Pink Panther Volume 1

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for granting me access to an advance readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

When I was a kid, I used to love watching the Pink Panther cartoons on TV. They were so colourful and crazily funny, as we saw the Pink Panther, the Inspector, the ant and the ant eater in all their mad adventures. Well, now they have been immortalised in the pages of this collection of crazy comics.

As always, when talking about graphic novels and comics, the illustrations are the key, more so than any plot. With this book, the art is as wonderful as you would expect. I could even imagine the ant eater speaking in the voice from the original cartoon. As this is a collection of comics, there are many short comic strips and stories, so the plots are very simple, usually involving some plain stupidity, which makes this really quite hilarious! It reads like watching a cartoon, and there is no loss of quality for that.

I really enjoyed this light read. It was a real pleasure to read this blast from the past, and I can only add one thing - may there be many more volumes!
