The Argyle Sweater is an adorable comic for adults but it is inspired by an adorable childlike imagination and whimsy. It's set up as an alternative dimension where all the creatures from our world have made their homes. These include dinosaurs, unicorns, horses, zebras, hippos, bears, cats, monkeys, dogs, foxes, skateboards, dinosaurs, unicorns, bumble bees, hawks, crows, owls, sharks, turtles, manta rays, dinosaurs, and lots more. If you've ever been to a kids party or had an animal party as a child, then you already know what this sort of whimsicality can produce.
A great many folks are asking if the Argyle Sweater Comic has a story to tell. Well, you'll be able to find the story in a hardcover edition available right now. You'll get twelve days of fun in the sun, with the Bear, The Fox, The Bee, The Dolphin, The Wolf, The Scorpion, The Chicken, The Duck, The Loon, The Crane, The Owl, The Unicorn, and The Coyote. Imagine how much fun twelve days could be with each character, each day of the year!
One thing that might make the twelve days of fun better is if you could find a place in your house where you could hide them out of sight of your family members but still have access to them. For example, hide them in a closet or behind a picture or second door. If you could do that, you'd be able to read them a second time through this Argyle sweater Comic. And who knows, maybe your faithful reader might even write you a follow-up story to go with it.
Some folks are saying that it's sort of like a time capsule. And a time capsule is what we're looking for here. In other words, they're going to tell you the story of how these characters came to be. So if you like those stories, this is the book for you. On the second day, you can choose which of the twelve days fits your reading style the best, start with No Longer A Boy, or if you prefer Jack, it opens with A Time capsule of Jack and Sally's Wedding.
After that, if you prefer to start at the beginning, you can pick No Longer A Boy, or you can start with No Longer A Girl and follow the story accordingly. This book is chock full of colorful characters, including a baby named Molly. It's also written in a very engaging way, so you don't feel like the story is taking you out of the story beat by slowing down. In fact, it actually builds up the story to where you know the end, but you're not going to be disappointed.
The art is just as wonderful as you would expect from an Argyle Sweater Comic, with superb detail. I especially love the detailed facial expressions of Sally. The facial expressions really add to the character, and you can tell that a lot of effort has gone into the drawing and coloring. The book is full of a wide variety of comic strips, each one beautifully drawn and colored.
I personally enjoyed the first couple strips, but when I read the whole thing, I was blown away by how good some of the older strips are. I particularly like the "Big" strip, which has Tim Burton coloring in a picture of himself, which looked awesome. Overall, I was very happy with this book, and would recommend it highly to anyone who likes a fun children's book. I would definitely recommend this to someone who enjoys a bit of alternative history, or just simply loves historical fiction in general. It's a quick read, but a great one, with a lot of entertainment value.
