Fancy is a happy little frog who longs to share his sexual discoveries with all his forest friends. Of all of the comics on my shelf, I think this one received the most attention from friends and acquaintances. It's short, colorful, politically incorrect, and just plain HAPPY. Plus there's an interesting portrait of the artist at the end. Downright hysterical for those with an off-color sense of humor.

What a crazy cat that James Kochalka is. When he's not writing and drawing philisophical comics about whether making comics is an art, a craft, or a science, he might be doing daily four-panel journal strips depicting his trials and tribulations as a father, husband, and cartoonist. Or, he might do a goofy comic about a frog with a boner who has a friend who's a rabbit. Who the heck knows. This isn't my favorite Kochalka project, but I did laugh out loud. Here's to you, James Kochalka!

Terrific book - consists of a series of little vignettes that are perversely funny.
Star of the show, Funky, is pleased to show off his "personal growth" to any and all beings that he encounters. When we finally encounter Uncle Funky (and his cane) the story takes a surprising twist. The Bunnies with Speetcsh Immpedwaments are perpetually clueless (sort of like a Greek Chorus, but fuzzier)
It is good that it promotes the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, because some knucklehead will probably sue.
Great art, in a wonderfully subversive, terrific book.
