Lia, Simone – Fluffy #1


Fluffy #1

It took me about 10 pages to really love this book, but once I got over that hump, I was hooked. See, it’s about a bunny who thinks it’s a little boy, and it can be alarmingly cute at times. Once you get into it though you also get to see a complex man who’s not at all nice to his female partners, or maybe it’s just the one partner. In any case, I was enthralled by the end. It’s the first part of a four part series, so there’s a lot more yet to go, which is fine by me. The art, while being deceptively simple, conveys a whole lot of feeling. I’m guessing this is $5 (I’ll know for sure in a couple of days), and Simone was kind enough to send me a few copies for the site. This is something that’s really worth checking out, in case you were wondering. Here’s a website, wander around and see for yourself what you think.

Lia, Simone – Second (with Tom Gauld)



A terrible comic from London, OH on Monday is followed by a sweet and funny one from London England today. I’m not sure who does what here. I’m guessing that Tom writes and Simone draws just because that’s usually the order of the names, but it doesn’t really matter. They’re both essential to the success of this book. That might not make all that much sense when you consider that the art is very simple and uncomplicated, but it just works perfectly. Let’s see here, there’s a sweetcorn kernal, some wrestlers, a rabbit, a monkey nut, bread, bhagi, relationships… Lots of food stuff I guess, but this has it all. I defy anyone reading this not to be cheered up when it’s over with. $5, go to the website to order it. OK, if you don’t like this sample you don’t have to order it, but good luck not liking it.
