Mush!: Sled Dogs with Issues

Front Cover
Macmillan, Dec 6, 2011 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 119 pages

Venus wants Buddy to quit asking her to "make puppies." Buddy wants Winston's help wooing Venus. Winston wants Guy's respect. Guy wants Dolly's job. Dolly wants to know the meaning of it all. Nobody knows what Fiddler really wants, not even Fiddler. But mostly . . . these sled dogs just want to run.

Sounds simple? It should be, but even dogs have their office politics. Office politics with sharp, sharp teeth.

From Colbert Report writer Glenn Eichler and dogchanneling artist Joe "Fur" Infurnari comes a postmodern tale of heroism on the tundra, epic romance, and yellow snow. (Hint: don't eat it.) Mush! is Arrested Development meets Call of the Wild—two great tastes that taste pretty funny together.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - LaneLiterati - LibraryThing

The first half of this is mostly just parodying the two modes of a sled dog: being on a run and wishing they were on a run. It's funny at first, but then it gets a little redundant. When another dog stages a coup to take over the lead dog position, things get a lot more interesting. Read full review
