What has been missing from the field of graphic novel storytelling for some time is the innocence and journey of American discovery that has been embodied in the work of Charles Schulz and in a different medium, Norman Rockwell. As newspaper circulation slowly declines with the advent of 24 hour TV news stations and the world wide web, where massive amounts of information are at one's fingertips, one of the victims is the comic strip. I remember waking every morning, grabbing the newspaper and ...more

You won’t find any superheroes, or femme fatales. Sunnyville Stories will remind you more of Steamboat Willy, the precursor to Mickey Mouse (if you’re old enough to remember, or have any sense of comic history). Or perhaps the old Little Rascals serials that played out on televisions in the afternoons when it was raining and our parents wouldn’t let us go outside and play. (Yes, I write from a generation when we didn’t want to sit inside in front of the TV unless Tarzan was on and then it was ba ...more

I just received (in a very timely manner I might add) Sunnyville Stories by Max West in the mail, went to the local park to have lunch and a read. It was delightful and quirky. I won this in the give away and it was a nice change from from the dark comics and graphic novels I usually read. Liked the art a great deal. Reminds one of comics from a bygone era. All in all a good summer afternoon read. Would def recommend it. Kudos to Sunnyville Stories. I am also looking forward to reading ...more

I really thought Sunnyville Stories: Volume 1 was cute. I liked the country cat Sam, and I have to admit that I like that the main characters were cats. I really like the The Train Robbers episode, and thought the shading of that one was done well. I really liked the bonus feature, the expressions of Sam and Rusty are a little more exaggerated, I liked this. I think children and adults could both like this.

Sunnyville Stories is a cute comic about some small town anthropomorphic animals. The stories aren't too deep and the characters aren't developed very strongly. This would be a great book for beginning readers and the comic element along with the animals and the simplicity of the stories would make this book appeal more strongly to them. All in all this was a quick fun read with some cool artwork. --I received this book as part of Goodreads.com's first reads program.--

The first volume in the series, it promises great things to come. Max West uses his great artistic style to breath life into this idyllic coming of age story. Like all great art it is largely autobiographical and this is a rare original concept for a graphic novel.
