grumbleI am always trying to find new and interesting comic books to read and sometimes it’s hard to find one outside of Marvel/DC/Image that retains my attention. Some time ago, when I was scouring through looking for titles to read, I came across one that simply read Grumble #1 from Albatross Funny Books and so I clicked on it and have been following the comic ever since. That is why I present to you guys Grumble Volume One: You’re The Dog, Man! which was written by Rafer Roberts (Modern Fantasy) and illustrated by Mike Norton (Battlepug) in this world of demons, magic, and more. Tala is part demon, part human and she has been on the run from the Inter-dimensional forces since her mom was caught. The only logical thing she could think of was to look up her mom’s low life ex-partner named Eddie to try and help her out. There is just one problem with all of this, he has turned himself into a dog and everyone wants in the world of humans and magic want to kill him too. Together, they’ll be on the run as they set off a wild chain of events that will keep you glued to the pages, but there is just one question. What are Tala’s true intentions in all of this?

grumble 2I honestly fell in love with this comic as soon as I began to read it. The story was well put together in my opinion as you go from the regular world one minute to a world full of magic and they even throw in intergalactic bounty hunters and more into the mix. What more could you want from the story? It has the main plot which is she needs help escaping these intergalactic bounty hunters in order to save her mom and it has a lot of subplots from what is the true relationship between herself and Eddie like is he her dad? As well as many other subplots that have certainly not disappointed me yet. The story has a perfect mix of action, adventure, sci-fi, and comedy all thrown in there that make it hard to compete against. I have also definitely enjoyed the artwork which has helped develop the universe that I’ve been talking about and what is better than a wise cracking walking, talking, dog that no one will help change back? Mike Norton does a terrific job with the comic’s artwork as he makes it easy to follow along with and his work is terrific. I ask you to at least give the first issue a shot because you never know, you may find yourself actually enjoying the comic.
