REVIEW: Stray Dogs: Dog Days #2

Book Title: Stray Dogs: Dog Days #2

Book Description: In early 2021 the creative team of Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner gave us one of the biggest new titles of the year with Stray Dogs. It was such a hit they got the band back together to give us more Stray Dogs goodness. This title was called Stray Dogs: Dog Days. In Stray Dogs: Dog Days #1, we got to know Killer, Gucci, Aldo, Other Henry, Imogene, and Roxanne in a collection of short stories about life before the Master’s house. We also learned how the Master found them and their original owners. Stray Dogs: Dog Days #2 rounds out the group as we learn more about Henry, Sophie, Rusty, Earl, and Victor. We also get to see a glimpse of what the final outcome was for this series.

Summary

Stray Dogs: Dog Days #1 was intense. The second issue came along and said “Hold my beer”. In this wave of short stories we get action, connections to previous owners, and vindication.

The character development in this issue was taken to a whole new level with new and old characters. We get to see exactly why Earl was so fiercely loyal. I loved watching Duke with the Master.

The cover conveys how terrifying the Master is. To me what’s truly terrifying is how easily something like this could happen in reality. As we saw in Henry’s story, interaction isn’t required to become a target. 

I urge you to please be mindful of your surroundings. Also please keep in mind the amount of information about yourself you are giving a total stranger. This person could be checking off boxes on a list for potential victims. 

Through all seven books the interior artwork pulled the reader in and dared them to escape. There have been few titles that pulled that off with such consistency. I liked the tip of the cap to “Good Boy” on the treats.

As a geek on a budget I would highly recommend anything Stray Dogs to anyone that likes thrillers. I would advise getting the TPB of the original series and reading it first. It was such a hit that even with four additional trips to the printers for the first issue you’ll be looking at paying collector prices for the individual issues.

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.
