Griffin manages to do several things that make a strip successful. He keeps each strip fully self-contained, and at the same time keeps the arc of the story going. The characters are instantly endearing, and you very quickly care about them and the world they live in. And that is the delicate balancing act that Griffin achieves; he manages to neatly sidestep the many problems that quickly sink amateur comics. He avoids the "fanboy" approach, where the creator insists on beating the audience over the head with the nuances of their created world; he simply plays the story out, and lets the details emerge in their own time, unforced.
And his art is fun to look at. Right from the get-go, his clean lines and well-drawn perspective and anatomy tell you that he knows what he's doing, but it's really in the details; facial expressions, small environmental details, and gestures---all things crucial to a well-drawn strip---are a blast to look at, and constantly entertain.
Of course, none of this would mean anything if the strip weren't funny. And funny it is, very often on the laugh-out-loud side. The characters with their nuances and relationships are all grin-inducing, and I found myself laughing aloud at least twice a page. Occasionally, the strip is touching or even dramatic, but it is the humor that keeps the strip rolling, and keeps the viewer wanting more.
I think it says a lot about a comic artist when they put as much into their creation as Rick Griffin does, and if more artists did, then the world would be a brighter place.
On the matter of the content of the comic itself, it is excellent. It is one of the funniest comics I've read. When reading this comic on the website, it had me laughing and smiling at it's jokes around every five minutes. Not only is it funny, but when it gets serious it can be quite compelling and very interesting. I really ended up feeling for some of the characters at certain moments, and there have been many moments when I couldn't wait to see what happens next. It is obvious that Rick Griffin's main objective is to make the comic humorous, and he's definitely succeeded.
One of my favourite aspects of this comic is the artwork. Rick Griffin is an excellent artist. His ability to make his character's emote with some of the smallest changes is a testament to that, and he definitely knows how to use the medium of a comic to portray his scenes. Sometimes he'll go from one frame to another and change nothing but a single character's expression, and that one adjustment changes the entire meaning of the scene. I have great respect for Rick Griffin as an artist and his understanding of how to depict characters and their emotions. On top of all that, the characters themselves are a joy to look at also. They are all well designed and fun to examine while reading the comic. Rick Griffin has a very nice art style that evolves throughout the comic, and it has been consistently good. Often, after reading one of the comic strips, I like to look at and examine his characters out of appreciation of his artwork and character design.
I'd highly recommend this comic to anyone. The story is entertaining and quite interesting. The characters are hilarious. The artwork is great. What else could you want.
1. Purchase this book.
2. Leave on coffee table or commons area.
It's about half black and white and half color, just as the web-comic switches over, so does the book.
If your a fan of the comic, pick it up and support Rick, if you're new to Housepets check out the web-comic first to see if you like it: [...]
