Cherry, Tom – Nibble #5


Nibble #5

I’d like to congratulate Tom Cherry on being the very first person this year (at the late date of December 22nd) to give me even the tiniest bit of holiday cheer.  Not that I’m always that big of a scrooge, but as for this year, “humbug” does about sum it up.  He’s done it with another of his tiny mini comics, Nibble, dealing with a couple of kids making a snowman.  Sounds innocent, right?  Well, said snowman wakes up, becomes self-aware, and… well, what would you do if you woke up to find out that you were made entirely out of snow, had sticks for arms, buttons for a mouth and eyes and a carrot for a nose?  It’s killing me not to give it away here, but let’s just say that I laughed out loud.  Tom sent along a few of his comics, and I’m looking forward to getting a chance to see what this guy is all about.  These shorties have looked adorable, like Tom could easily jump onto the Sunday funnies and nobody would bat an eye, but with just enough darkness to keep me interested.  Even if the rest of the books all suddenly take a drastic dip in quality, this particular issue is going to be sitting on my desk for a while.  I can’t think of a better holiday conversation starter than this…  $.25
