Yo! Burbalino issues 1-3


Yo! Burbalino issues 1-3
8 1/2 x 5 1/2, 24 pages each
$3 each (discount for the 3 pack?)
Three short books of comics, most of which feature the characters, Chef Don and Earl Squirrel, but there are lots of other characters as well. The stories are usually short and random, often only lasting one or two pages. The jokes are typically quirky and weird and often involve a play on words - some of them went way over my head (or maybe they are supposed to be nonsensical). A few of the drawings and stories are vulgar and crude. Some of the writing is rhyming poetry, which makes sense because apparently the writer/artist used to be a rapper. The best thing about these, in my opinion are the recipes by Chef Don told in comic form.
