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 th

Some oft-kilter, 4 panel comics that may make you smile. There's nothing earth shattering here but I did find some humor. This is probably for a teen or older audience. There is some cursing and adult themes. The comics mainly revolve around a reoccurring cast of a robot, a dog, the Grim Reaper, a slutty witch (She refers to herself as such), a gay couple, and a kid ghost.

Received a review copy from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the
I really enjoyed this!

I'm not usually a huge graphic novel fan but I do enjoy short panel comics so I thought I'd give this a go. Specifically, I really enjoy the comics by these creators. I've been following them on Instagram for a while and I enjoy their content.

This collection was really fun. I particularly enjoyed the slutty witch and sentient robot panels, I'd love more of them. The slutty witch is my spirit animal!

The art style is simple but the comedy is great. Overall, I thoroughly enjo

Whether you’re single, in a relationship, pining over someone, or just feeling dead inside, Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich’s War and Peas: Funny Comics for Dirty Lovers is the romantic humor for people who find reasons to laugh in the dark.

Maybe you’ll find yourself in the witch or the vampire she’s dating. Maybe you’ll relate to a robot’s unrequited love for its creator. Maybe you’re just a ghost looking f

I was really excited for this one, but didn't really find myself laughing hardly at all and found a lot of it quite boring.

I've never seen the webcomic, so these comics were all completely new to me. Despite the subtitle, they aren't all that raunchy. There are only a few that wouldn't be appropriate for younger readers (most teens have probably seen worse, anyway).

I enjoyed some of the recurring characters such as the slutty witch, the two Bobs, the little ghost boy, and the robot. None of the comics were laugh-out-loud funny (at least, not in my opinion), but they are amusing.

This was hilarious! I found myself laughing so hard at some of the comics in here! It’s a fun and sometimes morbid tromp into humanity and it was awesome.

The only reason why it isn’t a full five stars is because of all the suicide jokes which could be deemed harmful to some people. This contains a lot of dark humor, so if that isn’t your sort of thing then I wouldn’t recommend it to you.

For all those who like dark humor and don’t take it too seriously you will probably really enjoy this and fi

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 off-k

I enjoyed these comics so much - these made me laugh a lot. The humor in them is a little dark and twisted mixed with a little nerdy and feminism things and I absolutely love it!
I would highly recommend it for anyone with a dark sense of humor - they won't be dissappointed!

This was a hilarious read; a fast one too. I came to know of the creators of these comics through Twitter. Later I found out how big they were! War and Peas is well worth the hype. These don't make you giggle, they make you laugh out loud, scream in laughter. I like how the characters reappear after some pages—it was a nice touch. Morbid, dark, wickedly funny. There are vampires, the Grim reaper, a witch trying online dating, ghost, robots, scientists—a mad, funny cast that are guaranteed to mak ...more

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.
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

~This ARC has been gently provided in exchange for an honest review~

Comics with a dark and morbid humor. Quite original and funny.
There are several characters with their own strips, such as the Grim Reaper, a dog, a robot, and a witch (those are my favourites).
All the comics in the book are new, in case you follow War and Peas on instagram.

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!

I got an ARC of this book.

I  have seen this comic around for a while, but I couldn't have told you the name of it until now. The main ones I had seen were of Death and Slutty Witch. So it was really nice to read more than a comic every few weeks. 

There is no cohesive plot through the comics. So reading straight through the collection is not necessary. You can read this any way that you like. You can skip to all the Death comics and just enjoy Death doing w
This silly volume collects the panels of the War and Peas web comic. There are several running themes, my favorite was the skateboarding death who loves his (her?) job. The humor is rather dark. Some jokes are dirty, others slapstick, some are just silly. I found it mildly amusing, neither too great nor too bad.

Amusing cartoons full of dark humor with several recurring characters whose slowly developing storylines occasionally cross over. In addition to Slutty Witch and the Grim Reaper on the cover, there are the seemingly immortal gay couple Bob and Bob, the very mortal Penny and her husband, the professor and her sentient robot, Good Boy the dog, and Gary the boy ghost. Worth a look if your taste in humor is a bit twisted.

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 p

I come across the War and Peas comics once in a while when I'm goofing around on the Internet, so I was excited when this ARC was available on Netgalley! I really enjoyed this collection. The humour is a little dry and dark, so probably not all of it is for everyone. But it's still entertaining! The art style is unique and accessible and despite the book being a collection of single page comics, there was some narrative there which was pretty cool! Would definitely recommend if

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.

/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.

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.

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 us ...more

This is great for those who are already fans of the War and Peas comics as well as those who love dark humor mixed with nerdy and feminist humor for adults. For those who don't enjoy such humor, this wouldn't be a good fit. The book is a quick read but very fun.

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!
