In this hilarious graphic novel, the roles of cats and humans are reversed, putting humanoid felines in charge of tiny, dimwitted little man-pets. Manfried is a stray taken in by Steve Catson, a slacker with a dead-end job and nonexistent love life. Soon Manfried becomes the Garfield to Steve's Jon Arbuckle: lazy, selfish, and sometimes maddening in his weird human behavior. Yet the pair depends on each other to get through life's troubles. When Manfried runs away, Steve musters his meager resources to find his best man-friend and bring him home safe. Ultimately, both Steve and Manfried realize they're capable of so much more than they though more

    Manfried the Man is a delightfully weird graphic novel with charming art and an engaging story that will be relatable to anyone trying to find their way as a young adult, and a tale of pet ownership that’s both heartbreaking and heart-warming in equal measure. Major and Bastow do a great job building a cast of characters and a community around the cute, troublesome men of Atlanta that could easily be revisited time and again. There’s something in this story that can resonate with everyone - even if you’re more of a dog person. Read Full Review
