Rachael Smith’s “Wired up Wrong” gets re-release from Icon Books

Rachael Smith’s fantastic graphic memoir, Wired Up Wrong, is getting a world-wide release through Icon Books next month, with a new cover and exclusive new pages.

Hoping to better understand her own brain, award-winning comic-creator Rachael Smith set about documenting her experiences and struggles with anxiety and depression through comic strips.

The resulting book, Wired Up Wrong, is both educating and entertaining, holding a mirror up to all the flattering and unflattering aspects of mental health.

Wired Up Wrong by Rachael Smith - Don't Go Out

Featuring Rufus the cat, Barky, a giant black dog who lives inside her head, and two tiny, imaginary game-show hosts, Comedy Women in Print-shortlisted Rachael Smith’s work is at times light-hearted, others heart-breaking, but always brave and honest.

Rachael Smith is an award-winning comics creator from the UK whose books also include Stand In Your Power, The Rabbit, and Quarantine Comix.

She also worked on the Doctor Who: Tenth Doctor comics for Titan Comics.

Earlier this year, Rachael was part of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival’s renewed Comics Cultural Exchange, working in Prague with the Moravian Regional Library and the FRAME Festival.
