“The author makes the story a compelling read, with charming artwork and humor.” – Ellen Forney, author of Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me

This book tells the story of two young women who go through two different abortions (medical and surgical). It begins with the moment they decide to have abortions, and follows them through the process of choosing a clinic, reaching out to friends, partners, and family... and eventually the procedure itself.

Hayes uses the graphic novel format to demystify what can be a very intimidating and often lonely experience. Like no other book out there,
Not Funny Ha-Ha is a little bit technical, a little bit moving, and an often funny book intended to communicate and comfort.

“I want everyone who is having, has had, or is considering abortion to have this book. I want everyone who is close to someone who has had, is having or is considering abortion to have this book. I want anyone who feels like they just don’t or can’t understand what it’s like to go forward with, or even think about, abortion as an option to have this book. Really, I just want everyone to have this book, period.” – Heather Corinna (founder and director, Scarleteen: Sex ed for the real world)

“The lens is trained on process and facts, not on motivation or moralit … It’s hard to remain neutral when discussing abortion, but Hayes’ repeated caveats (I’m just a cartoonist; talk to your doctor about anything; this is just informational) do their damnedest to situate her work outside politics and religion. That’s a noble goal.” – Hillary Brown
