"Illustrator Dami Lee has figured out how to craft a cartoon that's both whimsically humorous but also speaks to contemporary awareness of globalism and identity."The Art Attackpodcast

Why do things in moderation when you can just doeverything? Cartoonist Dami Lee's hilarious four-panel comic collection illustrates her experience navigating identity, relationships, pop culture, and misunderstandings about basic human interactions.

From growing up as a South Korean immigrant kid in the foreign land of Texas to finding her home as a professional cartoonist in cyberspace, Lee laughs at it all. With favorite selections from Dami's massively popular webcomicAs Per Usual, as well as many never-before-seen comics,Be Everything at Once is earnestly relatable and endlessly funny, full of (mostly) true stories for anyone who obsesses over their favorite snacks, struggles to take the best selfie, tears up at the sight of a perfect dog, or is maybe just trying to find their place.

• Humor for anyone who has ever felt out-of-place and overworked
• A mix of relatable moments and personal stories
• Comic strip format book of stories from a modern young woman

"Spontaneity in human form. That's how I'd describe Dami Lee, going by her new book Be Everything At Once: Tales of a Cartoonist Lady Person. She depicts herself in both comics and writing as an eccentric, impulsive, memey, smiley, anxious, awkward woman with the occasional quarter-life crisis- and she does so in a very genuine, exposed way."

"If it isn't already obvious why you should buy and read Be Everything At Once, here are a few more reasons...the book is so, so funny. Plus, you learn a bit about what it's like to acclimate to United States-ian culture, especially as a child. And, most importantly, you learn to stop taking yourself too seriously. Reading this book gives you a great kick in the pants to just take it easy on yourself. Just be you. Embrace it. Embrace you...Buy it, read it, and then re-read it. Then share it. You'll find something (or many things) in it which make you feel good about your own life experience. And you'll end up laughing at yourself and along with the comic."

"Earnestly relatable and enduringly funny, anyone who obsesses over snacks, struggles to balance their passion with their day job, or feels like they are trying to find their place in life, will find this book unnervingly relatable."
-Happiful Magazine

"Be Everything at Once roasts pop culture, upends modern lifestyles, and gets real with the social insight. Dami Lee has a unique eye for the oddities around us, and she lays them out in a playful, often weird, and always hilarious voice."
