    I'll never understand the love for that stupid comic - or vinyl toys like this, for that matter.

    Meh, it's a vinyl toy, what more can you expect?

    I have this book at home but never had the time to actually read it. I probably should get to that soon.

    Me neither, but mostly because I'm sick of this children's-books-for-adults trend that has overtaken underground comics. Gee, and we wonder why comics aren't taken seriously? Good thing the've traded spandex for crayons!

    I love it. It's sold.

    ICB was a little ridiculous and hackneyed, but it had enough orginial gags to make it worthwhile.

    Oh wow another lame Transforming robot! That truly has to be the most poorly executed vinyl toy ever. I hope the story is top notch cause the artwork looks like an eight year old trying to draw bumblebee after seeing the movie for the first time. What's up with the tired overdone, scribble font? This hurts to look at......

    A little bit. But I do love "Owly," and "Peanut Butter and Jeremy" for that matter. But it seems like every hipster and his trucker hat is making an adorwable widdle book about cute characters that tepidly subvert pop culture. And, why, these books just HAPPEN to not require any real drawing chops! My stars, how perfect!

    Look, I'm as tired of generic Image-style "edgy" superhero books as the next comic geek, but my god, at least those guys can actually draw (some of them, anyway), even if they can't tell an origional story. If we really want comics to be viewed as a serious art form, we need a broader selection of work between "Deathstab von Shadowdwell: Deamon Spawn" and "Missy Mae and Her Puppy-Plumb Sunday."

    And for god's sake, stop trying to claim bad drawing as a stylistic choice. It insults those of us who actually TRY to draw better.
