One of the most successful independent film-makers of recent years, Smith is also the writer/director of Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma. He owns a comic book store, Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash in New Jersey. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Bluntman and Chronic are great!
Brett
Comic book lovers will especially enjoy the loving jabs Smith takes at the origins of Green Lantern, Spider-Man, Captain America, and Daredevil, among others.
Daniel V. Reilly
The only problem is that this comic really doesn't do anything to make it stand on it's own & much of the humor in it is pretty repetitive.

Anyone who feels like comic books are exclusively a medium for children would be more than a little surprised by Kevin Smith's histerical "Bluntman and Chronic" graphic novel. Allegedly by "Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards" (the comic book creators in Kevin Smith's movie "Chasing Amy"), this follows a pair of stoner superheroes based on View Askew stars Jay and Silent Bob.
Kevin Smith fans will enjoy this because of the over-the-top comedy and frequent references to the "Askewniverse." But even the steady comic book fan will split a gut reading this book, because just as "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" made fun of any and all movies, THIS makes fun of any and all comic books, with goofs on Green Lantern, Batman, Spider-Man and even a couple of characters near and dear to Kevin Smith himself -- Daredevil and Green Arrow.
A funny, funny book. Check it out.

Okay so it's no William Shakespeare or Alan Moore but it's not suppose to be. Its crude humor at it's best. You really have to be a Kevin Smith fan to enjoy it. The artwork is pretty cool but I would much rather have seen Mike Allred do the book since he did the art in the movie, Chasing Amy. But we are graced with his pop art at the end with the one-shot Smith and Allred did awhile back. The only down side I guess is that it really doesn't take anything serious at all. In Smith's movies we usually get (...)jokes but there is always a serious side to it. But I don't think Smith was trying to do anything other than make us laugh with this book. If you want a serious side of Kevin Smith in comics go read his DareDevil or Green Arrow runs, but if you're looking for some good old fashion stoner, (...)jokes then this is for you. A must own for any Kevin Smith fan.

Format: Paperback
While I know that saying "you have to have seen & liked the other Kevin Smith stuff" seems like a no brainer, there's very much the possibility that someone could pick up this comic & not have been aware of the universe this is a part of. So if you are new to the Kevin Smith world, you'll want to pass over this until you have at least seen Chasing Amy, Mallrats, & Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Those three movies (especially the last one) will give you a good background on the characters, the comic & the overall tone of Smith's work. If you didn't like those movies, well... you aren't going to like this book.

Bluntman & Chronic is the comic book that Holden McNeil & Banky Edwards were working on in Chasing Amy. Now Smith fans can read the comic book that the two were working on, the comic book that sets up the premise for Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.

Overall, I liked the comic well enough. It's got decent artwork that I've come to expect from the View Askew people & I feel that the playful feeling of the art really does help to establish the tongue in cheek ribbing that is aimed at the comic book world in general. The only problem is that this comic really doesn't do anything to make it stand on it's own & much of the humor in it is pretty repetitive. Luckily the comic is pretty short, so the repetitive jokes aren't really repeated for all that long. It's just that after having read some of the other comics put out by Kevin Smith, this really isn't one of the better ones.

Basically, this is something that collectors & die-hards might want to get, but everyone else might want to just borrow their friend's copy instead.

Finally, the LONG delayed Bluntman & Chronic Graphic Novel!! Was the wait worth it? Oh yea!!

Kevin Smith and Mike Avon Oeming (Under the guise of Banky Edwards and Holden McNeil) deliver big laughs as they tell the origin of the "Queer Duo" and their arch-enemies, whose group name is hilariously unprintable (At least here....). Comic book lovers will especially enjoy the loving jabs Smith takes at the origins of Green Lantern, Spider-Man, Captain America, and Daredevil, among others. The book also includes the hard-to-find story from Oni Double Feature, in color for the first time. All in all, a great book, loaded with laughs. (And MUCH more obscene than you could ever imagine!!)

Finally! I was waiting to buy this comic so long ago ...

I am a huge Kevin Smith fan and of course I love the characters of Jay and Silent Bob. This comic actually brings em to new adventures and a lot of funny puns.

Totally recommend it to any Kevin Smith fan. BUNG!
