression or the other way around?

The first part of the graphic novel is coming out in March 2023 at the Tampere Kuplii comic festival. The second part will be out by the March 2024. It is published by Zum Teufel.
