5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own For Lovers Of Kevin Smiths Work, 6 Oct 2001
This review is from: Jay and Silent Bob: Colour Edition: Chasing Dogma (Jay & Silent Bob) (Paperback)
Chasing dogma begins with the twosome of Jay and Silent Bob laying low in downtown New Jersey, a few months after the film "Mallrats" took place, the book follows them on a merry journey through the antics of "Chasing Amy" (the third film in Smiths 'New Jersey Trilogy') through to the parking lot that sees them into the film "Dogma".
This book is excellently drawn, and the storyline (written by Kevin Smith) features all the aspects you'd expect from Jay and silent Bob; drugs, porn, refugee monkeys, the works.
This book isn't suitable for those that are easily offended by drugs, sex and bad language, but i would certainly recommend this book to those that are fans of Jay and silent Bob, especially if they've seen the films, although even without that background, it's still a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Kevin Smith freaks!, 5 April 2002
This review is from: Jay and Silent Bob: Colour Edition: Chasing Dogma (Jay & Silent Bob) (Paperback)
With this comic, you accompany Jay and Silent Bob on their journey from Mallrats to Dogma via the cafe scene in Chasing Amy. Reading the book, you find yourself smiling at finding out useless information, like where Jay and Silent Bob got their threads for Dogma, what the deal was with Susanne from the Mallrats credits, and how Jay and Silent Bob came to meet Beth outside the abortion clinic. At this point, note that if you have not seen any of Kevin Smiths' landmark releases. "Mallrats" "Chasing Amy" or "Dogma" then my review will leave you highly confused - watch the films before getting thic comic. If you don't, while you might enjoy it, you will not reap the full benefits of Smiths' skill. I also highly recommend the "Clerks" comic books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excrutiatingly funny and wordy - not your average comic, 19 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Chasing Dogma (Paperback)
For anyone who's a fan of Kevin Smith's films, this is a treat and a half. Plotting Jay and Silent Bob's (Smith's recurring characters) adventures, it links Mallrats, Clerks, Chasing Amy and Dogma almost seemlessly. And if you love Smith's crude one liners and comic situations, you'll adore what happens in this book.
The art is great too, capturing the feel and look of Smith's films, as well as excellent characters of the actors themselves. The concept itself may phase a few people, it's really one for the fans. Unless you've seen one or more of his films, you probably won't get much from this book.
The stories contained in the book are great though - Jay and Silent Bob manage to get involved with fights, John Hughes movies, porn starlets and fugative orangutangs. What sets this book apart, however, is the fact it is not just a film tie in. You feel that these stories were always part of the narrative that links all of Smith's films, and that is probably the case.
If you're a fan it's a must buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good toilet reading, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This brightened up about 4 sessions on the toilet so pretty good value, it was that or read the shampoo bottle I bought earlier. Seriously though Kevin Smith is a genius, not found anything I dont like. Buy it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Snootchi Bootchi Nootchies., 18 July 2003
This review is from: Jay & Silent Bob (Paperback)
If you have seen any of the Kevin Smith films then you all ready know of Jay and Silent Bob. Two stoner losers trapped by their own stupidity at the front of a quickie mart.
If you haven't seen a Kevin Smith film then go watch Clerks. It's a cult classic, it will also let you know if you will enjoy this graphic novel or not because you see there really isn't that much middle ground with these two. You either love or really really hate them.
Kevin Smith keeps the story zipping along at quite a pace and the art work is spot on. Adding to the humour rather than just explaining it.
Most of this book made it into the 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back' movie so it is a good refernce to the film if you have seen it.
This title is for anyone who enjoys stupid, dumb crude humour ,and lets face it thats the best kind. Now please excuse me while I go roll some Doobie Snacks BUNG!

4.0 out of 5 stars Between Chasing Amy and Dogma, 12 Feb 2001
This book collects Kevin Smith's 4-issued comic-book series "Jay & Silent Bob", which takes place in the meantime between his films "Chasing Amy" and "Dogma". If you liked the movies you'll like the book, and I you haven't watched them yet: 1) You won't understand the book at all & 2) you're missing a great time! After reading this book, its a great idea to also get the "Clerks: The Comic Books" one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comic collection;, 25 Jan 2002

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Jay and Silent Bob: Colour Edition: Chasing Dogma (Jay & Silent Bob) (Paperback)
Just a little out of continuity with the movies.
The book begins with JAY & SILENT BOB 2 years after MALLRATS, where now they are bored. They hang out at TRISH THE DISHE'S PLACE (No, she's a girl, not a dish) who's from MALLRATS. They get a call from HOLDEN from CHASING AMY who owes them money (The issue goes up to that point, then ight after it. It's the diner scene from AMY) and they decide to go to SHERMER ILL from the '80's John Hughes movies, like Breakfast club, because Judd Nelson's the only one dealing.
