It's a sad fact of modern life, but not all of us can be Ice Cube. No matter how many Raiders caps we may buy, it's just not going to happen. But, even though we may not achieve his perfect six-sidedness, we can all follow his example in one respect: We can all strive to have a good day.
That, my friends, is the lesson that we can all learn from Teen Dog #2, in which Jake Lawrence's cool, skateboarding dog is having some pretty good times indeed, along with his best friend Mariella, hunky new student Jordan, and the breakout character of the year, Thug Pug and his denim jacket.
Here's the thing about reviewing Teen Dog, the new comic from cartoonist Jake Lawrence: Doing so is almost completely unnecessary. Not only is it one of those beautiful high concept books where the entire premise is summed up in the title, but let's be honest here. If you are the kind of person who doesn't already want to buy a comic called "Teen Dog," then I doubt there's anything anyone could say that would make you change your mind. You already know, deep in your heart of hearts, whether Teen Dog is for you.
That said, if you are the kind of person who's going to pick up Teen Dog when it hits comic shop shelves this week, you are in for a treat, because it is every bit as radical as the title makes it sound.
I recently became acquainted with the excellent webcomics of Jake Lawrence, an Australian cartoonist whose Timecowboy blog showcases his talents for creative character design, pixel art and of course good old fashioned cartooning. His work ranges from funny autobio to fantasy-fused action adventure.
