Fowl Language: Welcome to Parenting is here to let you know that you're not alone. Parenting is hard and often gross. Laughing about it helps. If you liked Toddlers Are A**holes, you'll love Fowl Language!
Parenting can be a magical journey full of bliss and wonder . . . if you're on the right meds. For the rest of us, it's another thing altogether. Fowl Language Comics takes an unvarnished look at the tedium and aggravation of parenting, while never forgetting that the reason we put up with those little jerks is that we love them so damn much. By poking fun at the daily struggles parents face, these cartoons help all of us feel less alone in our continual struggle to stay sane.

Review quote

"[Brian Gordon] is shamelessly creating funny-because-it's-true parenting comics-and we can't stop laughing at them." (Popsugar) "He covers many topics, but it's his hilarious parenting comics that are resonating with moms and dads everywhere." (Upworthy) "... a funny, sweet and often expletive-filled look at parenting. The comics perfectly capture what parenting is like today-the good, the bad, and everything in between, all through a hilarious lens." (Huffpost Parents) "If there's one dad in particular who perfectly captures these terrible yet humorous moments in parenting, it's Brian Gordon." - ( "Gordon dives deep into all the parts of parenting that are painful and aggravating and WHYDON'TYOUMAKEANYSENSE!? But somehow because everyone looks like a cute duck, he makes you laugh instead of cry." - Jonathan H. Liu, GeekDad (Jonathan H. Liu, GeekDad) "'Fowl Language': Dad's cartoons show what it's REALLY like to be a parent" - ( "One great way to welcome newbie parents to the parenting club is to show them, through hilarious comics, just what they can expect ... Brian Gordon has the perfect book of comics for the occasion, Fowl Language: Welcome To Parenting." (Hollis Miller, Huffington Post)

About Brian J. Gordon

A million years ago, Brian Gordon spent his time staying out late, hitting the clubs and eating at fancy restaurants.

And then suddenly ... CHILDREN. While he loved being a dad more than anything else, he also noticed that at times, parenting can be a total crap-fest.

In the summer of 2013, Brian began drawing Fowl Language as a fun (and often profane) way to vent his frustrations. After getting laid off from his job as a greeting card artist, he decided to pursue the comic full-time. His work quickly became an Internet viral sensation, and is shared regularly by millions of people all over the world.
