I actually did not realise I knew this artist before but while reading this I realised that I knew so many of the strips which was not very good. (I stated several times before that I do prefer if these online arts to a book have more new content than what was previously posted online). Which is actually rather strange since I could not find a media where I would be following the artist. And Honestly, I maybe chuckled once while reading this, very disappointed. This book did not seem to have a theme, something to tie the strips together. So, it was a bit content dump. While I can understand that some of the comics were not my kind of humour but sometimes I even struggled to see what was supposed to be funny there. In the end, I was mostly skimming through since I did not want to DNF this one.

    Some oft-kilter, 4 panel comics that may make you smile. There's nothing earth shattering here but I did find some humor. This is probably for a teen or older audience. There is some cursing and adult themes. The comics mainly revolve around a reoccurring cast of a robot, a dog, the Grim Reaper, a slutty witch (She refers to herself as such), a gay couple, and a kid ghost.

    I really enjoyed this! I'm not usually a huge graphic novel fan but I do enjoy short panel comics so I thought I'd give this a go. Specifically, I really enjoy the comics by these creators. I've been following them on Instagram for a while and I enjoy their content. This collection was really fun. I particularly enjoyed the slutty witch and sentient robot panels, I'd love more of them. The slutty witch is my spirit animal! The art style is simple but the comedy is great. Overall, I thoroughly enjo I really enjoyed this!

Whether you’re single, in a relationship, pining over someone, or just feeling dead inside, Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich’s War and Peas: Funny Comics for Dirty Lovers is the romantic humor for people who find reasons to laugh in the dark. Maybe you’ll find yourself in the witch or the vampire she’s dating. Maybe you’ll relate to a robot’s unrequited love for its creator. Maybe you’re just a ghost looking for a purpose and a group to hang out with. Or maybe you’re Death itself, making the most of the afterlife. Presented through fantastical characters of the living and the dead, this comic book will surely melt your heart into giggles. My favorite stories in this whole comic are those about Bob and Bob. They’re so adorable and the twists in their scenes are so swoon-worthy! I’m giving this a star less because some of the panels in the first few pages were a bit bland. But things only got better as I went through the pages. I recommend this fun read!

    I've never seen the webcomic, so these comics were all completely new to me. Despite the subtitle, they aren't all that raunchy. There are only a few that wouldn't be appropriate for younger readers (most teens have probably seen worse, anyway). I enjoyed some of the recurring characters such as the slutty witch, the two Bobs, the little ghost boy, and the robot. None of the comics were laugh-out-loud funny (at least, not in my opinion), but they are amusing.

    This was hilarious! I found myself laughing so hard at some of the comics in here! It’s a fun and sometimes morbid tromp into humanity and it was awesome. The only reason why it isn’t a full five stars is because of all the suicide jokes which could be deemed harmful to some people. This contains a lot of dark humor, so if that isn’t your sort of thing then I wouldn’t recommend it to you.

The single page comics are in 4 panel format, with many recurring characters (Death shows up quite often, for example). The humor is ever so slightly off-kilter and is surreal with elements of magical realism, nerd culture, absurdism, and irony. About half of them elicited a smile or giggle from me. This would be a good selection for current fans of the authors' work online, or for fans of webcomic style 4 panel art in general. It's a very fast read with appealing quirky art with a modern (somewhat nihilist) aesthetic. Three and a half stars. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

    I enjoyed these comics so much - these made me laugh a lot. The humor in them is a little dark and twisted mixed with a little nerdy and feminism things and I absolutely love it! I would highly recommend it for anyone with a dark sense of humor - they won't be dissappointed!

    I received an arc of this book via NetGalley. Some of this was super funny and some of it was kinda meh but overall it was enjoyable! I especially liked the use of recurring characters spread out through the comics. Would recommend if you have a darker/drier sense of humor.

    If you familiar with the web comic War and Peas, then you know the humor here, a very dark, oddly funny four panels, with the kicker in the second and last panel. The main characters are Death, a witch, a dog, a robot and ghost. There are a few others, but those appear to be the ones used the most often. I didn't find myself laughing out loud to any, though I did find them amusing. It is the sort of book you would give as a joke, to people with the same dark humor as the authors.

    Funny, absurd and dark humor in a web comic cartoons style. Very light for sure but it had me laughing a couple of time so no waste. Small piece of entertainment! Enjoyable!

So it was really nice to read more than a comic every few weeks.  There is no cohesive plot through the comics. So reading straight through the collection is not necessary. You can read this any way that you like. You can skip to all the Death comics and just enjoy Death doing what Death does (I may slightly promote this way of reading since the comics with Death were the ones that made me laugh the most). I did laugh out loud multiple times while reading, which hurt since I have this weird cold. This book was worth that pain. Some of the jokes were clever, others were more subtle. There was a sort of joke for everyone. Other comic collections I have read recently focused more on fart jokes or low brow humor, there wasn't as much variety. So I have to appreciate that the jokes here ranged and didn't become repetitive.  Slutty Witch is amusing, but I am not sure why she is slutty. I first saw her in an asexual group, because there is a comic where she says she has no underwear and the guy takes her home to give her a blanket and something hot to drink to prevent a cold. So maybe her name is just silly and has no real bearing on her? I have no idea. I would like to see more of her and find out where the joke goes.

    This silly volume collects the panels of the War and Peas web comic. There are several running themes, my favorite was the skateboarding death who loves his (her?) job. The humor is rather dark. Some jokes are dirty, others slapstick, some are just silly. I found it mildly amusing, neither too great nor too bad.

    Amusing cartoons full of dark humor with several recurring characters whose slowly developing storylines occasionally cross over. In addition to Slutty Witch and the Grim Reaper on the cover, there are the seemingly immortal gay couple Bob and Bob, the very mortal Penny and her husband, the professor and her sentient robot, Good Boy the dog, and Gary the boy ghost. Worth a look if your taste in humor is a bit twisted.

    I'm what you'd call a "strict reviewer" and I rarely give out five star reviews, but when I turned the last e-page there were no doubts about how I'd rate this collection.

A few comics are split on two separate pages. The effect of these comics is great, because you have to turn the page to reach the "punchline". The art style is minimalistic, but pretty and not at all morbid or vulgar. The point isn't to rouse disgust or be explicit even when the humor takes a darker turn. At first the comics can seem to not have much to do with each other, but there is a narration to be found. The same characters appear throughout the collection. My personal favorites of the reoccurring characters are the grim reaper, Bob & Bob and the slutty witch (& her vampire boyfriend), but the little ghost, the first sentient robot & the professor, and the dog follow close behind. As for the humor, it's absurd. The supernatural both are and aren't normalized, animals think just like humans and everyone is simultaneously smart and stupid. It's socially critical and plays with our expectations and stereotypes, often taking the joke in an unexpected - often a little dark - direction. I wouldn't describe my own humor as a really dark or twisted one, but I enjoyed the book anyway. It's so absurd, but the art style softens the effect. I have a hard time to characterize any of the characters as "evil" or "bad" despite the objectively very bad things they do. And hey, the grim reaper just want to stop working and retire already! Who can't relate to that? I think this book is perfect as a gift or to have out on the side table for your guests to look through if you want to keep them from peering around and wondering when the last time you dusted off the upper shelves was. I warmly recommend (though not for kids)! I received a free e-copy of this comic book in exchange for an honest review.

    /I read this as an arc on NetGalley./ I was reading this comic on Tapas so when I saw there is an arc I had to read their comics again. This is full of dark humor, witches, death, doggos. This isn't for everyone and not all will find this funny. But for all readers out there with a dark sense of humor, this is the book for you. But at the same time, some of the topics are drawn from everyday life and hard-hitting.

It shows a very specific dark humour that might be a trigger for some people. Fortunately, I'm living for this kind of humour and that's why I really enjoyed this read. I've read some of the webcomic before so I knew what to expect and it didn't fail me. Readers encounter several different characters (such as a cute little ghost, grim reaper, slutty witch etc.) and follow their shenanigens. My personal favorite was and still is grim reaper but I enjoyed others just as much. Funny, dark and absurd. The drawing style is very simple yet charming in its own way. It lets readers focus on punchlines and enjoy the comedy aspect. I'd strongly recommend checking this out if you are fond of dark and twisted humour! 4.5/5*

    A collection of four-panel gag comics which at first appear to stand alone, but gradually stitch together into something more. Not only do characters such as the first sentient robot, the dog who's tired of being a good boy, the grim reaper and the slutty witch recur, but their next appearance will build on the punchline of their previous one, and occasionally they even cross over.

Who knew the mania for shared universes would run so far? And it is definitely something closer to that than the usual comic strip gang structure. Also, they're very funny, or at least I thought so, certainly measured by the metric of how many you want to show the poor sod who's in the room while you're reading them. And there's even one about what to do if they don't agree! Absurdist, wry, often quite dark without being tritely edgy; very much up my street, though as ever with humour it shouldn't need saying that YMMV. (Netgalley ARC)

    This is great for those who are already fans of the War and Peas comics as well as those who love dark humor mixed with nerdy and feminist humor for adults. For those who don't enjoy such humor, this wouldn't be a good fit. The book is a quick read but very fun.

    LOL, LMAO, and ROFLOL. This collection of wonderfully wry comics celebrates everything I love about War and Peas. The grim gallows humor coupled with brightly-colored, endearing illustrations makes for an enjoyable wink at humanity. Thank you,War and Peas, and thank you Andrews McMeel!
