About the Author
Alex Graham is a painter and cartoonist from Denver, Colorado, currently residing in Seattle.
Reviews
Dog Biscuits is a foundational text of what we can call pandemic comics, COVID comics, or quarantine comics. It reads strangely familiar in its most vital moments.-- "Pop Matters"
Dog Biscuits deftly shows the complexity and dynamics of the current moment, but with enough substance that it should prove a timeless testament to the complexity of living in uncontrollable times. As if there's any other kind.-- "Broken Frontier"
Dog Biscuits was, for me, the best piece of media produced by anybody in 2020. Alex really stepped up to the plate with this thing and had all of us that were tuned-in on the edge of our seats. Gussy and Rosie's doomed romance felt realer than any bullshit in the 'real world'.--Simon Hanselmann
Many artists re-channeled their creativity during the Covid-related lockdowns, but few managed it with as much fiery elan and grace as Graham.-- "Publishers Weekly Starred Review"
A love triangle in Seattle over the summer of 2020 reveals the intersection and impact of social media, woke culture, art, commerce, politics, and gender and class dynamics. ... Graham has created an occasionally scathing yet perceptive portrait of an especially fraught period in American history.-- "Library Journal Starred Review"
While the main characters may be drawn as animals, they are painfully, imperfectly human. They may frustrate and annoy you. However, if you give them a chance, they'll bring you to a resolution that is certainly fitting.-- "New York Journal of Books"
Graham's "pandemic epic" actually reads even stronger in collected form than it did in daily single-page doses. The lockdown may be over, but this story nevertheless captures both where and who we are better than any other work in any medium.-- "Four Color Apocalypse"
