Who Let the Cat Out?: Mutts X

Overview

MUTTSis impossibly large. Its subject is the world, all living beings in it, and their relationship with each other. . . . Its touch is incredibly light and gentle, which explains how it alights in your mind and rests there. . . . The way that McDonnell's stories oscillate between gentle comedy and understated pathos is the strip's greatest strength.""-Christopher Brayshaw, Vancouver Review

The way that McDonnell's stories oscillate between gentle comedy and understated pathos is the strip's greatest strength.""-Christopher Brayshaw, Vancouver Review

Animal lovers everywhere adore Patrick McDonnell's charming but pointed MUTTS. The strip strikes a delicate balance between lighthearted fun and social commentary-on the human condition as well as the animal world.The deceptively simple comic follows the adventures of Earl the dog and Mooch the cat, an unlikely best-friend team, and Shtinky Puddin', Sourpuss, Guard Dog, and Crabby.Patrick's distinctive cartooning style effectively relays the all-too-real concerns of his characters with entertaining, clever, laugh-out-loud banter.

Infodad.com describes MUTTS as ""humane and funny and gentle and caring and heartfelt and-did we mention funny?"" The site goes on to say that the strip ""includes enough hijinks and outstanding art (yes, art!) to please anyone with a taste for animals and amusement.""

    I love Mutts!

    I have to have my fix of Mutts every day. When I first discovered this sweet comic strip, I was enthralled with the wonderful characters and the fact there are funny and ones and ones filled with sadness. They also have an important message which is much appreciated.

    The Mutts Antics of the characters involved are delightful.

    Because I thoroughly enjoyed "Mutts Comics," I want to peruse all of Patrick McDonnell's books. He has done an outstanding job, reminding me of pets I have had.
