{Fathers Day Gift Ideas} ~ The Knight Life ~ Book Review & Giveaway ~ 2 Winners!

The Knight Life is a hilariously twisted view of life through the eyes and pen of its creator, community-oriented urban hipster and award-winning cartoonist Keith Knight. The Knight Life deftly blends political insight and neurotic humor in a uniquely fluid and dynamic style, offering a comic strip that’s fresh, sharp, topical and funny. Designed for daily newspapers, The Knight Life follows Knight’s long-running, 2007 Harvey Award-winning weekly comic strip “The K Chronicles,” which appears on salon.com.

An unabashedly provocative political and social satire, The Knight Life tackles contemporary issues like consumer culture, bacon, the media, race, family and everything else, gently mocking the minutiae of daily life with self-deprecating humor, honesty and goofiness-a combination that’s perfect for the comics. And The Knight Life’s energetic style reminds readers that comics can look funny as well as read funny. The result is accessible yet edgy, compassionate and political-and never preachy. Cartoonist and comic historian R.C. Harvey said, “The Knight Life is undeniably the best new laugh- and thought-provoker on the comics page. Not since Calvin and Hobbes has there been so novel an entertainment in the funnies.”

My Review:

I did not read this book myself yet, but my son and my husband both read it. It took my son two evenings, and my husband around 2 hours to finish the book. My husband said, rather than reading it from cover to cover he would have preferred to have read it slowly as casual reading on a lazy day. It did have some great illustrations, but there was quite a bit of the humor that we didn’t understand since we are Canadian and some of it was targeted at American politics. There is nothing that is overly racial or inappropriate and the book was good for some laughs throughout.

If you are looking for something a little different than the average comic, then

The Knight Life

might be for you! It may be a great Fathers Day or anytime gift for the comic lover in your life.Personally, I think my Dad would have loved this book. He collected comics, and had a huge stack of newspaper comics saved up – several years worth! I don’t think there ever was a comic that he didn’t like..
