Big Jo Comic Review

EP 05 - There Goes My Hero - 5 | Big Jo

Jo is a teenage girl who happens to be on the larger end of the weight spectrum. Some people like to bother and bully her for it, but she refuses to let herself be walked on and instead fights back. When I first read this webtoon’s description which literally starts “Jo doesn’t take crap from no one”, I thought that it would be a story about a girl who was a bully, but of course wasn’t a “real bully” because she had been bullied before over her weight and was just taking it out on others. However, Jo is actually a really nice girl, and is only even slightly mean to people when they are bullying her first. She has her own group of “misfit” friends, and loves to read. When a boy who is on the soccer team is dared to become her friend, she thinks that he is going to help her lose weight, and allows him to teach her new sports. This starts a rather unconventional, yet somewhat sincere relationship between the two as the boy teaches her how to “get fit”.

This story may seem to be typical, “Athlete guy falls in love with geeky/nerdy/unfit girl” but it’s really not. There is a lot of different parts of this storyline and none of the characters seem flat. This story also gets into the issue of healthy and nonhealthy weight loss, and other issues such as true popularity. This webtoon updates every tuesday, and I recommend anyone looking for a realistic life comic to read this one.

Overall Rating: 5/5
