that being said, i also checked out his other book, Joey Fly Private Eye, written by Aaron Reynolds.
i think everyone has an early time in their youth when something amazing and influential passed through their young hands, and you can almost barely remember it. maybe it was an obscure cartoon, or a particular children's book, or a very specific graphic novel (like Tintin or this peculiar "King Smurf" comic i once had). Joey Fly is a 96 page graphic novel that pretty much puts me at that age again, discovering something strange and awesome at just the perfect time. i am surprised at how laugh out loud funny it is, and there is tons to look at here, especially the backgrounds, that crack me up.
could be a great gift for the youngins this holiday season, but i dread to admit that i frankly have copies for myself now. consider me a fan
