...Anna & Froga: Want a Gumball by Anouk Ricard — This is an amusing collection of short comics by Ricard involving a little girl and her animal friends — a frog, a worm, a cat and a dog. They’re all a little cruel to each other, which keeps the material from being too treacly. Actually, this reminded me of nothing so much as a G-rated version of Matt Furie’s Boys Club comics. Take out the drug and poop references, and the psychedelic asides, and the similarities seem more apparent. Overall, it’s a cute, funny book that kids will appreciate, but not one that lingers long in the memory after reading it...
