I would describe Stray Dogs as 101 Dalmatians meets Se7en or Silence of the Lambs. It’s a thriller that took me by surprise and refused to let go from the very first issue. Over the course of the series we got to see Sophie come into her own as she evolved from a scared princess to a fearless leader. 

Sophie isn’t the only character we see grow in the series. The amount of change we saw in Earl is something to behold.

I can’t say enough about Trish Forstner’s artwork throughout the series. It magically pulls the reader into an animated world where we can understand what dogs are saying to us. 

The thing that impressed me most with this series is how well it came to a conclusion. Far too often we have stories that stumble their way to the finish line after they climax. Not so with Stray Dogs. It finishes strongly in a way that doesn’t feel forced or leaving the reader feel cheated.

As a geek on a budget and a dog lover I was thrilled to go on this journey with Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner. I would strongly urge you to as well.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
