(My original review was for Bee and Puppycat #1, a single issue, but then Bee and Puppycat Volume 1, which collects issues #1-4, got added to the same listing. To make matters not at all confusing, they’ve now been separated with #1 getting its separate listing and Volume 1 now being listed alone – with my review of #1 on the wrong page! So what follows first is my review of Volume 1 for March 2015 and the one after that is my original review for issue #1 from July 2014. Oh, Goodreads librarians ...more

(I haven't seen any of the cartoon so...that might be why I didn't get the plot really.)

This was a super cute comic, the art is beautiful and the colour palette is adorable. I won't be carrying on with it any time soon though because the story didn't make too much sense and it was more of a collection of singles.

What I did love though is in issue #2 with the QR codes! How they lead to the music of the music boxes was such a nice touch and added to the reading experience!

I'm super sad to say that this comic was generally not for me. Although the illustrations were colourful and often fun to look at, I struggled to fully connect with the storyline and characters. ...more

- the art is beautiful
- these color palettes are A++++
- puppycat is hilarious with or without context

- even as someone who HAS seen some of the cartoon, this makes very little sense, and I feel like it would make NO SENSE AT ALL to the average person who picks this up without knowing it's a cartoon series as well
- no cohesion WHATSOEVER to these little story snippets

This is one of the most unexpectedly disappointing reads of the year, geez.

I watched all the eps and the pilot, so I just had to check the comics... and they're so cute as well!!
Really hope we get to go back to the Space Outlaw story, and also see more of Deckard in the next issues.
Just as a note: I never heard, or seen the Bee and Puppycat cartoon/youtube videos/whatever. I just saw this graphic novel/comic while searching for new ones, and I loved the art and the description. After this, I might check them out, as I am highly confused about stuff happening in this one.

Because, yes, like I have noticed quite a few times lately with comics, you just get thrown in head first and then told to have fun. I still have fun, but I am getting tired of the silent requirement to jus
I love the Bee and Puppycat cartoon, so when I learned that there were graphic novels, I knew I had to get them. The art is adorable and the stories fun. Said stories actually don't follow up from the end of the animate series, but rather is an addition to the stream of adventures. That said, it's a nice addition to my collection, and if you enjoyed watching the animation, then you will certainly love this volume! ...more

The first half (50 or so pages) was exceptional: colourful, quirky, brimming with creative story-telling and a surprising, thinking emotional punch. Four stars!

The second half? Like the tracks suddenly stopped and my circus train ride jarred into shocked disappointment that was definitely full-stop unfun.

It felt like a rip-off, because although the guest artists were all talented in their own rights, to set them to the task of crafting stories and art based on the original creator of Puppycat's

I'm a little disappointed that the comics did nothing to expand on Bee's character traits, instead thy just focused on how lazy, hungry and poor she was. But the art styles were beautiful and I love these two so much! ...more

I didn’t know there was a cartoon for this... probably why I don’t get the plot (if there was any) but the art styles were really cute.

*4.5 stars*

So I really had no idea that Bee and Puppycat was a web series. I’ve seen merchandise on We Love Fine, and even own a Puppycat plushy (super cute!), but my knowledge of what it was was limited to the website I mentioned above. That said, I jumped at the chance to read the first collection of the comics. And I loved it!

Bee is a mystical temp worker, and Puppycat is her magical, mysterious pet. I’m assuming the web series gives us the background of how they met, but not knowing didn’t d

There can never be enough Bee and Puppycat. NEVER.
(Seriously thinking about cosplaying Bee at my work's con this summer...)
I love Bee and Puppycat. I want more of that show... all the time. And so when I found out that there was a Bee and Puppycat comic, I waited eagerly for the first volume. These stories are adorable, funny, and have the same quirky, charming characters from the show. Each artist brings their own style to the table, playing with Natasha Allegri's creation. Some stories here are stronger than others, and I found myself wanting more. Since there are only a handful of episodes, and a lot of hinted ba ...more

I love everything about Natasha Allegri's style and concept for Bee and Puppycat! Unfortunately only the first story in this volume is actually created by her - and for those of us who've already watched the Bee & Puppycat episodes in video format, it offers nothing new. The rest of the stories were a mix of mediocere and bad, with the one or two sortof-fun exceptions. I was so disappointed with this - I was really hoping to see more of Allegri's brilliance - but as said the bulk of the volume i ...more

Extra star specifically for the art itself--I expected this to be a compilation of sequential comic issues rather than a collection of one-shots, but that's on me. Nevertheless, I did enjoy Bee's food-focused adventures; I just wish there had been a much longer one included. ...more

I'm not terribly familiar with is series, but decided to check out this volume. Bee is not particularly ambitious, in fact, she's pretty lazy, and all she seems to think about is eating sweet things. I can understand the sweet cravings... : ) Puppycat is perpetually frowning and I thought he was cute.
So Bee and Puppycat have adventures with each task assigned to them by an AI. Not much happens in this collection of stories, but I liked Bee's cheerfulness and optimism, and I liked the happy feel

4.5 Stars. THIS IS THE FREAKING SWEETEST! Okay, so I 100% recommend you watch the youtube episodes before you read this. This comic isn't really meant to standalone, but rather show snapshots of the characters from the show.

Bee and Puppycat is this absurd little creation that manages to be as relatable as it is strange. We have magical music boxes and otherworldly creatures, paired with the all too familiar experience of having to clean an overwhelmingly messy house, or rush to pick up somethin

Check out the Bee and Puppycat shorts on Cartoon Hangover. If you don’t like them then this comic is not for you. If you do like them, then yes, buy this comic. It’s definitely a fun and enjoyable read.

I LOVED the interaction in this graphic novel with the QR codes. The music was beautiful and I loved seeing the different art styles throughout the different stories.
The end with all the cover art was also incredible. Really liked this quick read.

I don't normally add comics/graphic novels but since I love Bee and Puppycat so much and I got my issue in the post today I just wanted to add it.

Loving the colours and style, so beautiful.

I binged this back in 2014? when I had a eating disorder and my panic attacks had gotten worse, I also had insomnia for weeks at a time, so I would watched this show with their calming music and charming characters to help me calm down. Needless to say this show has a big place in my heart. The short stories were very charming, I like seeing all the different artwork ( although I’m a bit biased towards Natasha Alegri’s art ) people unfamiliar with bee and puppy cat as a whole will probably hate ...more

I got this in a Humble Bundle of comics. I hadn't heard or seen this before, which surprised me given all the accomplishments in the blurb.

Bee and Puppycat reminds me a lot of Adventure Time in that I didn't understand what was going on, it jumped around a lot seemingly randomly and it took awhile to grow on me. Maybe it makes more sense for those already familiar, but as a total newcomer not so much.

It's cute. I like the art style and aesthetic. The mini-story about Puppycat getting Bee food

Such a lovely collection of adventures. The absolute best use of QR codes, completely validated QR codes as a technology of any use whatsoever. What a pleasure! There has not been a book that has made an exclamation point visibly jump out of the top of my head for all to see so much as this one has. I showed it to everyone who came within 10 feet of this book for the next 24 hours after reading it. Amazing.

Colorful, cute and slightly confusing?

I'm a big fan of Bee and Puppycat. I've watched the entire web series. I've even cosplayed as Bee to NYCC. When I found out there were graphic novels for the series, I searched far and wide to get them but could never find the first volume. Luckily, as you can see with this review, I found it!

This was a very cute and quick read. The different styles of artwork throughout this graphic novels pages was stunning. Each different from the next but t

I don't know how to feel about this very cutesy wootsy interactive comic. I definitely liked the characters but I wanted to finish the story started in the beginning. This is just a random collection of shorts and I kept flipping back and forth looking for the ending of the "to be continued" section. Also, the interactive element was, like everything else in the book, cutesy, random and goofy. ...more

Really cute and I loved the art style, but as someone who hasn't seen the YouTube series, I found it hard to keep track of the storyline.

I'm definitely intrigued enough to suss out the YouTube series, but as a standalone comic, I found it to be very lacking in coherency.
