This is the first of the “38 and Pregnant” graphic series, illustrated by Adhitya Pattisahusiwa. The series has now made into a book "38 and Pregnant", published by Elex Media Komputindo.

Hera Diani, like many Indonesians, has two names and she relishes the fact that Indonesian women do not have to take the surname of their fathers and husbands. Pop culture is her guru, but she is critical of the terrible aspects of it, such as the contents with messages of misoginy and rape culture, and The Kardashians.
