Humans like Morgan, who’s Brush-born and Bubble-raised and fully capable of fending off an Imp attack during her morning jog. She’s got a great routine going—she has a chill day job, she recreationally kills the occasional Imp, then she takes that Imp home for her roommate and BFF, Annie, to transform into drugs as a side hustle. But cracks appear in her tidy life when one of those Imps nearly murders a delivery guy in her apartment, accidentally transforming him into a Brush-powered mutant in the process. And when Morgan’s company launches Huntr, a gig economy app for Imp extermination, she finds herself press-ganged into kicking her stabby side job up to the next level as she battles a parade of monsters and monstrously Brush-turned citizens, from a living hipster beard to a book club hive mind.

    I loved everything about this graphic novel (adapted from a humor podcast). The art is bright and dynamic, the humor is silly and cynical and satirical, the writing is Buffy meets Sorkin meets Portlandia, the gig economy is soul sucking, the characters are more than just their archetypes, and the big corporate commodifying overlords are real. A great scifi satire that pushes all he right buttons for me. **Thanks to the creators, publisher, and Netgalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest I loved everything about this graphic novel (adapted from a humor podcast).

Its based off of a podcast, which I've never listened to, but am now very interested in. The colour palette was so bright, vibrant and fun to look at. It's very action-packed, with a very fast-paced storyline. I found this to be so funny and the humour was right up my alley. There was multiple times where I was laughing out loud. I loved the characters, especially Mitch. He was such a sweetie pie and I wanted to protect him at all costs. Annie was also wonderful, and she had me cackling on numerous occasions. The interactions that these characters had with one another was a lot of fun, and their banter was great. It seemed to leave off on a cliff-hanger, so I am hoping there will be a second installment at some point!

    I enjoyed this book a great deal, and would recommend it to folks who enjoyed other funny, energetic, and at times vulgar comics. I'm thinking of Sex Criminals and Chew in particular, but I know there are plenty more that I'm not familiar with. Speaking of, I'm not familiar with the source material here, a podcast, but this story and vibrant artwork definitely made me want more.

In a futuristic place where mutations exists, Morgan is a monster hunter. With her tags along her super famous ex-boyfriend, her scientific best friend and the pizza delivery guy which happens to also be her best friend's ex-date. Together, they will fight to bring peace to this zombie invaded world. First off, the color palet and the illustrations of this graphic novel really pleased me. Visually, this book is a roller coaster. It is vibrant, dynamic and funky. I liked that it was unpredictable. That the designs grew more and more interesting, never failing to impress me when I turned the page. The shading was well done and overall, each panel was really adequately detailed to be as much a work of art as a great support for the story. 10 out of 10 for that. I also was a huge fan of the comedy/humor thrown in here. I had a smile on my face for the most part and I even laughed out loud a few times, which is rare for me in a book, so even rarer with a graphic novel. It was never too much either, just a great touch of humor sprinkled throughout actions scenes to guarantee a little laugh. If you like the comedy and the vibe that Deadpool has, this one is very similar! I did not really get attached to the characters, but I got attached to their stories and adventures. That is why I did not give this graphic novel a full blown five stars. I know it is always harder to love characters in graphic novels than in actual written books, because you are given less time and less information with or about them. Still, I would have hoped to connect a bit more with them than I actually did. It was still really enjoyable to read about the four main characters, I just would not have cared if one of them would have been hurt, that's all. All in all, this is a unique action-packed graphic novel about a mutated futuristic world. It is full of jokes and delivers a great intrigue to the reader alongside of it. I would recommend it to fans of Nimona or Deadpool since it gives off similar vibes in my opinion. Otherwise, pick up this book if you want to be entertained in a unique post-apocalyptic setting.

Hoooo baby am I ever the intended audience for this! I am an avid Max Fun listener (tuppies unite!), a First Second stan, and a millennial (who does a bunch of typical millennial things but also goofs on millennial things). I was a massive fan of the podcast Bubble and I was so excited to return to this world. This absolutely did not disappoint! The plot moved at a good clip but, as with the podcast, the jokes are really where Bubble shines. There are so many really great clever jokes and a lot of extremely dumb jokes! It was hard not to text my friends about all the funniest parts because that's basically the whole book. The art is incredible! Tony Cliff brings a very classic comics style while still being really dynamic and neither too cute nor too standard. There are jokes layered in every part of this book! In the text (natch) but also in the sound effects and environments and clothing and side characters. A lot of the material is adapted from the first season of Bubble, but there was some new stuff too! And every single bit I could hear in the character's voices that I got to know so well from the podcast. I also really enjoyed the interview at the end between Jordan Morris and Sarah Morgan (the Bubble team) and the McElroy fam (fresh off finishing the third TAZ comic). I haven't read the third installment yet, but I did read the first two TAZ comics (and listen to that arc on the podcast, though I dropped off later) and they all had some incredibly interesting insights into the process of adapting their work. They also made a bunch of goofs which obviously I love. Six of my favorite dinguses in conversation about comics and podcasts!! I'm definitely going to order a copy for myself and I will for sure make sure the comics selector buys this for my library!

I was familiar with the podcast but hadn't listened to it (despite my husband telling me how much I'd enjoy it) and was worried I wouldn't quite get this adaptation. I was wrong! While I did wish for just a little bit more world building, it makes sense to just be thrown into this dystopian gig economy based world. The action starts quick and doesn't let down.

    This was great. I was not familiar with the podcast so I went in blind and was very surprised. The artwork is beautiful with full-color illustrations. The character designs were unique and diverse. I thought the beginning was a little slow (so I read the first 50 or so pages, then forgot about it for 2 weeks before finishing the rest in one sitting), but it definitely picks up. This book made me laugh out loud several times. I loved the characters, the jokes, how it doesn't take itself seriously This was great.

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this graphic novel! In terms of podcasts, while I’ve dabbled outside the non-fiction realm, I really haven’t listened to many fiction series. I did “Welcome to Nightvale” for awhile, I listened to “The Black Tapes” (probably my favorite of the fiction ones I’ve listened to), and I tried out “Limetown”. But overall, it’s gotta be true crime, movies, or books for the topics I wanna listen to. So (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this graphic novel! In terms of podcasts, while I’ve dabbled outside the non-fiction realm, I really haven’t listened to many fiction series. I did “Welcome to Nightvale” for awhile, I listened to “The Black Tapes” (probably my favorite of the fiction ones I’ve listened to), and I tried out “Limetown”. But overall, it’s gotta be true crime, movies, or books for the topics I wanna listen to. So I had never heard of the podcast “Bubble” when I saw that it had been adapted into a graphic novel by Jordan Morris and Sarah Morgan, the creator and a writer for the show itself. While I wasn’t certain about what to expect, the premise was promising and intriguing: a dystopian world, a stunted society that seems perfect, and a dangerous wilderness of creatures that could kill you? That all sounds great. Throw in some humor and it sounds even better. So I gave it a go, because I hoped it would stand on its own two feet, outside of a podcast shadow. And I don’t think that it quite did. That isn’t to say that this is “Welcome to Nightvale” levels of inability to stand on its own. Here is what I liked about “Bubble”: the premise really is a good one. I liked the idea of Fairhaven, a typical city that runs on capitalism and the gig economy, and the people who live there and work within that economy. Satire about the drawbacks and pitfalls of a late stage capitalist society is kind of ripe for the picking, but “Bubble” does it well. Our main character, Morgan, is a woman living in Fairhaven now, but was raised in the surrounding wild area called The Brush, which is inhabited by creatures called Imps that are dangerous and prone to attack humans. Morgan knows how to deal with them, and when an Imp gets into Fairhaven she will kill it and bring it to her roommate Annie who will make it into drugs. Morgan’s company, however, starts up a social media gig app (think Task Rabbit) that will give people the ability to go kill Imps for profit. Throw in a hapless Postmates delivery guy named Mitch who is attacked by an Imp and given powers, and you have some fun main characters who are just trying to get by in a gig economy whose stakes are pretty damn high. I liked Morgan and Annie, and Mitch feels very Chris Pratt in “Parks and Rec”, so he’s pretty charming. And really, the entire idea is fun, especially when they all have to go into the Brush on a mission, involving a mysterious stone and the Brush living father Morgan left behind. SO much potential, right? The problem I had was that “Bubble” never quite explored the potential enough for me. This is a story that really should have some pretty wide and complex world building to it, both inside Fairhaven and outside in The Brush. And we see bits and pieces of both when our main characters are interacting within. But we don’t really have the time to explore backgrounds, histories, or dynamics, as the plot is constantly moving forward. It’s entertaining, it’s quite funny at times, and the characters have lots of fun things to say to each other. But I never really felt like I got a true feel for the setting they are in. And the only character that I feel really got a lot of depth was Morgan, while everyone else, outside of a few hints and tidbits here and there, really kept in static place as the tale went on. There just wasn’t much room to breathe, and I don’t know if that is because that’s how the podcast goes, or if it’s more a limitation when translating the podcast story to a graphic novel. I suppose that I could go listen to the podcast to find out, but the story we have at hand isn’t really compelling enough for me to go and do so. That said, I really liked the art! Tony Cliff has some vibrant color schemes that feel sleek and futuristic, and I enjoyed the character designs as well. The Imps in particular are pretty cool. “Bubble” has its moments and some great ideas. I just think that it could have gone further.

I loved how the author took a story that would normally seem pretty scary and turned it into something hilarious. I also thought that they art style was GORGEOUS. There is corruption, a pansexual main character, nerdy references, and SO MUCH HUMOR. I laughed so much while I was reading this!! I totally recommend this to everyone. Plus, Morgan has the best playlists. 5 stars!! Shoutout to NetGalley for the ARC!

I was intrigued by the headline of being based on a "smash-hit podcast" and what could come out of, but I am thoroughly disappointed.

I had picked this book from the Goodread comics ranking section and let's just say that I'll be more caution about using it in the future. There are sexual jokes scattered continuously throughout of the book by a stereotypically male main character and a pansexual female, which isn't really my cup of tea, seems forced, and seems to be the only way these random people are friends with each other (that and the illegal drugs in the first scene). I also don't find the motivation for the two main characters or why they paired to hunt together to be very believable. For example the male lead switches his job from working at Postmates to risking his life battling monsters because he spontaneously found out he had superpowers that he had yet to even begin to control. And as far as I read, I don't know why he got those superpowers or why were they making drugs from the dead monster. The beginning of the story is slow to setup. The author also leaves us in the dark about the purpose of the stone for a really long time, and for most of the time it has left me having no idea what was going on and what the motivation of the boss was. This made it both boring and confusing. In the end, I didn't quite understand its commentary about social media and the gig economy.

Because sometimes monsters are totally familiar. {Thank you First Second for the advanced copy; all thoughts are my own}

The colors are fun. When they are in the Bubble everything looks familiar. When they are outside the Bubble things are just different enough that it really sells the concept of alien world. It will definitely be on my reread list.

    A little bit hokey, a whole lot of funny, and some surprisingly good character arcs! Morris and Co have created a fantastic rendition of their story that will suck you in and hold you hostage as you go a long for the ride. With great characters, timely humor, and a relentless ribbing of the worst that millennials have to offer you will want to read this comic!

    I am a huge Jordan Morris fan, and listened to bubble as a podcast when it came out. when I got there book I forgot most of the podcast which was great, and felt the book changed enough but kept the good stuff. I could hear Jordan's voice come through and the art was astounding and brought to life the characters and places so we'll. I really enjoyed it and devoured it in two days.

    I went into this having no idea what to expect and I laughed so many times! Super fun in a way that feels a lot like Buffy and the art is bright and super immersive, I really liked some of the full page spreads. Just what I needed!

    Very awesome! But I expect quality when it comes to anything First Second publishes - and I've rarely (if ever?) been disappointed. This is a highly original, beautifully illustrated, and intensely enjoyable graphic novel. Very awesome!
