'Pink Panther, Volume 1' is a series of short gags written and illustrated by lots of talented people. There are 14 stories, including one originally printed in Pink Panther #49 from January, 1978.
Pink Panther was one of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid, and it's great to say these feel just like those. They also include some Inspector Clouseau and Ant and Aardvark stories, but Pink Panther is the primary subject. Pink finds the hammer of Thor and decides to become a superhero with hilarious results. Pink Panther entertains at a child's birthday party and can't seem to make the young child happy. Pink Panther tries to con a restaurant out of a meal by putting a fly in the soup, but the fly ends up eating all the soup. And so on.
For the most part, Pink doesn't talk, but there are a few where Pink does, and those feel weird to me. But the humor rings true from what I remember. The humor is perfectly appropriate for younger readers. The art is great. It's good to have these characters back again.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from American Mythology, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
