Apocalypse bow wow

James Proimos III, illustrated by James Proimos Jnr (a bit suspicious)
Bloomsbury Children’s Books
ISBN: 9781408854983           RRP: $14.99

Two dogs wait patiently in the house for food from their people. They realise, as dinner time passes, something has changed. Outside the world has gone to the dogs – literally. With rumbling tums they soon find the foodmart; and survival is their goal. There is much tongue in cheek in this dystopian comedy, done in graphic novel format with mostly one panel to a page. The best part is on the last page: To be continued. Bound for cult reading status; next up, Apocalypse miaow miaow.
