Guys arguing endlessly about mundane subjects CAN be films. Think the diner scene from "Reservoir Dogs" or even the movie this book is based on.

Guys arguing endlessly about the value of Star Wars comic book form? Eh, not so funny.

Though I have GOT to get my hands on a "Tickle-Me Ackbar".

All new story with our favorite Clerks from the first movie -- black and white, just like that same movie.

Our Clerks get sucking into the Stars Wars figurine world -- there are the over the counter toys, um, "action figures", and then there are the back room deals where the very special, very rare dolls, "action figures", are acquired.

There is plenty of sarcasm, customer degradation, and derision handed out for everyone.

The art is heavily stylized, very appropriate for the title. Two artists are

There are two things in particular I like about the Clerks franchise:

1. Its authors make no pretense about its level of filth. Clerks is a scuzzy, scuzzy world with scummy, scummy people. And as the property's become more popular, Smith and his crew has maintained that level of scuzziness, instead of toning things down to appeal to a broader audience.

There are some sick, sick moments in this book: a lot of it misogynistic. And I can't say I "enjoyed" those moments in the conventional sense, but

Finally managed to plow through this slim trade by treating it as my "bathroom book" for a couple of weeks. Yes, it required multiple bowel movements. I think Kevin Smith would appreciate that. Awesome art from Jim Mahfood for most of it, and then even better art from Ande Parks and ... oh, I forgot who penciled it? Not like it matters. This is a real niche appeal read, and I'm in that niche. Snootchie bootchies!

Took a little stroll down 90's slacker/dork/fanboy/juvenile hell today. Pretty bland, comfortably crappy stuff; shitty art. Laughed once or twice. All the characters are lazy, stupid jerks who lack even the psuedo-intellectualism of Kevin Smith's lesser, poop-joke inspired works (I write straight-faced as I stare at the cover of Jason Mewes mooning me).

Siguiendo los acontecimientos de la película, "Clerks: The Comic Books" retoma el humor directo y las referencias a la cultura Pop sin ir más lejos y evitando una profundidad innecesaria para el título. Algo extraña para quienes desconozcan el universo de Kevin Smith, será muy disfrutada por los fans de siempre.

The first one was alright, the second one was BEAUTIFUL, and the third one was pretty rad, too - and it made me want to rewatch Clerks, which is always a good thing, so I'd say this was pretty OK in my book.

I read these on the plane and totally offended the lady next to me.

I was especially excited about the "lost" funeral scene.
