Do you remember the TV show Rugrats? Since then the creator has been delving into comics and this is her debut. Totally weird, totally amazing!
When I first picked up Percy Gloom, I had doubts about it. I didn’t immediately get into the style it’s drawn in, and I couldn’t help but see Percy as such a strange, annoying, whiny little mama’s boy, but Malkasian’s style of storytelling quickly won me over. Despite his shortcomings and constant grumbling tummy, I started to really admire Mr. Gloom for sticking to his word and finding his place in a strange world instead of slapping himself to death, which apparently comes easily to Glooms.
