GIVEAWAY AND REVIEW OF THE KNIGHT LIFE BY KEITH KNIGHT

 
The Knight Life: "Chivalry Ain't Dead"The Knight Life is a hilariously twisted view of life through the eyes and pen of its creator, community-oriented urban hipster and award-winning cartoonist Keith Knight. The Knight Life deftly blends political insight and neurotic humor in a uniquely fluid and dynamic style, offering a comic strip that's fresh, sharp, topical and funny. Designed for daily newspapers, The Knight Life follows Knight's long-running, 2007 Harvey Award-winning weekly comic strip "The K Chronicles," which appears on salon.com.

An unabashedly provocative political and social satire, The Knight Life's energetic style reminds readers that comics can look funny as well as read funny. The result is accessible yet edgy, compassionate and political-and never preachy. Cartoonist and comic historian R.C. Harvey said, "The Knight Life is undeniably the best new laugh- and thought-provoker on the comics page. Not since Calvin and Hobbes has there been so novel an entertainment in the funnies."
tackles contemporary issues like consumer culture, bacon, the media, race, family and everything else, gently mocking the minutiae of daily life with self-deprecating humor, honesty and goofiness-a combination that's perfect for the comics. And


My Thoughts-

When my parents get the Sunday paper, I enjoy reading the comics. I have never seen the K Chronicles in my local paper. The Knight Life comics were hilarious, witty and sometimes sarcastic.  Here is an example of one of his comics take from the author's website. So if you want a little laughter in your life, get a copy of this funny comic book. You will not be disappointed.
