A Klaus review from Forbidden Planet
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…"
"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."
"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."
