Oliver and his crack team cook up the perfect routine full of distractions, misdirections, and red herrings to distract the guards and stage their prison break.

    Kennel Block Blues #2 ends on yet another cliffhanger that will make things very interesting for the kennel prisoners. The creative team continues to present a very playful and funny prison drama, parodying the genre in all the right ways so far. Switching Olivers fantasy sequences to more morose images was rather unexpected but definitely works with the ante going up and the action moving forward in this issue. Read Full Review

    Whatever the matter is with Ollie is beyond me. His daydreams were nice in the first issue, but prison can change a man (you can’t tell, but I’m squinting while nodding my head up and down). I hope we get to know exactly what is going on in his head that makes him think like this, because I am way past curious at this point. Sugar seems to think them not escaping is Pickles’ fault (that’s the head cat). I believe it. I’m looking forward to some kind of showdown next issue. Keep reading to see what these angry inmates will get themselves into next! Read Full Review

    Kennel Block Blues #2 may not have been as impressive as the opening issue, but it continued to move the story forward at an engaging manner. It also left us with a lot to look forward to, as despite losing some of its charm, there would be more than enough to warrant a return next time around. Read Full Review

    A prison drama with anthropomorphic animals is a solid, if unrevolutionary, fare for a comic, but for better or worse Ferrier clearly has something more ambitious in mind. The issue ends with a new wrinkle to the prison's increasingly bizarre mythology (which appears to tie together the hallucinations with the other weirdness of the Kennel) that promises big things to come. With two issues to go I sincerely hope Ferrier has a good plan of how to finish and tie everything together, but even if he does succeed in this monumental task, it may be too late to save what is an increasingly hard to follow story.
