In Barkman’s debut print collection, False Knees fans will find old favorites along with an abundance of all-new material. Featuring creatures found in the author’s native Ontario, this always sharp, sometimes head-scratchingly bizarre collection of comics offers a view into the secret, surprisingly insightful world of blue jays, squirrels, geese, wolves, and rabbits.
Delightful. He nails the animal expressions and poses, which adds to the humor of juxtaposed anthropomorphism. I feel like my natural history background added another level of appreciation to several of the comics. None were laugh out loud funny for me but I enjoyed the whole book.
