Hairbutt reviewed

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).''
