Do you love Bob’s Burgers? Do you love comics? You should read these. End of review.
But I really could end it there. These comics combine the fun lightheartedness of the TV show with the creative freedom of the comic medium.
The biggest draw of the TV show Bob’s Burgers for a lot of people is its colorful cast of characters; the strongest of these obviously being the Belchers themselves. Because of this the comics follow a simple format that has tons of potential. Each comic is divided into five parts that correspond to each member of the Belcher family: An erotic friend fiction written by Tina,
a list of burger-of-the-day ideas from Bob, a detective story starring Louise, a wine-soaked letter from Linda, and–in a great bit of theatrical flair–a musical finale with Gene.
Each segment also features its own unique art style, often with each one being written and drawn by different artists. They even threw in a bunch of alternate covers at the end of #5 (which is where I got Salvador Bobbi up there)(I don’t have to source that, because I came up with it)(Yes, I am available for parties).
The result is something that is every bit heartwarming and fun as the TV show while being different enough to be its own entity and worth the time for you to read. There are currently five issues out and they’ve promised more coming. I personally cannot wait! What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
