More About the Author

Rick Griffin is an author based out of Madison, Alabama. He has a dog named Apollo and once rode him bareback up the slopes of Kilimanjaro in an attempt to lasso the sun. For three days and nights they climbed, eating nothing but snow and ice, but the sun evaded them, staying ever out of reach. Then Rick snatched an eagle out of the air and rode it to the moon. From there, his rope reached the sun, but he was unable to pull it back down to earth. So he leaped off the moon's surface, riding the orbit counter the earth's for six month until they met in the middle. Rick pulled the sun home, and met Apollo at his front door. However, Apollo still refused to play fetch with anything larger than his head.

I love the webcomic, and I hope that the next books come out quickly, because I'll definitely buy them, too.
Chloraak
Often, after reading one of the comic strips, I like to look at and examine his characters out of appreciation of his artwork and character design.
Nicholas Jarak
Just epic story's, awesome pictures, great humor, would definitely suggest to anyone who loves animals and loves comics and awesomeness.

I knew nothing of Rick Griffin, or Housepets, or anything relayed to the artist or genre, really. And even today, I still don't know how I was led to it on Amazon. But I was, and it looked funny, so I bought it. I am really, really glad I did.

Griffin manages to do several things that make a strip successful. He keeps each strip fully self-contained, and at the same time keeps the arc of the story going. The characters are instantly endearing, and you very quickly care about them and the world they live in. And that is the delicate balancing act that Griffin achieves; he manages to neatly sidestep the many problems that quickly sink amateur comics. He avoids the "fanboy" approach, where the creator insists on beating the audience over the head with the nuances of their created world; he simply plays the story out, and lets the details emerge in their own time, unforced.

And his art is fun to look at. Right from the get-go, his clean lines and well-drawn perspective and anatomy tell you that he knows what he's doing, but it's really in the details; facial expressions, small environmental details, and gestures---all things crucial to a well-drawn strip---are a blast to look at, and constantly entertain.

Of course, none of this would mean anything if the strip weren't funny. And funny it is, very often on the laugh-out-loud side. The characters with their nuances and relationships are all grin-inducing, and I found myself laughing aloud at least twice a page. Occasionally, the strip is touching or even dramatic, but it is the humor that keeps the strip rolling, and keeps the viewer wanting more.

I think it says a lot about a comic artist when they put as much into their creation as Rick Griffin does, and if more artists did, then the world would be a brighter place.

This comic is available online for free on the website that the author made specially for this comic, but I loved it so much that I had to buy a physical copy of part of it. I was on the fence on the matter of buying this since it's available on the website, but I finally convinced myself by also considering the fact that I could use it as a chance to evaluate the quality of the publisher that Rick Griffin used, Create Space. I'm glad I bought it. It is fun to have a physical copy of part of the comic I like to read on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Now, I can easily show it around to friends and family when I talk about it.

On the matter of the content of the comic itself, it is excellent. It is one of the funniest comics I've read. When reading this comic on the website, it had me laughing and smiling at it's jokes around every five minutes. Not only is it funny, but when it gets serious it can be quite compelling and very interesting. I really ended up feeling for some of the characters at certain moments, and there have been many moments when I couldn't wait to see what happens next. It is obvious that Rick Griffin's main objective is to make the comic humorous, and he's definitely succeeded.

One of my favourite aspects of this comic is the artwork. Rick Griffin is an excellent artist. His ability to make his character's emote with some of the smallest changes is a testament to that, and he definitely knows how to use the medium of a comic to portray his scenes. Sometimes he'll go from one frame to another and change nothing but a single character's expression, and that one adjustment changes the entire meaning of the scene. I have great respect for Rick Griffin as an artist and his understanding of how to depict characters and their emotions.

First I'll start off by saying that the print job is fantastic. The pages feel sturdy and the ink contrasts perfectly with the paper for easy reading. While I still would have preferred a hardcover copy, its nice have a physical copy of the webcomic I follow religiously.

A great way to get your friends and family into Housepets:
1. Purchase this book.
2. Leave on coffee table or commons area.

It's about half black and white and half color, just as the web-comic switches over, so does the book.

If your a fan of the comic, pick it up and support Rick, if you're new to Housepets check out the web-comic first to see if you like it: [...]

Housepets comic is something I have to recommend to anyone who likes funny animal comics. Mint condition quality and incredible speed of delivery just round out something that is already a must-have for personal comic libraries.

This comic is great. It is a refreshing break from the traditional newspaper comics. Will buy the other books eventually.
