    I think I wanted this to besolid, based on what I d been hearing about David Yurkovich The parts of this book feel like snippets out of an unfinished story, rather than a coherent whole, and that s too bad Some of the fragments are remarkably weird and interesting, but the complete story is one that I can appreciate without entirely enjoying it The female FBI agent who is sort of a parody of the one from X Files the alien dog the super power involving chocolate the weird living weapo I think I wanted this to besolid, based on what I d been hearing about David Yurkovich The parts of this book feel like snippets out of an unfinished story, rather than a coherent whole, and that s too bad Some of the fragments are remarkably weird and interesting, but the complete story is one that I can appreciate without entirely enjoying it The female FBI agent who is sort of a parody of the one from X Files the alien dog the super power involving chocolate the weird living weapons with the powers and abilities of Matter Eater LadThere s cool stuff here Maybe it felt like the author wasn t taking the audience seriously

    Death by Chocolate Reduxis a bizarre collection of short stories See, one day this guy was visiting an unusual chocolate factory when he fell into the vat and emerged as a man composed entirely of chocolate And who can turn anything else into chocolate with a wave of his hands Now he works as FBI Agent Swete with his partner Anderson for the FBI s Food Crimes Division Seriously.It s an interesting read On the one hand, it s definitely an early work in the career of someone whoDeath by Chocolate Reduxis a bizarre collection of short stories See, one day this guy was visiting an unusual chocolate factory when he fell into the vat and emerged as a man composed entirely of chocolate And who can turn anything else into chocolate with a wave of his hands Now he works as FBI Agent Swete with his partner Anderson for the FBI s Food Crimes Division Seriously.It s an interesting read On the one hand, it s definitely an early work in the career of someone who might become very talented someday his art has an early, amateurish look to it but the visual storytelling is near faultless, and he eschews the experimental page layouts that most beginning artists unwisely attempt in favor of a usually nine panel grid approach At the same time, his writing could use some work one of the last stories in the collection starts in media res, then flashes back to the beginning of the tale, during which Swete Anderson travel back in time, and then hear ANOTHER story told in flashback that lasts a dozen pages This overly convoluted narrative structure is pretty much exactly what every book on writing tells you NOT to do And yet this very story involves not only time travel, but a talking dog from an alternate Earth full of talking dogs, who comes to our world and eventually sets off to find his favorite author Ernest Hemingway to teach him the dog how to write Other stories involve government funded all consuming zombie like beings called the Metabolators the ultimate clean up crew , and the secret of immortality cooked into a dish of spaghetti The Eternity Pasta With ideas as far out as those, I ll give a LOT of leeway to a writer artist who may still be perfecting his craft Death by Chocolate Redux may not be the most polished graphic novel you ll ever read, but it makes up for its shortcomings by being an entertainingly offbeat experience

    I almost gave up on this one without finishing it, but finished it anyway, for the sake of, as my mom would say finishing the last few potatoes on my plate It s not that there weren t interesting factors thrown in such as a plate of Eternity Pasta, a talking time traveling dog trying to convince Ernest Hemingway to give him writing advice the day before he kills himself and things called Metabolators which eat every person, place or thing in sight, on command by the government The premise I almost gave up on this one without finishing it, but finished it anyway, for the sake of, as my mom would say finishing the last few potatoes on my plate It s not that there weren t interesting factors thrown in such as a plate of Eternity Pasta, a talking time traveling dog trying to convince Ernest Hemingway to give him writing advice the day before he kills himself and things called Metabolators which eat every person, place or thing in sight, on command by the government The premise of these collected stories is fairly unique in its own right a chocolateer on vacation, visits a chocolate factory only to find out the factory s operated by the life essences of an incarcerated alien life form The man, who sees too much, runs from security, who corner him and give him no other option than to fall five stories into a vat of boiling chocolate to his supposed inevitable death While in the vat the man connects with the alien life form, merges physiological life forces, and emerges from the vat a chocolate fleshed super being, who can change anything into chocolate by the wave of his hands To sustain his sweet, supple structure, the hero must then avoid melting from any exposure to heat, including prolonged idling in the sun, lamps, etc., and eat sweets fudge bars, Yoo Hoos, to maintain his consistency, otherwise, he hardens and becomes vulnerable to any jarring cracks to his delicate, physical constitution As interesting as the premise might sound, the writing and stories were a bit disjointed and meaningless The illustration was fair, but mostly unremarkable The characters were flat And reading this book felt fairly inconsequential Though, I may see chocolate somewhat differently now for at least a day or two

    I was definitely disappointed in this one I d had only read Yurkovich s Less Than Heroes previous to this That book impressed me by being much deeper than expected, especially at the end This is just a dumb concept with an execution that doesn t pay off, save for a couple of threads The problem seems to be with the disjointed nature of the whole book since the different parts were created several years apart They don t read well when composed together I m guessing that nostalgia had a lo I was definitely disappointed in this one I d had only read Yurkovich s Less Than Heroes previous to this That book impressed me by being much deeper than expected, especially at the end This is just a dumb concept with an execution that doesn t pay off, save for a couple of threads The problem seems to be with the disjointed nature of the whole book since the different parts were created several years apart They don t read well when composed together I m guessing that nostalgia had a lot to with anyone wanting the story finished and compiled into one volume I haven t given up on Yurkovich yet, though, as long as the Broccoli Agenda has some of the brilliant tone displayed with Less Than Heroes

    Checked this out on hoopla during some period of boredom and after having enjoyed reading the Sholay comics on hoopla It s just about at the limit of what I can handle art and plot wise for comics too hard to tell characters apart, ridiculous premises, terrible yet self congratulatory writing In a comics store or library I probably would have picked it up and flipped through but then put it back somehow the commitment of downloading it to the ipad made me push through to the end.

    In the beginning, I thought this was a comic for children because I couldn t understand why this hero was lame He wasn t on a league, he was made of chocolate, and his powers could destroy political enemies As I read on, I realized it was a different take on comic and I really did like the artist s style I thought it was a good and easy read.


  7. Amanda Amanda says:

    The concept of this story was really good love all the fun chocolate references and strange superhero origin story but it just didn t seem thought through all the way I brought this back to the library without finishing it.

    Here s a nicely drawn but annoyingly goofy collection of modern only in art comic books stories The visual style does give the piece an edge and a certain unique atmosphere, but it carries only so far.

    Amazing It s great to see a guy s ideas come to fruition Strange characters sublime times a swete black and white read Amazing It s great to see a guy s ideas come to fruition Strange characters sublime times a swete black and white read

    I didn t actually finish reading this so maybe my rating is unfair, however, it turned out that the title is the best part of the book It was amusing, but not as funny as I thought it would be.
