My daughter and I LOVE Bob's Burgers and I was excited to see this available for review. This is my first comic book review!

I am usually not a big fan of cartoons. Bob's Burgers is another story. The characters are so original and funny. These characters....they get me! I really feel like I know people that are so similar to some of them. As someone who isn't into a lot of comics or cartoons etc. I was honestly shocked at how much I enjoy the show. Fart jokes, butt jokes, terribly funny puns an

Luckily they are pretty good at storytelling. Bob’s Burgers: Medium Rare features several tales by each of the kiddos.

Louise’s stories are full of adventure . . .

I receieved a copy of this graphic novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
^^ My general reaction to this graphic novel.

The writing in this graphic novel does not disappoint, and feels authentic to the show.

Tina is butt obessessed

Louise, maniacal

and Gene is still our lovable musician.

However, I felt like something, or rather, someone was missing...

I missed Bob and Linda's part of the graphic novel. Yeah they were in the kids' section, but I really missed Linda's boozy letters ♥

These were wonderful ! Each issue, the art, the alternate covers (amazing!!!); and all of the stories and things they put in here are hilarious ! Gene’s Rhymey Rhymes are growing on me fast bc I loved the multiple part Genederella (Bob’s part !!! Haha ) and that they included the alley raccoons and so many of the other characters. They are always what makes B’s B so funny!
The pin up art is great ! This was such a good idea. I love the colors in Louise’s segment but each story or panel has so mu

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My copy had 122 pages, but this is the only edition I can find here on Goodreads so far.

Super fun read for fans of the series. It's short little snippets of different things, so not really for people who aren't familiar with the show at all.

I think Bob's Burgers is a very underrated show, but thankfully it does have a cult following and the show has really lasted longer than I think most thought it would. The comic doesn't quite catch the exact "flavor" Bob's Burgers (see what I did there?) but it is still entertaining. It differs from the Simpsons comic in that while the Simpsons comic tries to recreate the show on paper as close as possible, this comic tries to take the characters in different directions. The art in the Simpsons ...more
Once again, I really love the show but just don't feel that it works very well as a graphic novel, especially when every issue is split into three smaller stories. This time around they've started doing those stories in multiple parts [i.e. part 1 will be in one issue and part 2 in the next], but that kind of makes it worse somehow.

Genderella and the Fairy Bob Mother was pretty cute though. I've always loved how this series isn't afraid to play around with gender roles.

I love Bob's Burgers and I love comics, so it only seemed natural that I picked up Bob's Burgers: Medium Rare. This is actually my intro to the Bob's Burgers' comics and quite simply I loved it. Each comic was a hilarious extension into the minds of Bob and Linda's unique children: Tina, Gene and Louise. Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm probably the biggest Louise fan. I have even dressed up as Louise for Halloween. I'm obsessed with that pink bunny ear wearing weirdo.

The pineapple story was my favorite! I wish there were more bits by Bob and Linda, but the longer stories for the kids were well done so I'm not too mad

A collection of all-original comic book stories featuring the Belcher family from Bob’s Burgers!

So, I adore Bob’s Burgers (the TV show) and I’m pretty much convinced that Louise is my spirit animal. Having the opportunity to read this made me very happy. As it is advertised as being “from the producers, writers & animators of the hit animated show Bob’s Burgers” it is only natural to compare the book to the show, isn’t it? And usually books tend to be better than the movies, don’t they?
Well, no

This is an okay collection, but I'm a little disappointed. This book includes 5 issues.

Each character gets their own little segment per issue, which is kind of cool. Unfortunately, Bob and Linda's pieces were really small and kind of uninteresting. It's a shame because while Louise is my favorite character, part of what makes the show so hilarious is Bob and Linda's couple dynamic. I mean, it is called Bob's Burgers, not Bob's Kids' Burgers. I wish the focus was taken away from the kids a little

At the moment of writing, all I know from Bob's Burgers is still coming from the few comics that I read. I know, I will watch the show some time when I have more time.

While featuring the same parts that were in the previous comics, the one page entries were not in every issue this time. And that despite the fact that I liked these best. They also switched the idea a little from Bob's burger ideas to foodtrucks and Linda trying to take a

I freaking love Bob's Burgers and so do my kids, we happily watch the same episodes over and over again.

Bob and Linda Belcher along with their crazy children Tina, Louise and Gene run their burger restaurant whilst coping with the usual family dramas like coping with a biker funeral or exposing a science teacher. It is a bit bonkers and I love it.

Medium Rare features lots of great stories such as Gene's attempts at musical numbers, Tina's erotic friend fiction plus cover art, Bob's fantasy burge

Ya guys, it's fucking magical. There are so many brilliant moments. I found myself stay up to finish it, and ended up cackling REALLY loudly at like three in the morning, almost waking up my mom who was visiting. How rare is it to find a graphic novel that shocks you into giggle fits? The show is fucking hilarious, that's a given, but it translates perfectly into this volume. Not only are there SO MANY BUTTS, but all they sci-fi adventures a geek could ever hope for. Plus, I can't talk about thi ...more

So, I am a bit late to the Bob's Burgers game. I only watched the first episodes this year, within the last month really. I'm sad that I cannot watch on Netflix now that I finally have that, but from what I can see-it's a great show. I love the characters, and seeing as how my library only offers the books and not the show, I'm going with this.

This collection of extra stories (that came after the show, and not before, as comics are wont to do) is beauty-full, and the alternate covers had me wond
A fun extension of the TV show, yet not essential for fans. Although I love each of the Belcher kids and the special dynamic that each bring to the family, I was disappointed that there is so little of Bob and Linda here; this is understandable if the comic is aiming for a young audience. I didn't care much for Gene's somewhat forced rhymes, Louise's mysteries are fine, and Tina's entertaining stories allow for the most cleverness. It's a little jarring at first to see the characters drawn so di ...more
Genederella and Bizarre Bizarre really saved the story aspect of this comic. I thought the other stories were just okay. I didn't like any of Tina's but all she talk about is butts and boys so that makes sense. I wanted more Bob and Linda, not just the kids. Louise could have been funnier and more prominent. Some of the art styles were ok to meh. I enjoyed the alternative covers and pinups added. I still want to read on to see if the stories get better in the next volume.

Really enjoyed the creativity and quality of these stories. They were extensions of the Bob's Burgers universe that remained true to the characters. My only quibble is that I'm not sure they were fully adjusted to the comic book format because there were a couple of spots where I had to triple-read a section to try to figure out what was happening. But overall would definitely recommend.

In the first trade paper back all the illustrations were in the style of the TV show. In this one they varied. It also left Bob & Linda out almost completely. It's all about the kids. Still a fun read. ...more
