Tinderella is an autobiographical comic about online dating, living poor and being a dumb 20-something. Intense work out sessions, a series of unsatisfying Tinder dates, and a bout of pink-eye; over confident and crude, Harkness's work is hilarious and emotionally agonizing. Tinderella is M.S. Harkness’ debut graphic novel.

“While Harkness is far from the first cartoonist to explore the hilarious highs and pathetic lows of modern dating, the material feels fresh—even new—owing to her unbelievably fearless, unflinching depiction of herself.” — Library Journal
“Harkness reaches for something deeper and more emotionally resonant [and] proves she is cartoonist worth watching.” — The Comics Journal
“MS Harkness has created a perfectly satisfying narrative about a wholly unsatisfying sting of Tinder dating… her comics are the millennial inheritor to Peter Bagge’s Grunge era throne.” — Mardou, Sky in Stereo
“Harkness is a smart, tough, fearless cartoonist.” — Kevin Huizenga, A River at Night
