so of course i had all the comic book issues of this and as soon as it came out in book format i had to buy that too. can someone explain this mad collection bug?? can someone stop it?? because between space and money shortages, im screwed. in a way its nice to have books absolutely everywhere, but in a way its pathological. i need a cure.

Ted Stearn does MTV animation, among others things. His credits include Beavis and Butthead. Fuzz and Pluck was originally serialized in Zero Zero Comics, and is the nicer side of Beavis and Butthead, for sure. There's an annoyed chicken and a sort of lost and lovable bear. Reminds me of Pogo for some reason, just spinning adventures. Fine artist, Stearn. I wasn't all that engaged, but this may just have to be where my mind is at the moment. I found it likable, all right?! It's pretty fun! Liked ...more

The continuing very odd adventures of a timid stuffed bear and a featherless rooster. Some strange part of me really relates to the hapless and strange characters and situations in this cleanly drawn graphic novel. The scene with the stuffed animals and dolls in a little girl's bedroom was both nightmarish and touching, as they rip off a stuffed duck's wings and stick them on Fuzz with band-aids so he can fly...

What I like most about this graphic novel is the way the author straddles the line between kiddie and grown-up stories. He doesn't quite manage to stay equally between the two as he ends up landing on the adult side. Sure, most of the characters are cute and they don't use bad language (except one of the characters is named Lardass). But very bad things happen to both Fuzz and Pluck. There is violence, drugging, death, and an evil mutant fruit named Sourpuss. None of the things I will allow my d ...more

I want to live in this surreal little animal world that Stearn has created. He expertly captures that bizarre, adorable, dream-like mood that so many try for and fail to truly pin down. This novel is reminiscent of playing with tiny animal toys when you are young, that effortless creative universe that is so weird yet so perfect. Ted Stearn just seems like one of the best people. A weird brain but not shocking or deranged, just the right amount of spacey.

Ted Stearn is a unique artist, bringing some truly wild and weird ideas to the world of comics. The world he has created follows a logic all it's own, and he has populated this world with an unpredictable mix of talking animals, sentient mutant fruits, and scheming stuffed toys. If you have a taste for the offbeat and the absurd, you'll dig this one; if not, you're likely to the be perplexed at the minimum, and thoroughly confused at the maximum.

Wacky graphic novel for grown-ups who like weird stories told in comic form (I guess that's me). Reminds me of "Krazy Kat" comics although maybe a bit easier to understand because of its more modern humor. I'll keep an eye out for more books featuring the "hapless li'l bear and his defeathered friend" in their unpleasant but entertaining adventures.

Fuzz & Pluck's adventures are pure genious; a black humor jewel, and a narrative work of art. Can't be left unread if dark humor, surrealism, and social criticism are called in attention.

Recommends it for: fans of "The Simpsons"
A fun romp that felt like mixing Tom Sawyer with The Simpsons. The plot was fun, if random. A good pick for those looking for a light-hearded graphic novel with bits of darker humor.

Just a fun,light hearted funny animal comic that skirts the border between being for kids amd some sort of twisted adult swim cartoon.
