Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Nothing says manly more than a yellow Jeep covered in mud. At least that's what art school student Kent thinks. Fresh from a messy breakup, Kent goes home to regroup. When he sees his friend Greg's brand-spanking-new Jeep, Kent seizes on the perfect way to reassert his masculinity—take that baby off road. Kent and Greg pick up their friend Brad, a burly guy who says what he thinks, often with his fists, and the testosterone level of the three combined is enough to convince them that driving a new Jeep through a swamp is a good idea—what could go wrong? When the Jeep inevitably gets stuck in the middle of the marsh, the three friends are forced to work out their problems. They face Brad's cheating father, Kent's snobby high school crush and her new beau, a pack of rednecks shooting fireworks at one another—and that's just the start. Kent's pigheadedness is both endearing and hilarious. Despite the big issues Kent and crew are wrestling with on their adventure, Murphy packs in enough tough guy humor to steer clear of any mushy stuff. With its angular, character-driven art, Murphy's Off Road is a delight. (Dec.)

WOW!! A laugh a minute! It was the best comic I have read in a LONG time...great story, great artwork, and VERY funny. It is an astonishing adventure and I really connected with the Greg character. The extra comic strip in the back of the book is a funny bonus. I would recommend this book to anybody that had a sense of humor.

I wish there were a dozen more Sean Murphys in the world just so I could see his stories and style on so much more work. A personal story with great depth and artwork that brings to mind a mature Calvin and Hobbes approach to minimalist approach when needed, while having the undeniable chops to blow a reader away when he flexes his composition and style. I'm a lifetime fan and every book I've pickup up from him has remained on my shelf ever since. You'll want to lend it to other people, but they won't want to give it back. You might just want to buy them their own copy.

I'm rapidly becoming a fan of Mr. Murphy's art work and this graphic novel is entertaining. The art is at time goofy and at times dramatic but always beautiful, and the characters feel like people you'd meet on the street. Especially in the environments you can see the impact that Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes) has had on the illustrator. All in all an enjoyable book.

Beautiful artwork that I think most people would enjoy, characters are pretty funny and relatable. This is definitely a story inspired by real life, it perfectly captures that young adult confusion, that feeling of being stuck (as symbolized by the Jeep getting stuck in the mud) we all experience. The characters overcome the bad things they've been dealt in life and put past experiences behind them. This is one of those stories that you are lucky enough to happen upon, and when you come out the other side, you feel like a stronger person. This is a self contained story, well structured without anything unnecessary. It felt like just the right length to me, I couldn't put it down and burned through it in one night. I'm going to have to check out Sean Murphy's other stuff now, like Punk Rock Jesus. To me, this book is well worth the money, and I'm going to want to hold onto it for a long time. 5/5, 100 %, 2 thumbs up, a thousand coconuts, whatever, it was awesome.
