Robbie and Bobby Volume 2: Bottomless Coffee and Candy Cigarettes

So let’s say that you’re somebody who read the first volume of this series and enjoyed it, as you are a human with a sense of humor. If you were tragically born without a sense of humor, I meant no disrespect, but that’s about the only way that I can picture somebody reading this without enjoying it. Anyway, let’s say that that’s true, but still you’re wondering if you should pick up this second volume instead of, say, stopping at a Starbucks and getting coffee a few times this week. Skip the coffee, buy the comic. Simple enough? This is another collection of strips with subject matter that’s all over the place, and once again it’s funny as hell. That’s assuming that hell is a funny place, which is the assumption I always go with. There’s also a little girl who pops up very occasionally, so the cast is expanding ever so slightly. Not that the stories need it, but she is still a welcome addition. Subjects include (and I’m going to do this in the vaguest way possible to keep away spoilers) flying toasters, puppy cones, God’s grenade launcher, a glitter vaccine, book fights, Bobby getting lost in a supermarket, a pizza car, the ghost in the machine, sad games, fart stencils, hammock revenge, a benevolent tumor, a selfish monster and ghost dinosaurs. That’s a small sampling of the many strips in here, which once again includes a few strips from other artists, and they seem to have universally captured the magic of this strip. I’ve said it many times, but collections of strips like these often trend towards being mediocre, usually for the sheer number of strips involved, as some of them are bound to be stinkers. This has not been the case for either volume of this series, as damned near every strip either had me laughing, vaguely creeped out of both. Read this and laugh! $10 (ish)
