Riding high on the success of The Great Outdoor Fight, Achewood and Dark Horse Comics have compiled an extensively annotated collection of the first few years' worth of Achewood comics. This is no mere companion volume to the cult-classic online strip: the entire prehistory of Achewood is set forth for the first time, and all of the celebrated alt-texts are included. Additionally, author Chris Onstad has literally littered the book with observations and rudities. TIME magazine named back-to-back Ignatz Award-winner Achewood its 2007 Graphic Novel of the Year, and legions of devoted fans consistently report that it makes them feel the way Bloom County and Calvin and Hobbes did when they were young.

About the Author:

Chris Onstad is the creator of the webcomic Achewood. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

From Booklist:

Longtime fans will be thrilled that the second collection of the popular Web comic Achewood is exhaustively annotated. Onstad includes the alt-text comments he uses on the Web underneath each strip and provides extensive comments, beginning with a “History of Achewood.” Much like The Great Outdoor Fight (2008), this is not a sequential archive; the story arc is somewhat customized to stand on its own. Onstad’s art isn’t exactly rich in detail and flair, but Achewood’s strengths have always been the depth of the characters and Onstad’s deftness with dialogue and story lines. Devotees will enjoy the “history” sections as much as the strips themselves not only because all their questions will be answered but also because the characters have been so well realized on the Web that they gracefully make the jump to the book medium. Onstad’s goofy but expressive art, endearing characters, and trademark non sequitur–filled humor may at first be hard on the uninitiated, who may, however, conclude that this is essential stuff for Achewood fans, including themselves. --Carlos Orellana
