Some of these short comics were poignant, others were random and kinda nonsensical, but it was a quick and enjoyable read! :)

The graphic novel cartoons/stories are all very different. Some leave you remembering them for a long while but most are a bit of a stretch how they are even connected or to the topic.

It's difficult to classify this work since they appear to be so eclectic in both the way they are drawn and the way they are written and structured. Some are stories spanning several pages, while others are single-page monologues. I almost felt like it was very Monty Python's Flying Circus inspired with its often non-sequitur, disjointed way the stories are thrown together. With that said, I enjoyed it as a quick diversion and would definitely read more works by this author based on this volume.

The art in this collection is gorgeous, whether colour or black and white. Some of the stories are better than others, some I felt a little bit like I was missing something to properly understand what was going on but they are well worth the read. Part sci-fi, part fantasy, part whimsy, the art along is worth the price of admission.
