Greg Cook is known for the curly, fun elegance of his simple, stripped down drawing style, usually showcased in hard-to-find minicomics and high-end, artsy comix anthologies. "Catch As Catch Can" is Cook's first real-live solo book, I think, and it does not disappoint.
The story and the art both are a bit more complex here than in some of Cook's other stories. The pictures pulse with swirls and wacky shifts of perspective. One main character is a Gingerbread Man... driving an ice-cream truck... and smoking cigarettes. Suffice to say, he is not the best influence on the youngsters who patronize his truck. Eventually we are pulled into a car chase with the cops. This story is sometimes a bit edgey and is meant for adults and older kids, preferably with a slightly twisted sense of humor.
Greg Cook is a young, up-and-coming alternative comic artist with a literary and sometimes historical bent. Here we get nothing but good old fun. Fans of quality non-superhero comics owe it to themselves to check him out. A recommended romp.
