About the Book: Now you can read about the Belcher family (parents Bob and Linda, and their children Tina, Gene and Louise) with brand-new in-canon stories created by the TV show's producers, writers, and animators!
That's right, all-original stories that expand upon the fan-favorite animated series, including hilarious installments of "Louise's Unsolved Mysteries", "Tina's Erotic Friend Fiction", "A Gene Belcher Original Musical", "Letters Written by Linda", "Bob's Burgers of the Day", and much more! [Description from Netgalley.com]
My Review: I am a huge fan of the show, so of course I jumped at the chance to read a graphic novel based on it! Long time fans of Bob's Burgers will be able to read this graphic novel in each character's voice - and laugh their butts off! I snorted more than a few times while going through all the different sections devoted to each family member in every issue. I have to say, my favorite is probably Tina's Erotic Friend Fiction, just because it is so absolutely ridiculous.
My only note I have is that Gene gets to create a musical in every issue - awesome! - except... we can't hear it! Readers have no idea how the songs are supposed to go. Sure, it was mildly fun coming up with my own tunes, but Gene's musical genius is just that - genius - so I'd love to hear what he came up with. Other than that, this comic is totally aces in my book, and I cannot wait for more!
Cover Lovin': Great cover - really shows the ridiculousness that is the Belcher family!
Recommendation: For fans of the TV show, of course. The jokes and general story line would fly over a non-fan's head.
Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE STARS (4/5)! Hilarious, great fun. My one big downer was that I had no clue how Gene's musical numbers were supposed to sound. But loved it all!
