Book Review: The Knight Life

Summary from GoodReads: With his edgy, fresh, and yes, strange worldview, Keith Knight has brought the "funny" back to the funny pages. Irreverent, topical, and always un-PC, his syndicated, award-winning comic strip The K-Chronicleshas delighted, shocked, and just plain freaked out readers across the country. In THE KNIGHT LIFE, his collection of comic strips loosely based on his life, he skewers just about every political figure and social issue we can think of (and even some we can't). From "Bush's Shadow(y)Government" and "Biff argues the positives of racism" ("If we didn't treat you folks so badly, you would've never invented the blues !!") to "If Signs Told the Truth" (Denny's: "Serving blacks since 1997"), Knight's musings on life keep readers laughing andthinking. Combining the razor-sharp edge of Aaron McGruder's The Boondocks with the irony of the Farside, this is comic satire at its finest-and most warped. (2009)

My Review: This graphics comic novel has it all: humor...sarcasm...uh-oh and more. An awesome book for when you need to laugh {come on, none of us do enough of that}. Wonderful cartoonist illustrations in both black and white.


Pages: 211

  1. I liked this book as well - I have it on my coffee table now and everyone that comes in grabs it up and starts reading it. I love to hear the chuckles!

  2. This sounds like a good relaxing read..sometimes you aren't always in the mood for an actual novel. I think this and your Conan reviews would fit in perfectly for those novel over-done times.
