*Provided by Netgalley (as always a great opportunity to read some amazing works)

"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 creating a simple but charming, engaging, tongue in cheek, with lots of dark humor, comic, where recurrent characters like the robot, the dead boy, the witch... have some very funny moments. It is never boring, and it's read in a sitting.

On the downside, it is not anything that you haven't seen a hundred times before, because many of these play of words, vignettes, are just variations of many others, and that means that sometimes there will be more chuckles than laughs. And a couple just fall flat (but that could be my sense of humor, more than they being bad per se).

The drawing style is simple, but perfect for this kind of comics, where the punchline, the little details, and the humor are the most important part. They convey perfectly the authors' purpose and are very funny.

Strongly recommended.

The best: the humor and drawing style

The worst: not particularly original

Further reading: just try Terry Pratchett, or the first volumes of OnePunch Man, for example
