Sep 09, Jan Philipzig rated it it was ok Shelves: Animal Crackers collects early, originally self-published comics by Gene Luen Yang.

Like its teenage protagonists, the book is sweet and funny but also still a little clumsy and awkward. The very endorsable "be yourself" message that is clearly close to Yang's heart already permeates these stories, but will be delivered more effectively in his later masterpiece American Born Chinese.

Interesting to read in terms of Yang's development as a graphic novel artist and writer. This was one of his first books I loved seeing the development and change as he continues to write fantastic books.

In comics, the action happens a great deal more quickly: I felt a bit jangled. The way of the comic is going to take some adjustment for me. On another note, I was disappointed to realize -- almost instantly -- that Gordon in "Animal Crackers" looks almost exactly like Yang depicts himself in "American Born Chinese", only fatter and with Gene luen yang wife sexual dysfunction different nose.

Yang included some of his character sketches in the book, and I actually liked the curly-headed version of Gordon better than the one that made the cut.

I give Yang props for the wild, burning field that is his imagination, and I'll re-read to "Animal Crackers" after I've gotten my feet wet with other comics.

Things are plugged into noses. It's a bit odd. And I really hated that the smart girl goes for the dumb guy. But that's my own neurosis. I like Yang's illustration style, and I identify with his general vibe and voice.

Definitely the work of a less mature creator than the guy who did American Born Chinese. But that makes sense. Aug Gene luen yang wife sexual dysfunction, Robert rated it really liked it. The ending felt a little inadvertently ambiguous, and could have used some more deliberate ambiguity or maybe it was deliberate?
