  1. This is a great comic. It took me a while to get past the fact that this was epic quest fantasy and not just slapstick humor. But my goodness, you’ve got so much good stuff waiting for you 🙂

  2. This was the comic that really got me into comics and graphic novels. The entire series is my lol-time favorite. The blend of high fantasy storytelling and classic cartoon comedy is top-notch. At a Comic-Con panel I was fortunate enough to meet Jeff Smith (he signed my copy of this first issue!) and said Lord of the Rings and Walt Kelly’s Pogo were massive influences. I hope you check out the rest because, though I hold this issue very near and dear to my heart, it keeps getting better from here. (And I’m pumped for the Netflix series we’re finally getting!)

    1. Ohhhh I love your love for this series! I know that the premise of this series and the artwork has me interested enough to want to continue till the end no matter what and hopefully it only gets better now that all the introduction is done in this first volume. And yes! I do hope the Netflix series will do it justice. I can soooo see it get a nice cartoon adaptation for everyone to enjoy. 😀 Thanks for reading!

  3. I’ve seen this character before but never knew anything about the series, and I certainly had no idea it was an epic fantasy. Sounds like a great story for the right reader.

  4. Hm, interesting – it certainly sounds different and I’ve always had a vague awareness of this series (more so when the Netflix series was announced). It seems all the disparate elements of character, plot and world building are laid down in this first volume and maybe it will get better in subsequent instalments – maybe the humour will become more consistent as the writing develops. Great review sir!

    1. I only learned of the Netflix series after reading this one hahaha I can totally see it work though but yes, the first volume definitely established the tone. I look forward to seeing how the next arcs will build on it. Thanks for reading, Chris! Hope you’re doing well.
