Format: Paperback
I discovered the Housepets! comics only recently but regardless of my brief introduction I fell in love with them instantly.

Housepets! mainly follows Peanut Butter (Dog) and Grape Jelly (Cat), a pair anthropormorphic domesticated pets, as they live out their lives in the world of humans surrounded by a plethora of colourful supporting characters. Anyone with an affinity for animals will find plenty to love here and will no doubt see similarities with their own pets (or maybe not!) The characters are endlessly amusing, the story arcs are interesting and well paced and the overall presentation is just briming with a delightful charm that will stay with you until long after the end.

The book itself is beautifully presented and the images are clear and sharp. The printed page certainly does Housepets! more justice than the digital screen and it's easier on the eyes as well!

Are you curious to know what would happen if your pets walked on two legs and could talk? Perhaps you would like to hear the tales of Spot (Superdog) as he battles his nefarious, dress wearing foes? Or maybe you simply wish to know if Grape ever does get to finish that nap for once? Whatever your reason, you need to buy Housepets!

Housepets! is arguably the most entertaining and influential webcomic of the modern era.

Reciting the adventures of a community of talking pets Rick Griffin effectively mixes progressive storyline with random one-offs. Constantly surprising and charming the reader.

It is also the one thing online that has protected itself against trolls. When I joined it's official forum I was surprised by a number of things, the lack of swearing, the heartiness and grammar of each post, the effective and well thought out criticism's for fan art or fictions when most others would write something short and inflammatory. People follow their dreams when they stop being an avid reader and become part of the community.

It begs only one question. Why hasn't it been made into a cartoon?

A great read! Witty, adorable and entertaining. I especially love the way the artist has thought about how the world would work with pets who have near-human intelligence. Its very well thought out and comes out really cute. I can't wait for book 2!

A left-field surprise! 22 Aug. 2012
By Ye Olde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I knew nothing of Rick Griffin, or Housepets, or anything relayed to the artist or genre, really. And even today, I still don't know how I was led to it on Amazon. But I was, and it looked funny, so I bought it. I am really, really glad I did.

Griffin manages to do several things that make a strip successful. He keeps each strip fully self-contained, and at the same time keeps the arc of the story going. The characters are instantly endearing, and you very quickly care about them and the world they live in. And that is the delicate balancing act that Griffin achieves; he manages to neatly sidestep the many problems that quickly sink amateur comics. He avoids the "fanboy" approach, where the creator insists on beating the audience over the head with the nuances of their created world; he simply plays the story out, and lets the details emerge in their own time, unforced.

And his art is fun to look at. Right from the get-go, his clean lines and well-drawn perspective and anatomy tell you that he knows what he's doing, but it's really in the details; facial expressions, small environmental details, and gestures---all things crucial to a well-drawn strip---are a blast to look at, and constantly entertain.

Of course, none of this would mean anything if the strip weren't funny. And funny it is, very often on the laugh-out-loud side. The characters with their nuances and relationships are all grin-inducing, and I found myself laughing aloud at least twice a page. Occasionally, the strip is touching or even dramatic, but it is the humor that keeps the strip rolling, and keeps the viewer wanting more.

I think it says a lot about a comic artist when they put as much into their creation as Rick Griffin does, and if more artists did, then the world would be a brighter place.

Excellent Comic by a Great Artist 1 Feb. 2013
By Nicholas Jarak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This comic is available online for free on the website that the author made specially for this comic, but I loved it so much that I had to buy a physical copy of part of it. I was on the fence on the matter of buying this since it's available on the website, but I finally convinced myself by also considering the fact that I could use it as a chance to evaluate the quality of the publisher that Rick Griffin used, Create Space. I'm glad I bought it. It is fun to have a physical copy of part of the comic I like to read on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Now, I can easily show it around to friends and family when I talk about it.

On the matter of the content of the comic itself, it is excellent. It is one of the funniest comics I've read. When reading this comic on the website, it had me laughing and smiling at it's jokes around every five minutes. Not only is it funny, but when it gets serious it can be quite compelling and very interesting. I really ended up feeling for some of the characters at certain moments, and there have been many moments when I couldn't wait to see what happens next. It is obvious that Rick Griffin's main objective is to make the comic humorous, and he's definitely succeeded.

One of my favourite aspects of this comic is the artwork. Rick Griffin is an excellent artist. His ability to make his character's emote with some of the smallest changes is a testament to that, and he definitely knows how to use the medium of a comic to portray his scenes. Sometimes he'll go from one frame to another and change nothing but a single character's expression, and that one adjustment changes the entire meaning of the scene. I have great respect for Rick Griffin as an artist and his understanding of how to depict characters and their emotions. On top of all that, the characters themselves are a joy to look at also. They are all well designed and fun to examine while reading the comic. Rick Griffin has a very nice art style that evolves throughout the comic, and it has been consistently good. Often, after reading one of the comic strips, I like to look at and examine his characters out of appreciation of his artwork and character design.

I'd highly recommend this comic to anyone. The story is entertaining and quite interesting. The characters are hilarious. The artwork is great. What else could you want.

Enjoyable read for everyone 16 July 2011
By Steven M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great way to get your friends and family into Housepets:
1. Purchase this book.
2. Leave on coffee table or commons area.

It's about half black and white and half color, just as the web-comic switches over, so does the book.

If your a fan of the comic, pick it up and support Rick, if you're new to Housepets check out the web-comic first to see if you like it: [...]

Quality you come to expect from Rick Griffin 10 Mar. 2012
By SCotter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First I'll start off by saying that the print job is fantastic. The pages feel sturdy and the ink contrasts perfectly with the paper for easy reading. While I still would have preferred a hardcover copy, its nice have a physical copy of the webcomic I follow religiously.

OMQ? He made it into a book?! 17 July 2011
By Simon The Gallade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been into this webcomic for more than a year and it is full of laughs and crazy-ness and awkward situations. The characters are loveable (except Bino), well-written, and you know what? I could give you a million reasons to read this, but I don't have the time so I will say this instead: READ IT! READ IT NOW! Read it, then show it to your friends! Show it to your parents! Show it to your weird uncle you don't want in your house after 9pm! And now, since I don't now how to end this review, here's a cool gun:
