A Bodacious Book Review!

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

In the spirit of International Literacy Day, which is this week, I thought I’d share a book review I JUST saw of my first Snuffy Smith book collection, The Bodacious Best Of Snuffy Smith.  I apologize, this review is a couple years old, but I just saw it recently for the very first time.  I just discovered a comic strip website and found the review in the site’s archives.  It comes from the wonderful folks at the Comic Strip Of The Day website.  Here is just a portion of the review:

And for your cousin who keeps saying “Git-R-Done!”


I hadn’t read “Snuffy Smith” in forever…but this…strip, now collected in “The Bodacious Best of Snuffy Smith,” is a lot more, well, sweet and funny than I remember.

Snuffy Smith is now kind of what Larry the Cable Guy would be like if Larry the Cable Guy never worked blue.

Whatever the case, John Rose has got a strip going that is full of the sort of affectionate Hee-Haw level country humor and philosophy that ends up on refrigerators and taped near cash registers, and I don’t remember it being like that. 

And, yes, Barney Google puts in an appearance.

You can read the full review at the Comic Strip Of The Day.com website, just search “Snuffy Smith” and it will take you to a Holiday Shopping Tips #1 blog post where they review several comic strip book collections including this one.  I own almost all the books they review in that post!
