    I found Sluggy on accident. I left Sluggy because it became too much to read on the internet. I loved Sluggy in between. I miss Sluggy. :) If you get a chance to go back and read the first adventures you will find a wonderful funny blend of sci-fi geekdom. If you can't get into the plot - there's always a homicidal bunny ;) I found Sluggy on accident. I left Sluggy because it became too much to read on the internet. I loved Sluggy in between.

    I've been reading these online - didn't realize they'd been published as books! Not that I need to add more books to my to-read list for the year... but... anyway...going back and adding to the list for April since I started these last month :) I've been reading these online - didn't realize they'd been published as books!

    Some comics are born great, and some achieve greatness. Early Sluggy Freelance is undoubtably the weakest, with the roughest art and more emphasis on random gag-a-day humor than serious plotlines; but from these humble beginnings, greatness will eventually emerge. It is indeed nifty; and in time, it will become truly awesome. Pluses of book format: no Internet connection required, exclusive bonus story Minuses of book format: no chapter/sub-chapter headings (useful for referring to specific stories) Some comics are born great, and some achieve greatness.

    Sluggy Freelance is a behemoth of a comic and one of the best of all time. However... it didn't exactly start strong. Sure, it took the start and made it into something amazing, but this book by itself is pretty stilted. Luckily it picks up quick and stays good for years and years and years after this!

    Very uneven - the best bits are OK, the worst bits are terrible. Very little sign of the bright future ahead, but then back in 1997 it must have been difficult to imagine anything meaningful about the future of webcomics. Anyway, I don't have a review for this book itself, but I reviewed the first three books together over here on my blog. Very uneven - the best bits are OK, the worst bits are terrible.

    There is a lot of promise of what the series will become, and the silliness is already there, though the story telling is a bit awkward as he finds a direction to go, but some of it is already very good and very funny, with entertaining, engaging characters. The art gets a lot better, and the storytelling is very good when it's good, and otherwise is a little jerky.

    This is the first collection of strips from the webcomic Sluggy Freelance . The art is somewhat crude. The storylines are simplistic. Some of the gags are dated. But I continue to laugh out loud.
