Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Who knew dogs could have office politics? Eichler, the executive producer of the animated series Daria and a writer for The Colbert Report, infuses this graphic novel with plenty of dry humor and sarcasm. These are no ordinary household dogs; they are sled dogs that need to work together as a team to ensure survival for both themselves and their humans. Each of the six dogs has a unique personality and they all live and work together, which leads to frayed nerves and tenuous alliances. At the same time, their humans sort through their own issues arising from the close quarters and isolation of their snowy habitat. Infurnari’s pleasant artwork mostly hones in on the dogs’ facial expressions as they jabber among themselves, but handily carries out a few action sequences as well. With drama to match the humor, this graphic novel will appeal to comics readers looking for more cerebral story lines and dialogue from their anthropomorphized animal characters. --Candice Mack

This book captures the thoughts of sled dogs perfectly. If you're a musher, or even a dog lover, you will appreciate the humor of this well written comic.

Format: Paperback
This glimpse into the lives of a team of sled dogs who love nothing more than to RUN! and the two humans who live two days out from any civilization isn't too interesting. I liked learning about lead dogs, wheel dogs and the hierarchy of the pack, but frankly, otherwise it's mundane. It probably will appeal to middle school boys with all the frank talk of hoped-for sex, boy-girl-boy intrigue and the polity of the pack. I can't think the soporific story between the two humans would appeal to anyone. Although interesting, I didn't find the illustrations to be that intriguing, and they were encumbered with obsessive onomatopoeia.

With one successful and one unsuccessful foray into the graphic novel genre, I approached Mush!: Sled Dogs With Issues with some trepidation.

To be honest, I didn't pay much attention to what was being said initially, because I was too busy checking out the illustrations. I was really taken with the dogs and their distinct personalities. The action leaps off the page, thanks to Infurnari's work.

The story is interesting, but a bit odd. It really is like peeking in on a dysfunctional office.

My verdict: Read it! I'm going to put this in the "win" column for graphic novels. Quirky and entertaining.
