The forest is full of danger . . . but help is here. Meet Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy, improbable pals who use their powers--laser vision and an unrelenting sense of optimism--to fight the forces of evil. Join the dynamic duo as they battle aliens, a mutant fish-bear, a cyborg porcupine, and a mechanical squirrel, learning along the way that looking on the bright side might be just as powerful as shooting a laser.

Get ready for hilarious, action-packed, laser-powered adventures written and drawn by Doug Savage, creator of the popular comic Savage Chickens. This is Savage's first graphic novel.

In this absurdly silly, episodic graphic novel, Laser Moose (literally a moose that can shoot lasers from its eyes), and his friend Rabbit Boy go through a series of misadventures in their woodland home. Neither seeks out trouble, but when aliens come calling, and bears turn into mutant aquabears from toxic waste, you can't really avoid it, and, both feel compelled to address the matter anyways. Laser Moose has a corny cop-type personality, seeing evil behind every tree, always being vigilant, and wanting to face it head on, while his little white friend has a much more friendly attitude, wanting to see the best in others, and ends up helping them. Together, their quirks make for good buddy-buddy stories. The random nature of the content, the witty dialogue, and the simple art with its over-the-top actions, will have kids in fits. Savage hints at some history between Laser Moose and his nemesis, Cyborcupine, but as we do not receive an introduction to the characters, or further explanation, it is unclear whether we will learn about it. At the end of the volume, the author includes a neat educational episode on lasers with a prompt for kids to try out a small experiment.

Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy: Disco Fever – I don’t often laugh aloud while reading. I usually give the typical “air out of my nostrils snort” when I read something amusing. The second installment in the Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy series had me giggling to myself. Follow Laser Moose, Rabbit Boy, and a wolf named Gus as they battle against the diabolical Cyborgupine. (Naturally, their nemesis is a cyborg porcupine. It’s very serious stuff.) Doug Savage’s comedic timing is perfect for kids and adults. It’s a blast to read. If you enjoy Mo Willems and any of his books, I think you’ll love this graphic novel series.

More excellent silly fun.

Silly and fun.

Laser Moose sees danger everywhere, all the time. And he is quick to spring into action. Though he causes plenty of accidental damage along the way, he ultimately ends up protecting the forest from evil with the help of his good-natured partner, Rabbit Boy.

"Do you ever get tired of watching out for danger, Laser Moose?"
"Do you think danger ever gets tired of being dangerous?"

I read this first in our household, and then desperately wished I'd read it aloud at storytime instead, so my son and I got to crack up together. But how could I have known it would be so good?! He ended up loving it as much as I did. The friendship between Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy is priceless. The Aqua-Bee-Bear is terrifying. Frank the deer carrying his leg around is macabre but hilarious. I'm not sure what we'll do when we have to give back the library copy, because if we only buy one, we'll be stealing it from each other.

It's the kind of book that if you don't think it's funny, you'll probably think it's really dumb, but good people can disagree. :)

This hilarious comic made my day. A trigger-happy Laser Moose is always on the look-out for forest danger, while the good-natured Rabbit Boy takes refuge in Moose's antlers. What more could you ask for? The tale is broken up into four short stories which each present a separate scenario where our two heroes defend the forest from potentially dangerous and destructive creatures including a mutant fish-bear. A comic to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

"What a beautiful day!"

"Beautiful days are the worst."

"What!?!"

"You have to be extra-focused on looking for evil when it's a beautiful day. Beautiful days can trick you into thinking that everything's fine and that evil couldn't possibly exist on such a sunny, happy, wonderful, beautiful day . . . But evil does exist, and we must be ready for the danger."

"Do you ever get tired of watching out for danger, Laser Moose?"

"Do you think danger ever gets tired of being dangerous?"
