    This issue is a great way to add to the silliness that is Bob’s Burgers. For anyone who is already a fan, you can’t pass this one up. For anyone who wants to become a fan, these are three stories that will surely keep you entertained. The Belcher family as a whole is something we all need more of. Read Full Review

    All in all, Bob's Burgers issue nine was great. I think that adding 'Tina's Island' as part of Tina's Erotic Friend Fiction was clever and witty. Not to mention the fact that 'The Why Files' was indeed 'meta' for the comic book industry as a whole. And the art and poetry for Gene-As Touch was impressive. I suggest the buy if you want more from the cast of Bob's Burgers. Read Full Review

    I love the Bobs burgers comic, and this issue is no exception. I love the short story that parodies Gilligan’s Island, and how ridiculous the conceit is that nobody tried to patch the wrecked boat, but could come up with a billion different ways to power a HAM radio from items scavenged on a deserted island. This story relies more on the characters and their abilities, because the radio (created by The Professor Jimmy Jr) is powered by dance. That’s right- suck it Gilligan and company- you never tried to power your radio with hip-shakin’ toe-tappin’ sweet dance moves! The second story, which is part two of the X-Files parody story, focuses on Louise and Rudy trying to hunt down the person or thing who abducts egg salad sandwiches and leaves them with a bite taken out of them and a strange mark left on them on top of the playground slide. The tone really felt like it was taking it’s X-Files source material seriously, and I really like that. Plus it’s actually just a story being written by Tina and read by Gene and Louise, so there is a lot of fun moments where the story breaks to go back to the Belcher kids and their reactions to what’s happening in the story. It was a lot of fun, and ended abruptly, so it fit the framework of an “erotic friend fiction” story written by a young person without a firm grasp of narrative. The final story is the rhymey-rhymes that could someday be songs, which is where the deep, DEEP well of Gene’s musical comedy is plumbed for some serious gold. And in this instance, it’s liquid gold- CHEESE! It’s the story of Midas, but set in the Bob’s Burger-verse, and where Gene can turn anything to cheese with a touch. The story is ridiculous, but the art and rhyme scheme is really, really fun and it ends up being my favorite short story of the issue. This book is out in trade for the original miniseries, and I think the first ongoing trade is out as well, so I definitely recommend checking this book out. Also the TV show,
