Biff has odd antennas growing out of his head, yet he acts like an intuition free idiot! Biff is the only character in this book.
Conflicts? There are lots of conflicts in this story: Biff vs himself, Biff fights his own idiocy, Biff vs society, Biff vs technology, Biff vs the peanut butter jar, Biff vs. intelligence, You name it.
This book is kind of funny and is definitely ridiculous. This is satire aimed at explaining the behaviors, flaws and habits of unusual people like Biff, and the flaws in the way humans analyze and over analyze each other.
It's really hard to compare "the Book of Biff" to anything else. It's a one-panel comic with only one character (even nameless extras do not exist) and no dialogue. Jokes are told entirely through the visuals and a single-sentence caption, usually explaining some avante-garde absurdity that Biff has stumbled his way into. The gags are clever and often bizarre, yet also somehow strangely charming in their airy, detached indifference to poor Biff's perennial suffering.
In a world full of aggressively formulaic comic strips, the gentle humor of Biff is enormously refreshing. Never predictable, yet always familiar, Hallbeck's little world tickles the brain in a pleasant way.
From a technical perspective, Biff's clean lines and solid colors are well-suited to the Kindle format, and the book looks great on the device. Though some strips are a little more muddy than others (all were converted from full-color to greyscale), all are entirely readable and crisply rendered.
For only 99 cents, this early volume is a wonderful introduction to a great comic.
The problem lies in the captions, which range from boring to lame. The repetition of the phrase "Biff realizes . . ." becomes grating after only a few cartoons, and better captions are so obvious that one wants to just cross out the existing wording and write in something, anything, better.
Hopefully the author will improve the captions in the future, and perhaps even go back and reissue this book with better captions.
A note on the ebook version: These cartoons are much more powerful in black and white than they are in color. The ebook version will give you a much better experience.
Definitely worth the price.
Once you get past the weird, exaggerated eyebrows, there is a lot of originality and humor here.
