I received a copy of Business Cat: Hostile Takeover through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I should probably preface this review by saying that I’m a huge fan of Business Cat. I think the comics are hilarious, and I’ve been reading them here and there online as I’ve been able to.
Business Cat is written and drawn by Tom Fonder. You can find the comics online, or you could do what I mainly do, which is wait for them to come out in book form and binge them all. While also keeping your eye open for the online comics. Why not?
The basic premise, on the off chance that you don’t know, is that the CEO of a company is well…he’s a cat. More accurately, a cat head on a human body. The end result is…interesting. And it leaves a lot of room for office shenanigans. Hence the entire premise for some insane (but fun) plots.
Business Cat is really a perfect series for anybody that enjoys humor like this, and honestly for cat owners as well. We know some of Business Cat’s behavior all too well, and sometimes it’s a real treat to see it shoved into a different perspective or situation.
It’s been a while since I was able to sit down and read through an entire plot arc for Business Cat, so this volume was exactly what I’ve been hoping for. It was over one hundred pages of comics all surrounding the same core plot. The series itself has been a lot of fun, but it was also nice to have something a bit more that I could sink my teeth into.
This was a really fun book with lots of hilarious moments. I’m not going to tell you my favorite moment (and yes, I absolutely do have a favorite), because it’d be a major spoiler. But I will say that I nearly cried laughing at that point. So consider yourselves warned!
