Format: Paperback
I first encountered Joseph Lambert's work in The Best American Comics 2008, which reprinted his wonderful wordless minicomic "Turtle Keep it Steady." That story also appears in I Will Bite You, along with seven other tales by Lambert, who shows himself to be one of comics' great new stylists.

Most of Lambert's work has appeared in minicomics or other short-run publications, so this book from Secret Acres is a welcome publication. Most of the stories in this volume have been previously published, but few would have been seen by a broad audience. Put together, they form an impressive graphic novel that showcases a talent who I believe will make his mark on the comics scene in the years to come.

Lambert is, in many ways, a surrealist. He excels at characters and situations that flow and shift and defy expectations. His artwork is both sketchy and precise at the same time. He also knows enough about the conventions of the comics genre to play with form and structure in a way that few older artists even try to attempt.

The book opens with the titular tale, "I Will Bite You." The oldest story in the book (dating back to 2006), it features a monstrous, angry young boy who fumes at the happiness around him and acts out by taking big bites out of almost everything and everyone he sees. Ultimately, he goes too far and chomps on the moon. It's a dark tale, which is typical for Lambert, but it's drawn with great joy.

The second tale, "After School Snacks," has been redrawn for this book from its original publication. It's a bit different for Lambert, in that it actually has words. But Lambert does more than just add dialogue--the words themselves are an integral part of the artwork and story as two hungry monsters eat a little girl and then try to eat her friend.
