Review: Bob’s Burgers Vol. 2 #1

BobsV2-01-Cov-A-ForteWhen I went to New York Comic Con this past October, the one show that almost everyone wanted to cosplay as was Bob’s Burgers. It was also one of the few shows that had a huge line for their panel on the first day. Also, my daughters happened to be fans of the show, so when I told them that Dynamite was rolling out a second volume of the comic series, they were ecstatic.

The series had a fine first run, so one would only hope the second volume, would maintain the consistency. Just like the first run, each issue is divided into several mini stories, which makes each issue stand on its own, and gives the reader, more freedom than most comics. It does not ask one to follow story arc with a promise of satisfying ending. Instead you get that within a few pages.

In the first story, Tina’s Erotic Friend Fiction Presents: Take A Chance on me(s), Brian Hall imagines his own version of Multiplicity to hilarious results. In Bob’s Fantasy Food Truck Concept Art: Double Black Dining, Mike Olsen imagines Bob’s wildest fantasy of a food truck. In Louise’s Unsolved Mysteries and Curious Curiosities: What Lies Beneath Bob’s Burgers, Louise and the rest of the kids, find a few surprises lurking under her parents’ restaurant. In Linda’s Attempt to Take Nice Family Picture In Front of the Restaurant ( And How It always Goes Wrong) #273, is as funny as it sounds. In the final story, Gene’s Nursery Rhymes That Could Be One Day Be Songs Presents: Full Moon, Gene fantasizes how his life a singer would turn out.

The writing and the art is consistently good, and create in the essence of the show. Overall, a definite buy.

Review: Bob’s Burgers Vol. 1

BobsBurgersTP-Cov-60lbJust because I’m a fan of an animated T.V. show doesn’t always mean I’ll want to read the comic but with Bob’s Burgers Volume 1 (Dynamite) by the writers and artists/ animators of the show, overseen by its creator Loren Bouchard, I’m now a fan of both the television and comic book versions. For me the show always ends too soon but this collected edition of the first five issues gave me plenty to chew, along with palate-cleansing interludes of pin-up art in various styles by different artists. Want to see a portrait of Bob in the style of Van Gogh? It’s here. The whole family in stained glass? Yes, like in a church. It’s here, too.

With this edition you get several installments of Tina’s Erotic Friend Fiction in genres from sci-fi to Western, to zombies. Is “zombies” a genre? I hesitate to say horror because it’s too funny. Tina’s butt-obsession is in full play throughout her stories so as you can imagine, Jimmy Pesto, Jr. figures quite prominently. Gene’s musical theatre endeavors play out in rhyme, with farts aplenty. Louise’s sections feature her wreaking havoc at school and at home, and solving mysteries in her hard-charging, get-outta-my-way style. I especially like the outcome of her sleuthing in the library book vandalism case! In one instance she doesn’t quite solve the mystery involving a member of a boy band group but I’m very intrigued and hope this will be addressed in the future (where are you, Boo?).

Layout 1We don’t see a whole lot of Bob and Linda in this volume, but what we do see is quite interesting. I love Linda’s way of talking (her syntax and diction) so I enjoyed being treated to her letters to (mostly) corporate recipients with ideas for inventions, new perfumes and tips on wine-drinking for busy moms. From Bob there are burger-of-the-day idea lists, fresh from the kitchen on ruled, grease-stained paper. The cleverly-named daily burger special is a running motif on the show that gets a more satisfying treatment here, some even with illustrations. Coming up with these is Bob’s thing–he’s really good at it and when I read them they make me hungry.

I love the very distinctive voices on the television version and that’s the only thing missing from the comic book, but since I’ve watched the show since the get-go, the voices are recorded in my mind and play as I’m reading. If you haven’t really watched the show and you’re new to this fabulously quirky universe located in a sea-side town populated with characters from the cranky and eccentric to the delusional yet hilarious, well, the most fun is in watching Bob, Linda and the kids interact with them.

I’m a fan of the drawing and the way the characters look, both on the show and in the comic. Even some of the more initially outlandish-looking side characters tend to remind me of folks I’ve known or seen. As for my favorite supporting character, in the future I’d like to see more of Tina’s and Jimmy Jr.’s classmate, Zeke, who, like Nelson in The Simpsons has gone from being a quasi-bully and sidekick for Jimmy, Jr. to a more full-fledged character on the show. With his modified mullet hairstyle and Southern accent, he has a surprising knack for cooking and a fondness for older women. In the future I’ll be on the look-out for more of Zeke and definitely more about Louise’s search for her boy-band member crush—yes, Louise has a crush!
