Gaboury Island: The Wonder Years By Edward J Grug III

The early strips starring the monster of Gaboury Island. Lot's of short stories in which the characters developed.

Kyle Baddeley's Review of Gaboury Island: The Wonder Years
Beautiful line work and a confident use of colour invite the reader to delve further into Grug's world.
Gaboury Island is somewhat reminiscent of Jeff Smith's Bone, it conjures up an odd but fairly consistent fantasy world and lets its characters roam across it. ... read it now!


Jessica McLeod's Review of Gaboury Island: The Wonder Years
I wish I lived on Gaboury Island.
It's populated by monsters. Presumably there are adults about, but Grug's comic focuses on the kids of the island- their little adventures, their day-to-day interactions, and their moments of connection.

Writing a comic about monsters has showcased one of Grug's strongest points as a comics artist: his character design. From the tiny, pink, fanged George to the enormous, bearded Elizabeth, these characters are a pleasure to discover. The deliberately flat, bright colours give the comic a childlike simplicity which is very satisfying.

The comics have Grug's unmistakable flavour to them, relying less on punchlines and more on character development and gentle (and sometimes delightfully silly) humour. This is definitely some of Grug's best work, and I find myself looking forward to each new strip with great pleasure. ... read it now!
