Comments King City, Volume 1

  • Feña

    Cada detalle un lujo, creatividad e ingenio!


  • Erik Herz

    There is a marvelous, dirty, magical, extremely dangerous city in fiction and it lives in the mind of Brandon Graham. King City in not just a comic book, it is a conglomeration of genre, story, theme and art nicely bound up and selling at the low price of $19.99. In case you could not tell, I really enjoyed this book.At it's heart King City is a story about Joe, the Catmaster and his friends, Pete and Anna. Joe has recently returned to King City after journeys 'down south' and now needs to figur [...]

    Overall Rating: ASynopsis: King City, by Brandon Graham, follows Joe, a man with little going for him aside from his cat. Fortunately for Joe, his cat is a super cat. With an injection of cat juice, he can be anything from a weapon, to a tool, to a snuggly companion. Joe carries the cat everywhere in a bucket. He's a sweetie like that. I kept picking King City up in Chapel Hill Comics, but wasn't sure whether to buy it or not. It had an interesting concept, the art looked awesome, and it seemed [...]


  • Damon

    Best thing I've read in a while. I don't know that mentioning any aspect (or combination of aspects) of this book will capture what made the whole of it so good. The art was great, graffiti-inspired but not sloppy, and clear but with a ton of detail which rewards multiple reads. Story-wise, it's all over the board in a really great way: oddly-themed street gangs, drug-addicted zombie war veterans, martial arts master thieves, sasquatch spies, an amazing super-powered cat, weird demonic godfather [...]

    This was such a delightful surprise of a book. Brandon Graham has rapidly become one of my top 10 favorite writer/illustrators, and with King City it's not hard to see why. The book is quirky and the art extremely intricate. The story is so off-the-wall, but told so nonchalantly and so well that it is fully believable.If you aren't familiar with his work, pick this book up. It's a great introduction to his style and a gateway to some of his crazier work (Prophet).


  • Lori

    This is the beginning, so I'll need to read the rest! But i love the story, the cat is cool, need more cat.I also love all the whimsical things in the background like "Vandal Sassoon" familiar words and ads all twisted up in an example of the constant advertising visuals forced on us everywhere in daily life, but more in the King City universe. Good read, will need more.


  • Thomas Yount

    I loved this book.I feel its necessary to create a new word or invent a phrase to describe the elements of coolness involved with a secret agent who wields his cat (master) whom he keeps in his bucketHaving worked with Brandon on a comic I was making before just adds to it as well.Excited for the next volume to come out!


  • Melissa Dominic

    one of the best graphic novels to come in most recent times. interesting characters, amazing setting and an strangely engrossing plot weaved together with a unique stroke of artistic talent, you're doing yourself a diservice if you're not reading and enjoying this one.


  • Samara Steele

    A unique indy-comic-style sci-fi adventure where injections can turn cats into parachutes and zombie-war veterans get high off their own dead flesh. The strange spontaneity of the artist's style makes this comic a pleasure to read, and I look forward to the next edition!


  • Ryan

    Fun stuff - Seattle made "manga" set in some sort of humorous mercenary future where cats (and other animals) can be weaponized via pharmaceutical injections, zombie wars rage across Korea, a sasquatch cosmonauts operate spy motels under freeway overpasses.


  • Aharon

    Cat power! Crazily inventive.


  • Gaelen

    About a spy with a cat with super powers for a sidekick. I look forward to the second half.


  • Jordynb

    An excellent tale about a lovely (and terrible) futuristic city and the relationships intermingling within it! One of my all time favorites.


  • Sonja

    Two stars for magical cat weapon. everything else was terrible.


  • La Espada en la Tinta

    Reseña en: laespadaenlatinta/2012


  • Jon CarrollThomas

    This was good fun. I like the way he draws kitties and lips. I am disappointed that part 2 will only be published in French.Is that still true?


  • Michael William

    Way fun. Wonderfully devilish details. Brandon Graham is stealing my weird heart :)


  • Sebastien

    Remind me of scud for it's craziness ,you get hooked easily and want to no more about this universe and it's mysteries.


  • Josu Grilli

    Pese a que es corto y claro, el final no lo es, y quizá eso me ha dejado el sabor amargo.


  • Erik

    Story and art are fine but it's filled with bad puns.


  • Michael

    Weird, Original and Awesome. Just how i like 'em.


  • Noah Soudrette

    A highly imaginative, funny, and quirky comic about a bunch of drifters, some cannibals, and a cat that can do anything. The only reason this isn't five stars is that it has little to no real plot.


  • Monique

    Good story with good explanation. Interesting world building to. Some sexual themes


  • James Schneider

    King City is marvelously crammed with ideas, jokes, and sundry cleverness. This is wonderful, and v2 can't come quickly enough.
