Comic Genius – Bob’s Burgers – Run it through the garden and pin a rose on!!!
(diner talk for add lettuce, tomato and onions on your burger) Vocab key at end!
Bob’s Burgers has been on FOX since 2011 and is going strong with season 6 starting 27 September, 2015. Bob’s Burgers is all ’bout the ‘regular’ Belcher family (Bob and Linda, Gene, Tina and Louise) and how they deal with campers, check the ice, work with Indiana Jones, manage chuds and work their customer service! If you like off color humor or strange behavior that makes you smile when your grown-up mind doesn’t want to – this is the comic and show for you. Bob owns a restaurant that serves, well… hamburgers that apparently are uber delicious yet customers are drawn to another restaurant – despite Bob’s burgers being better than a bowl of red, bucket of cold mud, blue-plate special or bossy in a bowl!!! So if you want a cryin’ Johnny on wheels, a hockey puck drug through Wisconsin on a rail or just 2 cows made to cry with wings – apparently this is the place to go!
SDCC and Fox are bringing Bob’s Burgers to a Comic-Con panel July 10th at 4pm this year in San Diego! If you happen to be lucky enough to be at Comic-Con 2015 – head out to the panel – it’s gonna be a smash! If you come, tho, make sure to bring some hounds on an island, GAC Tommies, birds in a nest, bun pups, chicks on a raft, cops and robbers, a deadeye, Jack Benny, Betty Ford or a radio sandwich ’cause I’m positive they won’t be serving food during the panel!
Dynamite Entertainment publishes this interesting gem with little blurbs of Bob – small comic stories within the comic book – brilliant! Maybe next issue they’ll beef it up with some staff escapades and customer shenanigans with bloodhounds in the hay, a bow-wow with whistleberries and Bronx vanilla, some hounds on an island or a mousetrap on a rail! It keeps your interest, provides short bursts of giggles and is a clever way of making a burger place seem more interesting than flipping, cleaning, selling and eating really is! Whether you like hockey pucks painted red, peeled off the wall, chewed with fine breath or with a rose pinned on it topped with some dog soup – take a peek. Life out of the restaurant is just as interesting as inside! It’s a tough job, but Bob’s Burgers artists and writers are magnificently creative!!!
Check out the new season in September and the new comic this week! Not a big fan of Stewie humor? May not be your cup o’ joe? It’s uber funny to those who get Seth MacFarlane – keep an open mind! (example: last panel of comic is son Gene on the toilet… pooping) What’s really funny, tho, is that most of the comic appears out of the restaurant, not in it! Luv the surfacing costumes at comicons from Bob’s Burgers – lots of Gene, Tina and Louise! Only one Bob cosplay has been sighted so far, tho, at Planet Comicon 2015.
Comic Dynamite gives this #1 issue a 4 burger plate out of 5 – for creative condiments and making the burger and fries life flippin’ funny!
