In case you didn't know, this is the fourth of M.C.A. Hogarth's coloring books. The first, The Jokka Coloring Book, features the three-gendered Jokka, aliens from a series Hogarth also wrote. The second, Not in Need of Rescue, contains women in fantasy settings. A third, The Laundry Dragons' Coloring Book Adventure, is geared more toward younger children, and is published under the name Maggie Hogarth.
This one is all about the Menz.
Hogarth started these coloring books, she says, because she wanted a way to share some of her thousands of sketches with a wider audience. The Jokka Coloring Book and Not in Need of Rescue contain mostly pictures Hogarth already had in her notebooks. However, THIS one is bristling with new work, as well. There are so many species in here, doing so many different things, it's an absolute delight. My favorite is the giant, patient, horned fellow watching over his wounded friend. But the orc dad on the cover is a close second.
As far as coloring books go, this one is a pleasure to play in. Hogarth's line work reminds me of the great Dover coloring books of yore, which I colored with my grandmother. It's just complex enough to keep you paying attention, but just roomy enough to allow for your imagination, too. The paper is much better than standard kids' coloring books, but it's not quite as thick as the paper in the Dover books. It takes colored pencil and alcohol-based markers beautifully, but I'd hesitate to use really soupy markers or paint in it, for fear of warping the pages.
My son and I will be thumb-wrestling over who gets which pages very shortly.
