Against all odds, he's making something of himself! Rocky's autobiographical strip grows in popularity by leaps and bonds, and he even gets himself a graphic novel out of it. And yet he's still (for the most part) a miserable, screwed-up son of a bitch, as the second English-language collection of Martin Kellerman's gut-bustingly hilarious, hugely successful daily strip dutifully chronicles.

To start things off, Rocky manages to wheedle himself a free trip to New York as a reporter covering a gaming convention; a glutton for punishment, he looks up the girl he knocked up in the first volume...and gets a big surprise!

Also: Rocky's temporary roommate Klaus builds himself a "lovers' bunk," with catastrophic results; Rocky's buddy Manny becomes a daddy; Rocky tries to become rich by taping a reality show starring his pals only to discover that their lives are, in fact, boring beyond belief. Rocky scores a new girlfriend and, against the advice of everyone (including himself), immediately takes her on a month-long vacation to Cuba; cartoonin' superstar Rocky goes on a book-signing tour of Norway; plus how to deal with women who talk baby talk in bed, the annoyance of thrift-shop humor, wiggers, barbecues, and lots and lots of strips in which the characters sit around and bullshit about girls, advertising, their jobs, movies, television, comics-basically, the whole ball of wax-like pottymouthed animal-headed Seinfelds.

"Rocky is what an American newspaper comic might look like if the American newspaper comics page didn't suck."
"This collection of strips is a laugh riot, full of moments that will instantly ring true to anyone who's ever been 23 and desperate for affection."

It's difficult not to feel a real human connection with this cartoon dog. -- Calvin Reid, Heidi MacDonald, and Douglas Wolk
It s difficult not to feel a real human connection with this cartoon dog. (Publishers Weekly)
Although aiming at twenty-somethings also interested in getting laid, getting wasted and getting rich, Kellerman nonetheless manages to move beyond the ever-fertile grounds of the battle of the sexes, bodily functions and morning-after guilt-trips to produce a lot of work that is truly fresh, funny and uniquely personal.
