Several more pages came out as we watched her handling the book very gently.

I love this comic but I guess I was hoping for too much with this book.

PX! was originally presented as a webcomic. There's no reason to hold this against it. If anything, as it was in my case, viewing the comic online should be the very first motivation for new readers to purchase this book. You will instantly fall in love with it. The characters, including Wikkity Jones, Weatherby, Dahlia and her panda, and Pollo, since this first book spends so much time introducing them, become instant classics, a set of future Pixar digital creations in printed form who both understand the importance of personality and the need to move a story along. Dahlia, the girl in the title, is searching for her father, who's been kidnapped by Pollo, the evil goat mastermind, the Johnny Come Lately bent on world domination. His defeat is easy to foresee and a pleasure to follow, and it's all the better because he really doesn't seem to mind, a villain with another plan visible in his back pocket, fodder for a sequel you won't see coming but will be more than willing to embrace. All the knowing nods to familiar story devices are completely disarmed by Manny Trembley and Eric Anderson's command of their, in the end, very original creation, a journey through a landscape where there seems to be nothing new under the sun. And yet, you've read nothing like this before, and it will be impossible to forget.

Format: Paperback
As has been noted, this comic started out on the web. I like the print format better because you don't have to wait 3 1/2 days just to read the next page. But at the same time, not having to wait does make the comic seem a bit rushed. (Which is the only conceivable draw back to this book.)

The characters are crazy enough to be extremely entertaining, but complex enough to touch your heart. The art work is amazing, and fits the writing brilliantly. The two together definitely hooked me the moment I saw them.

The plot is fairly predictable, (I think it was intended to be that way), but the storytelling makes it readable time and time again.

PX! is an incredibly fun ride from start to finish. The biggest complement that I can give this book is the fact I bought it in print when I could read it on the web for free!

Format: Paperback
In PX! Book One: A Girl and Her Panda, we are taken for a roller-coaster ride through terrain unfamiliar yet eerily pink. The metaphor of Panda as Property (hence the possessive "Her" in the title) reflects the suppression of Nature by Not-Nature. Our Earth-hugging ways are tossed out the window, however, when it is revealed that the Panda is nuclear-powered - can solar panels be far behind? The grunting visage of Pollo apparently clarifies the authors' intent: This is a clarion call to avert the innocent rush toward a mechanized, dehumanized world, where roller skates become the primary form of bipedal locomotion. The coolness of Wikkity is perfectly balanced by the primness of Weatherby, the primordial innocence of Dahlia at the core of the triumvirate giving them the strength to ward off the constant onslaught of ninjas and robots that bedevil their quest. This is tale telling of an epic, Homerific scale, not to be seen again in our lifetime - or until Book Two appears!!

By Robert Kiefer on October 30, 2008
Format: Paperback
PX! is an awesome online comic that earned two Eisner nominations in its first year. The Eisner is the top award in the comic industry.
This book is a compilation of the first story they ran, and includes extra material and stories that help shed light on the origins of this webcomic and its creators.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes a good adventure story, comics, or great artwork. Oh, and if you like Victorian English spies, robots, and ninja-killing roller-skating assasins, this is DEFINITELY your cup of tea!!! [...]

If you like what you see, then support these fine artists and buy their book!!
