Jayden Legget has given the repackaged Comixology edition of Hairbutt The Hippo issue one a 4 star (out of 5) review! Here's an excerpt...
'' Despite the comedy and very cartoony art design, the subject matter
is quite often very adult in nature, containing swearing (which was
admittedly censored), murder and alcoholism etc, so make sure little
Timmy doesn’t get his hands on a copy of this book.
While on the subject of the art, once again Paulos shows that he is
far from being a one-trick pony when it comes to illustrating. The art
design features high contrast black and white cartoon style drawings
that hold a wealth of detail in both the character designs and
backgrounds. Despite being mainly comprised of deceptively
simple-looking bold outlines, Paulos still manages to perfectly
communicate a vast range of emotions via the facial expressions of his
various characters. I always got amused every time the cowardly Hairbutt
would nervously sweat under pressure.
Despite one grammatical error (these always bug me, which is
pathetic, I know) and the relatively short page length of just over
twenty pages (I want more, dammit!) Hairbutt The Hippo – Private Eye No. 1
was a “done in one” story that I got a heck of a lot of enjoyment out
of. When I next get the chance I will definitely be looking in on more
stories from the Hairbutt The Hippo series, and I strongly encourage all other comic book readers to do the same (go to the Asylum Press website to score a copy of this and other sweet titles).''
