Rating: 5/5 – Touching and Funny Comics About Fatherhood.
by ComicSpectrum reviewer Stephen Bretall.
A guy makes comics about his kid, his wife, and the various situations and adventures having both gets him into. The comic is organized blog-style, so you’ll have to scroll down and hit the “last page” buttons at the bottom to navigate it. It can be read from first comic to last or last to first, whichever you like – there’s no ongoing story:
What’s Awesome About It?
This comic is pretty much the definition of ‘touching’. There is a good mix of jokes, insights into parenting, and general witty situations/observations to keep it interesting for a variety of readers. Even as someone who’s not a parent, I could empathize with the characters and see the humor in the situations the comic gives off. The art is just right for the tone the comic goes for, which adds a lot to the atmosphere. While not laugh out loud funny most of the time, Lunarbaboon, despite the somewhat out-there title has a sort of down to earth humor that is executed perfectly.
If the idea of a comic about fatherhood and the sometimes wacky, sometimes heartwarming situations it can produce seems at all appealing to you, I can highly recommend this comic. This comic does it does what it does very well, and is definitely worth a read.
