To sum it all up..

But what can I say, I’m a sucker for this era of cartoons.

Posted December 11, 2017 by



So this book is completely unnecessary, and will probably only appeal at first to those who have nostalgia for this franchise. I don’t know how many of us dorks have warm enough feelings about Rocko’s Modern Life to want to see it in comic book form. But what can I say, I’m a sucker for this era of cartoons. I’ve got the show’s theme song stuck in my head two decades later, and when I was reading this comic I could still hear the character’s voices.

The Rocko’s Modern Life #1’s set up is simple enough, Rocko’s out of a job and he has a new roommate. These are pretty basic sitcom tropes, and writer Ryan Ferrier peppers enough bad puns, funny bits, and plot movement to keep us strung along for the issue. What you really sign on for though is to get to spend time with these characters again, in all their glorious neuroticism and weirdness.

You could probably pass on this book and be fine. It’s not like it’s important to have it. But if you want to make another visit to this specific world, then it’s a fun enough trip.
