Bob's Burgers: Medium Rare (graphic novel) - Paul's REVIEW

*I received this book as an eARC from Dynamite via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Bob's Burger: Medium Rare

Recent Release Date: November 17, 2015

Synopsis: While Bob and Linda Belcher have their hands full running the family business, their kids Tina, Gene, and Louise have adventures that you won't believe! The producers, writers, and animators of the hit animated show Bob's Burgers proudly present all-original comic book stories, including hilarious installments of "Louise's Unsolved Mysteries & Curious Curiosities," "Tina's Erotic Friend Fiction," and "Gene's Rhymey Rhymes That Could One Day Be Songs." Whether it's Tina's daydreams of cloning back-up dancers or jungle misadventures, Louise's explorations of underground tunnels and time-stopping Wonder Wharf rides, Gene's lyrics that reimagine boring Aunt Gayle visits as epic journeys to fantasy worlds, the Belcher family hijinx are guaranteed to make you laugh! 


Review: These comics are great. I love the way they are a collection of smaller stories. There are stories from Tina's Erotic Friend Fiction, Louise's Unsolved Mysteries and Curious Curiosities, and Gene's Rhymey Rhymes that could one day be songs. 

Tina's stories involve a cloning machine, a jungle version of herself, a spy story, and a Casablanca tribute. There are a lot of references to butts. And Tina being herself. I love how confident she is in her own unique way.

Louise's are probably my favorite. A hole in their basement leads to the unknown. There's a carnival ride that stops time. The Bizarre Bizaar has magic pineapples.

Gene's tales involve him becoming a crooner during the full moon. The kids find Narnia in their aunt's closet. There's also a great Cinderella retelling.

All the stories capture the spirit of the tv show perfectly. I also really enjoyed the many variant covers and alternate art styles. It's always cool to see animated characters drawn in different ways. I give this graphic novel a 3.5/5. If you like the show, you'll like this comic.
