Fangs is a comic collection from the creator of Sarah’s Scribbles, Sarah Anderson. It’s the snippets of a relationship between a vampire and a werewolf and I’m going to share my full impressions with you.
I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I wanted to check out this book because I’ve been a follower of Sarah and her Sarah’s Scribbles comics for a while now. So seeing a collection of comics that depart from the Scribbles but keep some of the clever and relatable humor had me intrigued.
Like I said, this book is a collection of different comics that feature Elisa, a vampire, and Jimmy, her werewolf boyfriend, and their unique relationship. There is no chronological story necessarily but there is progression throughout the book of their relationship.
I found this book to be very cute and clever. There are many fun references to common werewolf and vampire tropes that are incorporated well and made me laugh out loud at times. It was almost a point of pride to get the joke and think “Ha I get it” to myself.
I really like the simple black and white art, which is common for Sarah’s work as Sarah’s Scribbles is the same. But the styles between the two differ which really makes Fangs stand alone and stand strong. The art for Fangs fits Fangs really well.
Overall I found Fangs a very cute and clever comic collection. It was an enjoyable and quick read that I recommend to really anyone, especially fans of her Sarah Scribbles works and slice-of-life comics in general.
Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf? Let me know with a comment below.
Werewolf all the way! This was an enjoyable book, and despite them being monsters, their relationship issues are relatable as they work through the awkwardness and excitement of being a new couple.
Ooh this looks really cool, I’ll have to pick this up!
This reminds me of the UK cartoon Nemi for its simple style and dark humour. 🖤✨
I would rather be a werewolf. I’m kinda wild at heart and vampires seem a little too cold for me, if that makes sense, haha
