Safely Endangered
Safely Endangered - Chris McCoy

Safely Endangered was a lot of fun! I wasn't really familiar with the webcomic, but after reading the book I'm sure I've seen some before. The comics were light and observant, and there was just the right mix to keep it fresh all through the book. Nice to see the references to many books/movies/games.

Enjoyed it a lot.

Oh No
Oh No - Alex Norris

Oh no, this didn't work for me.

I don't follow the webcomic, but have come across a couple of them on the internet. However, I think, for me, this comic is best appreciated in small doses. There being so much repetition and them all having the same end, made that it got old very quickly for me. The style was also not really for me. But I guess it will be a nice collection if you're a big fan of the comic.

Mooncop
Mooncop - Tom Gauld

I picked up Mooncop because I'd previously read Baking with Kafka, a collection of comics mainly about books. Mooncop is very different but also not. It is one long story about a police officer who is running out of work (but keeps a 100% solving rate of all non-existing crime) on a dwindling moon colony. It's the futility of his work really.

It's sad but in a beautiful way, and I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. The drawings are simple and much like the short comics, and they tell the story in the right way.

Cute book.

Haphaven
Haphaven - Norma Harper,Louie Joyce

Haphaven was a nice story about a very superstitious girl who travels to Haphaven, a world filled with leprechauns harvesting salt and clovers, who tries to find out where all her bad luck is coming from.

It took some time for me to get into the story, even as Alex traveled to Haphaven, but at a certain time its charm won me over and I especially enjoyed the last part of it. There was more to the story than I at first anticipated, which was nice. The art was nice too, but not something very special or memorable.

All in all, a very nice read.

Gang Of Fools
Gang of Fools - James Otis Smith

I really didn't like this.

And Dystopian settings are usually among my favorites but I just couldn't get myself to like Gang of Fools. I felt a fool reading it because it came across as very chaotic. There are so many story lines, all of which we are old just slightly to little to either completely get it or care about the character. I got the idea the author just wanted to throw as much as possible at the reader in hope of shocking them. I'm sure it was a clever story, but it really wasn't for me. Also the art didn't work for me, it felt rushed at some times and chaotic at others, filling the panels with a lot of text and characters.

It really wasn't for me.
