A review by gillysingh
Guys, by Dave Sim, Gerhard


I read this in single issue format rather than as one of the phonebooks. This might have coloured my view of the book to take what I say with a pinch of salt.

Guys was enjoyable. The characterization of what it is like in your local pub and the myriad people who come and go is a spot on representation. At the same time, the petty distractions and discussions on life are very real. This volume brings back many precious characters, introduces some new ones and gives a solid breather from the cerebus saga after the exhausting experience of reading Mothers and Daughters.

You get the impression that Dave Sim might have been running out of steam but you feel grateful for that.

This volume could be read in isolation.
