From Publishers Weekly
Enter Korgi Hollow, an utterly charming fantasy world brought to life by former Disney animator Slade in book one of Korgi, an epic tale of the friendship between a young girl named Ivy and her dog, Sprout. Ivy and Sprout journey together through perils untold, facing many different foes along the way including dinosaurs, spiders and even a troll so big that he towers over houses. The friends always find their way through the troubles that ensnare them, never losing faith in each other. Like many other successful graphic novels published by Top Shelf, Korgi is silent, relying on Slade's illustrations to both tell the story of Ivy and Sprout and convey the emotions behind their adventures. Slade's illustrations are so expressive and full of life that the pages radiate the feelings of his characters, and the lack of dialogue is hardly noticed. Korgi is as intricately illustrated, rich and fully imagined as an animated film. The character of Sprout himself is adorable in the extreme. While there is some danger of overcuteness at points, few will mind being drawn into this touching, exciting story suitable for fantasy fans of all ages. (Apr.)

On the other hand, it was a cute story with a very cute fantasy world. I liked it ;)
Yes, it takes two minutes to read. You will read it ten times in a day.
Korgi is a simple story of a little girl and her corgi. They have adventures. They fight monsters.
But there's so much more, so much more definition, that the artist layers onto his creation that makes careful and extensive examination of the book worthwhile. Simply looking at a picture of the korgis presented does not satisfy, but looking and mentally dissecting every image does.
Korgi is a sweet (but never saccharine) tale. Share it with someone who likes simple tales. And puppies.
Because it has no words my niece would make a new story with it for a long time, until she got old enough to remember what she said last time. It also really worked out well for her parents so they could always have a new story they could make up to keep their sanity.
The artwork is well done and detailed. Does get slightly darker in tone but again without context of words it is up to you to determine what is happening in the scene but it isn't like it is akin to the Dark Tower or anything.
It's hard to give a plot summary of Korgi due to it having zero dialogue aside from a brief introduction from Wart, the Scrollkeeper of Korgi Hollow. In this world, Korgis live with the Mollies, a group of people who live in the woods, and aren't very strong on their own. Danger lurks about, and they need to be careful, especially because this is where the last known Korgis live! The story starts out introducing us to a Korgi named Sprout, as he takes us to the village while chasing a bug. As he runs about, his Mollie friend, Ivy, follows him. They end up in front of a cave that has some very dangerous images shown above its entrance- two spiders attacking a Korgi! The two are wise enough to not go in, but as they head back, the ground gives in and they fall into what must be the same place the cave led to, as they're now surrounded by tons of monsters! How are a young girl and her small dog going to get out of this mess?
Korgi kept me interested from beginning to end. The drawings, if you haven't seen them yet, have this rough look while still being beautiful and having their own unique style. Once you get through the main comic, there are two pages at the end that give a very short description of the characters, along with their names. I breezed through this book in just a matter of minutes, and would go back every now and then to admire the artwork, like the facial expressions of the Korgis and seeing how Sprout reacted to certain situations. My 6 year old daughter came over as I was going through the book, and she very much enjoyed it [and the second volume] as well.
This is a fantastic book that, while not perfect, is great for all age groups. The only bad thing I can say about it is that, as much as I like the no dialogue thing, it'd be nice to know a little bit more about the characters. Still, pick it up!
