Bow to the WOW!

if you're in the mood for a romantic comedy that's heavier on the comedy than the romance, check out a hilarious comic called The Dog Years! when Trey, a twenty something toy designer, suffers a catastrophic break-up from his slightly overbearing (and more than slightly hot) fiance, his boys swoop in, determined to stop the pity-party before it even starts. once he hooks up with his boy, the crazy-as-hell dread Rasheed, you know something's about to jump off!
Writer/Artist Drayonis has created a prototype for a great cable show with a cast of characters any sitcom would be happy to have. The art is strong and he writes with a good balance of dating philosphy and comedy that's not afraid to be raunchy when appropriate. the main character's boys seem stereotypical at times, but each one finds his own voice. although the book spends a lotta time on the boys' attempts to drag Trey over to the dark side, the book offers ample coverage of the women's side of the battle of the sexes too! with all the comedy and sexual punch this book flaunts (Drayonis sure can draw some fine women... DAMN!), it also has some effective depth, which was a pleasant surprise. while we can expect to see the books printed eventually, Drayonis has 5 issues (with #6 on the way) of The Dog Years available to read free online... i suggest you do so, and feel free to let us know what you think!

I co-sign this. I read this in one sitting a few months ago and liked it alot. Dude leans on his Dawud/Brotherman influences really hard in the beginning, but starts to come into his own later in the series. Can't wait to see what he does with this.

i TOTALLY agree with that. it was fun tto see somebody take that style and apply it to a subject matter that reads like a date movie.
