The true story of a "city mouse" who moves to the "country" of Columbus, OH and what he finds there.

Andrea McEnaney's Review of City Mouse Goes West
Ok, I am slightly biased about this comic because I know the author but I have to say that "City Mouse Goes West" is a wonderful comic.

Ok, I am slightly biased about this comic because I know the author but I have to say that "City Mouse Goes West" is a wonderful comic. It chronicles the adventures of a mouse that came from New York City, the Big Apple, to Columbus, Ohio, the city where nothing much ever happens. It might seem strange that there would be much of a culture shock in such a move, but there is and Rich captures it perfectly. He shows the difference in dialect, the differences in behavior of the citizens. In fact, I remember him telling me that it was quite disconcerting to have a total stranger strike up a conversation while waiting in line. That just doesn't happen in NYC.

It's hilarious to watch the Mouse as he tries to fathom the insanity of Ohio State football fans, something that even some denizens of the Capitol city can't understand either. But the artwork and layouts are masterful. Rich captures the serenity of Goodale Park, the bustling traffic of High Street with equal ease. 

CMGW isn't a gag a day strip but there is humor in it, especially when Rich shows some of the conversations with the Mouse's roommate, Max (another talented artist). There may not be any guffaws but there is always a chuckle.

So, read "City Mouse Goes West." Go. Now.
