A Klaus review from Forbidden Planet


Here

It's a good one, saying:

"There’s a delicious sense of timing and visual gags all through the pages, often a funny downbeat payoff, or more accurately, the moment just before or immediately after the actual payoff. You do the work, Short just delivers the means to connect the jokes…"

and;

"over the course of the book the gags continue to work, the themes develop, and what you get in the end is some strange mutated traditional comic strip."

and finally;

"With it’s laid back, contemplative philosophising, it’s an attractive and enthrallingly entertaining read. Klaus is a pocket sized delight of a work. You could do far, far worse than to try it as a surprise stocking filler."
