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.
