Lunarbaboon by Christopher Grady
Published April 4th 2017
Genre: Graphic novel, Humor
Explore the daily struggles and humor of family life with Lunarbaboon. He’s just like any other dad–but vaguely hairier because he’s half man/half moon monkey.
Lunarbaboon shares life’s parenting moments from the perspective of a 30-something dad/husband/chaos survivor. Together with the savvy, laid back Mom, wild child Moishe, baby Matilda, and a former Julliard student (their cat), Lunarbaboon must navigate the family and social dynamics of everyday life. Ranging from the hilarious (defeating closet monsters with a “stun” blaster that offers surprising facts about bears, Mars, and cats) to the sweet (the gray scale-to color transition out of depression at the touch of a loved one), this collection explores the bonds within a family and all the characters who bring both order and chaos to life.
Lunarbaboon’s perfect meld of crabby humor and moments of impactful honesty give these comics a wide range and distinctive voice that’s both comical and sincere.
This book is about a father and the daily life of his family.
Even though I’m not a parent, this book was hilarious to me. It is a simple comic with simple drawings and short strips.
I really enjoyed it and I recommend it to everyone that enjoys this type of graphic novels.
