Amazon.com: 3.0 out of 5 stars  3 reviews
4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of the online comic with a focus on the basics: coffee and bacon 8 May 2014
By W. McCoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
'Bacon is a Vegetable, Coffee is a Vitamin' is a collection of Diesel Sweeties cartoons about coffee, bacon, vegetables and hot dogs. Diesel Sweeties is an online comic by R. Stevens. The style is a sort of retro pixel looking comic strip. The characters feature humans and robots.

The jokes include vegetarians struggling with the urge to eat bacon, the dependence on coffee to do just about anything, and the relationships we have involving our various food manias. Cats and appliances are somewhat anthropomorphized. They don't do much besides make their normal noises, but seem to be part of conversations. Favorites include a cartoon with all the names for coffee, and a series featuring a battle between the toaster and coffee maker.

The series has been running since 2000. The bacon craze seems to have died down a bit, so some of these feel a little dated, but coffee is still a social drug of choice. It's a fun collection if you aren't expecting much.

I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Funny 4 Mar 2014
By YodaWay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was sold when I read the title. I was disappointed when I read the book. I just didn't find the majority of the jokes funny. I chuckled at a couple but not anything to keep me coming back to this comic series. I did like the old school pixelated look.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as real bacon 24 April 2014
By Jason Kirkfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Bacon and vegetables have always had an adversarial relationship (Mr. Bacon vs. Monsieur Tofu). Diesel Sweeties creator Richard Stevens III has attempted to leverage this natural friction into natural humor. It doesn't always work.

This collection of pixel comics from the Diesel Sweeties strip is the second such offering (I'm a Rocker, I Rock Out). Like any joke compilation, the funny risks getting stale. Given the gastronomic bent, it would be safe to say this book is probably good for six to eight servings. Any more in one sitting is a choking hazard. Nor does this lend itself to repeat tastings.

Some of the strips are funny, offering sardonic wit with aplomb, or at least with a frying pan.

==============
If meat is so wrong, why are vegetarians MADE of it?
==============
Guy: I made six-cheese, deep-fried lasagna.
Girl: Southern Fried Italy? Sounds deadly.
Guy: But it's vegetarian!
Girl: Vegetarian is only *part* of healthy.
==============
You know how food tastes better when it's made by someone who loves you?
Coffee's better from someone who hates you.
==============

Some of the strips are less funny. The kitchen appliance interactions (toaster, kettle, et al) are the least funny of all.

I like pixel art, but this is pretty much the same thing over and over again. The scatological content was also higher than expected, or necessary. Nice production from comic book publisher Oni Press, but they should have gone all the way with a scratch and sniff cover. Oh well. Probably best to pair this with bacon floss as a gift.

[The reviewer was provided with a complimentary copy of the book.]
