Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Given that Dad has been laid off, the kids have to transfer to a public school and contend with new pressures, and Mom frets that the situation is taking a greater toll, you could easily mistake this Australian import for a standard family drama. But when Dad is fired from his next job for deflowering a virgin in the copy room, Mom seeks advice in a sexual encounter with the church vicar, and the kids are growing bored of sacrificing bread-product effigies of babies at church every Saturday, you realize you�re blazing a new trail into heavy-duty social satire. Although the Sixsmiths are Satanists, they often seem to be the most well-adjusted people in their neighborhood, and the fact that they�re so relatable gives power to the underlying dig at the social conventions that communities tend to promote (and destroy). Droll art pushes the banality of the Satanic lifestyle further still, and although an incongruously sober ending throws the proceedings slightly off kilter, this graphic novel overall offers an enjoyable and insightful commentary. --Jesse Karp

The Sixsmiths are satanists. Yes they are but roughly, it doesn't change anything comparing to other's lives. They have to go to the church, Mr Sixsith lost his job, Mrs Sixsmith got to hold the family together and the children are going to a new school, meaning they have to make new friends, ...

So the Sixsmiths OGN is telling the family life they are experiencing, it's funny (less than the webcomic who was partly printed in a comic-book at SLG), it's thoughtful, it's refreshing. Kind of The Simpsons in Australia and with a satanic background. I really spent a good time with the Sixsmiths and i'm ready for another volume or more webcomic-strips. And big up to Furfur, the Sixsmith's dog.

An average suburban family with typical family-drama problems (dad laid off, kids have to change schools, etc) who also just happen to be devout Satanists. It's a twist that could go wrong in so many ways - Addams Family pastiche, cheesy stereotypical Hollywood Satanism schtick - but it works here and is remarkably believable, thanks to Schmidt/Franks playing it deadpan, albeit not without a sense of humor (I smiled at the Jews For Satan booth, for example). Possibly not for everyone, but I got a kick out of it. Recommended.

Format: Paperback
As the Amazon details for The Sixsmiths make clear, the storyline in this graphic novel concerns an Australian suburban family who happen to be practising Satanists. The satire surrounding the lifestyle they lead is consistently clever throughout the story, and the central characters are remarkably sympathetic. The clean, simple artwork is excellent too, and well complements the narrative. My only quibble concerns a storyline that is left hanging at the conclusion of this book - presumably to be completed in the next volume?

I was very impressed with The Sixsmiths. I bought it expecting Simpsons-like social satire and was happy to discover something that's not only funnier (I was laughing within a few pages) but also more interesting and original.

If you like interesting artwork served on a fluffy bed of highly-fragrant and culturally-literate wit, then this is for you. In my opinion it would be a good present for anyone 15 and above.
