***Advance Review Copy generously provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.***

Okay, this book had the unlucky fate that I read this right after the Awkward Yeti which is a very tough competition and this book just could not compete.

I actually did not realise I knew this artist before but while reading this I realised that I knew so many of the strips which was not very good. (I stated several times before that I do prefer if these online arts to a book have more new content

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley.

Some of this was super funny and some of it was kinda meh but overall it was enjoyable! I especially liked the use of recurring characters spread out through the comics. Would recommend if you have a darker/drier sense of humor.

Funny, absurd and dark humor in a web comic cartoons style. Very light for sure but it had me laughing a couple of time so no waste. Small piece of entertainment! Enjoyable!

A collection of four-panel gag comics which at first appear to stand alone, but gradually stitch together into something more. Not only do characters such as the first sentient robot, the dog who's tired of being a good boy, the grim reaper and the slutty witch recur, but their next appearance will build on the punchline of their previous one, and occasionally they even cross over. Who knew the mania for shared universes would run so far? And it is definitely something closer to that than the ...more

Originally published on my blog Nonstop Reader.

War and Peas: Funny Comics for Dirty Lovers is a collection of webcomics produced by Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich. Originally published on their webcomic War and Peas, this collection, due out 3rd March 2020 is 160 pages and will be available in paperback format.

The art is deceptively simple. The single page comics are in 4 panel format, with many recurring characters (Death shows up quite often, for example). The humor is ever so slightly

I'm what you'd call a "strict reviewer" and I rarely give out five star reviews, but when I turned the last e-page there were no doubts about how I'd rate this collection. Obviously, when it comes to humor what really matters is what kind of stuff you find funny, but to get a better sense of what's going on here I'll try to summarize for you:

All comics have four panels, and most are gathered on one page each, topped with a fitting (and often funny) title. A few comics are split on two separate

Thanks NetGalley for this ARC, in exchange for an honest review. Ok, so I already love War and Peas, and clearly I have need of this wonderful book in both my personal and our libraries collection. Dark, twisted, witty comics that will have you chuckling out-loud. Yes, you will indeed chuckle aloud when reading this, beware, I realize this is almost a dead notion. How dare we express joy and agreement? I truly can't wait to get our copy so that I can read it, chuckle aloud in our somewhat ...more

"War and Peas" is a very funny comic book, with interesting little characters that appear all through its pages that reminded me of early Terry Pratchett, when simple humor and plays on words where the basis of his stories. In "War and Peas" the same happens. You have little vignettes that tell a story in just one, two pages, all of the dark humor kind. And Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich have done a great job in

Like nearly every collection of comics I discover on NetGalley, War and Peas began as a webcomic that I'd never heard of, but will now follow religiously.

A little bit morbid and a whole lot weird, War and Peas features four-panel comics that are loosely related, with a recurring cast of characters. There's no-nonsense scientist and her sentient robot, who's

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

If you like comics, especially morbid comics, then you'll love these individual comics. If you already read them, then you'll be a fan of this collection.

They're oftentimes linked however with the same characters. There is a lot of hilarity within this book of comics. And there are some really wild parts too! Sometimes you're left with a question mark and you're wondering "did I really read that?" in

War and Peas an odd, quirky, morbid, hilarious comic I found on Instagram. Being a fan of their work, I was excited to read this collection. I had read and enjoyed several of the comics in this collection, but there were some I wasn't familiar with. There are also certain storylines that develop over the course of the collection, and it was fun to read those comics in order. This is definetly not a comic that will appeal to everyone, but there is a lot to like about these comics. My personal ...more

LOL, LMAO, and ROFLOL. This collection of wonderfully wry comics celebrates everything I love about War and Peas. The grim gallows humor coupled with brightly-colored, endearing illustrations makes for an enjoyable wink at humanity. Thank you,War and Peas, and thank you Andrews McMeel!

First of all, I'm really thankful for having been able to read this as an ARC.

I read it all in one sitting. It was truly funny. I found myself laughing out loud multiple times. The short comic format made it really easy to read, and I loved the dark humour throughout it.
Completely recommended to anyone who wants to have a fun time.

/I read this as an arc on NetGalley./

I was reading this comic on Tapas so when I saw there is an arc I had to read their comics again.
This is full of dark humor, witches, death, doggos.
This isn't for everyone and not all will find this funny. But for all readers out there with a dark sense of humor, this is the book for you.

But at the same time, some of the topics are drawn from everyday life and hard-hitting.

I've received ARC from publisher via Netgalley in exchange for honest review.

War and Peas: Funny Comics for Dirty Lovers by Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich is a physical book version of War and Peas webcomic series that's still being published on authors' website. It's coming out in March 2020 in paperback form. Just as webcomic, it's in 4 panel format. It's totally not a read for everyone. I'd advise not to read it if you are under age of 18. It shows a very specific dark humour that might be
If you familiar with the web comic War and Peas, then you know the humor here, a very dark, oddly funny four panels, with the kicker in the second and last panel. The main characters are Death, a witch, a dog, a robot and ghost. There are a few others, but those appear to be the ones used the most often.

I didn't find myself laughing out loud to any, though I did find them amusing.

It is the sort of book you would give as a joke, to people with the same dark humor as the authors.

Obviously, people

War and Peas is the funniest collection of comics I have read in a while! I was laughing out loud the entire time I was reading it. The comics are unique and unpredictable. I feel that this is the kind of book where you immediately want to share it with other people. I highly recommend War and Peas if you need a laugh and want to read about life from different and slightly twisted perspectives.

War and Peas is always a hit or miss with me having read some of their stuff online previously. Some of their stuff I find very humorous, other times I'm disgusted? with their work (disgusted seems to harsh here, but it's what I'm going with). I do find the art to be funny in it's simplicity, and I like the continual story lines. This is one of those that you have to read a few for yourself and see if you're willing to commit to the whole book.

Sadly, this book wasn't really for me. I did really love the robot, I thought he was adorable! But the bulk of the comics weren't to my personal taste unfortunately.

E-ARC received from netgalley.

Man, if being famous and writing a comic book is this easy, I could do that. I don’t see what’s special or stands out about this honestly, just generic stuff anyone would’ve made. I mean.

I've always loved War and Peas and it was so much fun to be able to read a collection of the comics!! They're usually very funny and relatable. I kind of want to read it again. If you need something to make you laugh, read this.

Oh this collection of comics is witty and funny and dark. They take beautiful unexpected turns that aren't really unexpected at all... I kept thinking, "Oh wow, you went there!" The book definitely worked for my sense of humor, or a sense of humor I appreciate.

I'm going to admit that I didn't like the cover and almost didn't read the book because of the cover (Yes, yes! So cliche!). Don't do that. Read the book.

This was a fun little comic book strip collection. I liked the recurring characters that appeared in this and the sexy with was most definetley a favorite. This was a fun way to pass an evening.

I got one of the first books. It's nice to have something in your hand, not just to look at the screen.
Overall, I think the comics are excellent.
Always surprises and a profound black humor.
I like to take the book in hand and read 2-3 comics.

Note: I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley.

I thought this was a great collection of comics. They were all funny, and I found the writing to be spot on. I kind of wished there were some essays in which the authors talk about the themes behind some of these topics (like the other comic books that have recently been released), but overall, I was quite happy with the book.
