From the creator of the "Savage Chickens" webcomic comes an all-new three-story graphic novel. The stories deliver on the absurd premise of a moose who shoots laser beams from his eyes.
The webcomic is, at most, a few panels on a single page. Books are longer, multi-page affairs. I was worried that this book would be similar to a collection of Dilbert comics --- only a collection of short jokes. My fears were unfounded. Savage makes a successful transition to this new medium.
(1) The strange but insightful humor of the webcomic is retained and remains fresh
(2) The art, plot, and dialog both flow well without appearing to be single-page gags
(3) Splash pages surprise the reader as pages are turned
(4) The use of color is not overdone and does not distract
This is definitely a comic book that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. I could cite examples from the book or the webcomic, but that would not do the book justice and would only spoil the fun.
The verdict? Fantastic! Doug's style is clean lines, fun graphics and cute characters! The stories are fun to read. Caveat: I don't even have kids but I look forward to reading these books to the children in my life.
