    This book is absolutely darling. If you're a Bendy and the Ink Machine fan and you love the cute little Bendy cartoons on YouTube, you need to read this book. It takes all the charm and fun of those cartoons and puts them into comic form. Plus, all of the characters from the cartoons get time to shine. The book is framed as an archive collection of the Bendy comics that Joey Drew had created alongside the cartoons. It gives the existence of the comics a context in the history of Joey Drew Studios This book is absolutely darling. If you're a Bendy and the Ink Machine fan and you love the cute little Bendy cartoons on YouTube, you need to read this book. It takes all the charm and fun of those cartoons and puts them into comic form. Plus, all of the characters from the cartoons get time to shine. The book is framed as an archive collection of the Bendy comics that Joey Drew had created alongside the cartoons. It gives the existence of the comics a context in the history of Joey Drew Studios, as well as hinting at upcoming Bendy material unassociated with Joey Drew, as the foreword and afterward say that Nathan Arch (CEO of Archgate Films) purchased the rights to Bendy from Joey Drew after the studio closed. This serves as additional lore for game fans, though it doesn't have any bearing on the comics themselves, which can be read without needing to have played the games or to have watched the cartoons. The book is separated into three parts, the newspaper comic strips, which are generally shorter (1-2 pages); the dime-store comics, which can be around 10 pages long; and the promotional comics, which are generally shorter than the dime-store comics but longer than the newspaper strips. The newspaper comics feel the closest to the Bendy cartoons with their lack of dialogue and short length, but the promotional comics seem to be comic "adaptations" of the Bendy cartoons you see clips of in the game but do not exist fully on YouTube. Both the promotional comics and the dime-store comics have longer storylines and flesh out the characters with dialogue, and it is great to see their personalities developed past the simpler cartoons. If you don't already love Alice Angel, you'll definitely love her here. She is smart, mischievous, and also a sweetheart, and she gets a full dime-store comic focused solely on her. Even Edgar gets a moment for himself, which makes me very happy because he is precious. I don't even need to mention Bendy and Boris, who are the main stars in most of the stories and are, of course, delightful to follow around. The art is absolutely adorable. It's very old-school (like the cartoons), with a ton of energy going into the backgrounds and character expressions. It's mostly black and white, though sometimes it has a yellow tint because the comics themselves are supposed to be an archive of old Bendy comics. I just love everything about this style and how cute the characters are. In conclusion, if you are a Bendy fan (particularly of the cartoon aspects of the game), you need to read this. If you are a fan of that old 30's-40's style of comics/cartoons, you will probably enjoy this without needing to be a Bendy fan. It isn't required to already know Bendy to read these because they are necessarily separate from the game lore. One dime-store comic does directly reference the actual game villains, but it's more of a bonus for fans of the game and you don't need to know who they are to enjoy that comic. All in all, I would highly recommend this.

    What makes this comics collection so valuable is, I believe, because we are able to learn a great deal about the canon cartoon versions of the Bendy and the Ink Machine characters, which until now we have only gotten brief glimpses of in the released shorts. In the actual game, and even the novel written by Adrienne Kress, Bendy is a twisted, ink demon creation that highlights the corruption at Joey Drew Studios, while copies of Alice and Boris are basically tragic victims trapped within the fac What makes this comics collection so valuable is, I believe, because we are able to learn a great deal about the canon cartoon versions of the Bendy and the Ink Machine characters, which until now we have only gotten brief glimpses of in the released shorts. In the actual game, and even the novel written by Adrienne Kress, Bendy is a twisted, ink demon creation that highlights the corruption at Joey Drew Studios, while copies of Alice and Boris are basically tragic victims trapped within the facility. In Crack-Up Comics, we actually see Bendy, Alice, and Boris interacting together as friends. Bendy and Boris work as less-than-successful vaudeville actors. The trio goes on a wide variety of adventures, and each member has a chance to shine and show us their personalities. You even get to enjoy the Butcher Gang of Charley, Barley, and Edgar as antagonists, alongside a number of side characters who fit perfectly into the Great Depression-era world in which the series begins. The arrangement of this book makes it appear like a collection of Bendy comic strips and stories from around the course of a decade, and there is a very skillful, deliberate progression made in the art style and plotlines to reflect it. For instance, from comic strips that mostly lack dialogue and depend wholly on visual gags, the content gradually shifts to full-fledged stories with all the characters (even Boris) talking to each other. I also had to laugh at the notes made here and there referencing other supposed comics--which only added to the feeling of this collection as a genuine gathering of pieces from a much larger body of works. It was a joy to read, while hinting at other, subtler types of world-building lore for the main game (such as the person who reportedly wrote the introduction and was responsible for releasing these comics in one volume).

    This will probably not mean as much to people who aren't fans of the series, but I loved it. The illustrator did a great of capturing the feel and look of different eras of comic history, and I can't help but love anything that includes the punching-Nazis-war-bonds part of the history (at least the better parts of it). It's really interesting to see the way this would tie into the evolution of the characters and the studio within the game. Would it hold up to someone outside?

There probably won't be enough to really snag someone without an interest in the series already, but it won't be because of lack of trying.

    There isn't really much to say about this strange little collection. It's presented as a historical archive of the fictional Joey Drew Studio's comic creations, presenting the "evolution" of Bendy's comics over the years. The strips themselves are harmless enough and good fun, clearly drawn in the style and tone of Popeye and early Disney, but containing some well-hidden dark imagery in some of the panels that brings to mind the video game. Probably one for the fans, but people who enjoy old-styl There isn't really much to say about this strange little collection.

    Back again with another Bendy book. This time, it’s about the in universe works of the Bendy cartoons from Joey Drew Studios. This is done very similarly to the Peanuts and classic newspaper strips without any real plot, zany hijinks and a lot of funny things. It’s fun and cute, and does expand the world and lets us have a stronger grasp of each characters’ personality before they became mutated abominations. But it’s ultimately not needed unless you’re a die hard Bendy fan.

    Ultimately harmless fun, more for the fans who enjoy the cartoons rather than the game.
