Reviews Comments: Housepets Housepets whole series review by Ibn Fadlan

A recently found comic, it is an extremely interesting one. The plot is for the most part compelling, involving at its most basic level sapient pets dealing with day to day life, and at a deeper level the game between Kitsune, Tarot (Dragon) and Pete, which seems to affect every characters life in an as of yet unseen way. The only issue I have found has been what appear to be holes in the story. Not missing information or bad plot points, but spots where it seems at least to me there should be more story, as if a strip was lost. A prime example of this is when King first meets Fox and Bino, where it feels something was left out. The characters are endearing, Peanut and Grape especially so due to their complext relationship and though the other chacters seemed flat at first, my intrest in them has grown as their backstory has filled in, Sasha's, King's and Fido's being the most apparent so far. The jokes are for the most part funny, though if your humor is more towards being cynical or dark, the comic will seem simple. The author also has a self imposed PG rating, at least as far as TV Tropes has let me know, and though some of the more relationship oriented stories suffer slightly from this, it keeps the comic on a more lighthearted tone, something I at least approve of. It is a furry comic, though I am still confused the importance many readers still attach to the appearance of a character, not knowing why that of all things matters, and it will turn away many who find this type of art style abhorrent for the above peculiar reason. Other than that it is a fun and interesting read, and I heartily recommend it.
