Another day another dollar.
Actually no wait, we don’t pay ourselves jack shit for this blog. Because “passion project” or whatever. Say, you guys, could you give us some money? Rest assured, it will be used to buy comics. Sweet, sweet comics.
Again, James is off for this week, and so
we I present to you the second part of our “single person deadline” Best of the Week post!
Fact: any week that features a comic with art by Gabriel Harman is a good week. One that features him drawing a cute story about a lost dog named Kinski is even better.
The story is what you think it is. During his travels, a man stumbles across a lost dog and falls in love with it. He gives it a name, and then things happen. Admittedly, this story is less Homeward Bound and more… I don’t know, The Office in tone? Both are terrible, terrible comparisons but for whatever reason, they’re the best I can grind out of my brain at the moment. This is not a light comic. When the bad thing happens, what follows is not exactly easy to watch. Yes, it’s a movie about a man and his love for a cute animal, but it’s not exactly a happy story, nor is it an easy one. It’s a story filled with awkwardness (hence the earlier comparison to The Office), about the choices a human might make, even in the face of what might be right… even if there is a right in this case. All in all, it’s a book that should be on your radar. At the moment you can’t purchase physical copies of this book, but you can head over to ComiXology where the first issue is available through Monkeybrain for a scant 99 cents. Read it and let us know what you think!
