Knight, Keith – Dances With Sheep


Dances With Sheep

There I was, at Quimby’s In Chicago, and I could have gotten both of the other Keith Knight books, but did I? How could I be so stupid? Granted, I had just spent something near $100 on comics, but still… I think this is his first collection and, while I think he got funnier after 9/11 when he started skewering news topics instead of just daily life, this is still some funny shit. That’s all you really have to say about a comedy book, right? Whether or not it’s funny? My only minor problem was that I don’t think the strips were run in order, or maybe Keith has a really confusing life. Doesn’t matter that much, it’s just that I feel compelled to be negative all the time about something. Topics in here are about all sorts of things, including roommates, Jerry Garcia, sheep, supermodels, cars, comic conventions, airplanes and old friends. And about a zillion other things too, but what do you want? The book’s 136 pages long, there’s bound to be all kinds of things talked about and you should really be reading that instead of thing anyway. Contact info is up there, spend money!
