REVIEW: Sharky Malarkey

Thank you to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for providing me with the ARC

Sharky Malarkey by Megan Dong is probably the funniest series of comic strips I have read in my life. Full disclosure: I was almost in tears in the lunch room at my day job, I was trying so hard not to full on cackle.

I don’t even know how to explain this book but to show two of the comics that had me laughing the most.

This series of comics is random, hilarious, and unapologetic about being alive, and that’s really all I can say other than: Buy this book when it comes out in September. If you like things like Sarah Scribbles, then you should definitely read Sharky Malarkey.

Synopsis: Sharky Malarkey follows the adventures of Bruce, a washed-up shark actor, and a colorful assortment of dysfunctional people, animals, and inanimate objects.

Bruce is equally outlandish and relatable—he’s vain but insecure; hotheaded but cowardly; craves attention but fears intimacy—his over-the-top antics are all too human. Based on Megan Nicole Dong’s popular webcomic, Sketchshark, her debut print collection mines the absurd in everyday life.
