How much trouble can one dog person get into? Like, all of it. Seriously. Naughty dog.

We kick off our recommended reading list with two books about love and alcohol.
I want to review Isolation Play, and give it a full in-depth analysis because it’s an interesting novel that deserves to be broken down. But I can’t write a review without giving away major spoilers. I just can’t do it. Trying to review it that way dances around the issues and doesn’t do the book justice. So here’s the deal. Follow these simple steps, and together we’re going to give Isolation Play a great review.
Being a teenager is awkward enough already, without the problem of turning into a cartoon fox. Sucks to be Fenton Cobbler.

The fact that the prerequisite for reading Heathen City Volume 3: Joker to the Thief is to read the previous to volumes is reason enough for me to hesitate in suggesting it. The fact that the author hasn’t seemed to learn from the mistakes of the past two years is more than reason enough for me to recommend avoiding it altogether.
Tthere are a whole lot of comics out there featuring animal-people that do not identify themselves as “furry” because the creators don’t. Kazu Kibushi’s Amulet, an engrossing graphic novel filled with beautiful art and some fox people, happens to fall into that category.
Even by themselves, the terms “amateur,” “adult,” and “furry” can all give one pause when it comes to fiction; when all three apply to the same work, there can be even more reason for hesitation. Still, when it’s only a mere ten bucks to see whether someone’s debut novella is any good, it can be worth it to gamble from time to time, and in this case, for the most part, that gamble has paid off.
The Cupcakes series are intended to be “short and sweet” novellas, and for better or worse, The Peculiar Quandary of Simon Artyle fits the bill.
