"Wash Day DiariesÂ uses interwoven short stories on each character's hair routines as analogies to their daily life, showing how the process of caring for their hair sparks joy." - The Week
Starred Review "The motif of wash day- as the women wash their own hair and others’, go to the salon, and get braids-invites the reader into the rhythm of their lives, with welcome inclusivity of queer romance, as well as non romantic story lines. This subtle but heartwarming homage to friendship, feminism, and reconciliation sings." - Publisher's Weekly
"A loving tribute to Black women and their community with a humorous day in the life graphic novel."
"Wash Day Diaries is both whimsical and incredibly real. It is as refreshing and restorative a narrative for the soul as a wash day is to your hair. One of my favorite reads of the last year - I think this team is unstoppable, and the new voice of slice of life comics."Â
-Vita Ayala (New Mutants, The Wilds)
"Smith’s charming and inviting art invites comic book readers old and new to lose themself in this joyful and touching celebration of Black joy and sisterhood that cements the duo of Rowser and Smith as one of comics most powerful creative teams."
