Sorenson, Jen – Slowpoke: Cafe Pompous
I remember thinking that Slowpoke was great a few years ago. With this book, she’s going in a slightly different direction. I’ve always been a bigger fan of comics stories than newspaper type strips (Steven being the only notable exception I can think of), but she makes this stuff work. Political at times, she deals with all kinds of ridiculous events and current happenings with pretty much the same attitude. Look, this is a cheap, good book, and it’s a Xeric Grant winner. Do you need any other reason to give it a try? Hey, here’s a website with all kinds of samples. Go!
