Lois Gilbert's comic book Lois, co-written with Harvey Pekar, author of American Splendor Comics, and illustrated by DC Comic's Gary Dumm pokes fun at many of her life's frustrations. Some of her adventures include encounters with cockroaches that are so big that they "could be eating on all twelve floors of the building", the frustrations of finding too many types of bras to choose from (including a defense bra with a compartment for mace) and learning to make people laugh as a stand-up comedian when at the beginning nobody laughed at all. There is no doubt that Lois Gilbert's comic book Lois will make you chortle, chuckle, giggle, smirk, snicker, cackle and just plain laugh out loud.
