    1. The Conditions on the Ground: Strangely FascinatingUnfortunately, my library could not be convinced to order this collection of Kevin Hooyman’s entire, previously self-published (I think) comic-book series Conditions on the Ground. Did the title sound too dopey to them? I will never know, but both David and Mike rave about this book, so I had to bite the bullet and actually buy it – despite the fact that I had never even heard of Hooyman before reading their reviews. What can I say, isn’t [...]


    2. I really, really liked this collection of the ten issues of Hooyman's individual comics by the same name. They really made me smile a lot. I read this book in part because of Mike's great and enthusiastic review that especially notices Hooyman's use of speech bubble construction. How often do you see a review (or comic, for that matter) highlighting speech bubbles as a cool and funny thing? But he's right: They seem to emanate out of speakers' mouths, never speaking to us, but only to each other [...]


    3. I love the way Hooyman's speech balloons come from all the way inside his characters' mouths, like clouds of pot smoke, or like they're speaking from their innermost hearts. I love the way they never speak to the reader, only to each other, or themselves. I love his world of cryptids and hippies, wendigos and Winnebagos, where everyone is a seeker, but no one is a striver. I love Kevin Hooyman's work, and this extraordinary book.



    4. I was totally unaware of Hooyman before reading this collection, so I went in with no expectations. He creates a strange little world that fluctuates between ordinary scenes of people driving, talking on cell phones, hanging out on porches, etc. to giant hairy beasts traipsing through forest-like environs or rowing boats in not-quite recognizable swampish lands. Sometimes the real and unreal are combined. The only steadfast rule is dialogue. Sometimes the people/creatures are talking to themselv [...]


    5. Charmingly strange existential cartoon vignettes featuring a mixture of people, bigfoot-type things, and animals, describe a journey of contemplation of the self and the human predicament.Hooyman's drawing isn't perfect. It's better than that. It's scratchy and invitingly sweet. I can't describe it to the full extent because the small stories are more feelings than plots. If you're up for something a little bizarre but wonderful, this could be for you.


    6. Stoner paradise. NOT stoner heaven (don't get the two confused). Everything a stoner needs is present, but they cannot live here forever.



    7. Love this collection of issues from Hooyman. Very mythical, trippy and fantastical. A series of illustrations in which man questions himself and the idea of being alive.


    8. OK. bad art. good insightsoner humor with a few hilarious bits mixed in.10% of this book was totally amazeballs. the other 90% was….t good.
