Ha, if you’re ever up for a laugh, I will a million times suggest you go pick up one of Brian Gordon’s Fowl Language comics. In fact, I would suggest just taking some time out of your day to just visit his website. And then go and buy yourself copies of his books for good measure. This particular one, Winging It: The Art of Imperfect Parenting isn’t out until October, but let me just tell you that there are always some truly amazing pieces of comedy gold in anything Brian Gordon draws for the world.
The truth about his newest book for me is that I’ve seen a fair number of the panels that make it into this book before. You can’t really be an avid fan following his work and not have seen some of them. But fear not, there are a number of new comics that I’d not come across before, and ultimately you still find yourself giggling quite a bit for several minutes at various, often relatable, moments.
Winging It comes with comics separated into several sections, each with a short blurb from Gordon himself to describe what inspired the following comics. It was a nice added touch. The real gem of this book, though, is simply that your purchase allows you an amazing and hilarious collection of Fowl Language comics to set on your nightstand and read any time you need a little pick-me-up.
It’s great to have his website available to scroll through on your phone every once in a while, but there’s truly nothing better than having a collection of little hilarities to page through right before you’re drifting off to sleep. I will tell you that Gordon’s Fowl Language happens to remain one of the funniest webcomics I’ve ever had the pleasure to read. I had a lot of laughs while reading this one and I don’t imagine they will be the last that Gordon brings to me.
And a small bonus in the time of all of us dealing with COVID-19:
I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
