Second Barkeater Lake book released

Barkeater Lake 2 Book

Corey Pandolph’s, creator of Barkeater Lake, (and not to mention Toby, Robot Satan, Lil’ Spencer’s Adventures AND The Elderberries cartoonist), is releasing a second collection of his Barkeater Lake feature. The new book, due out at the end of this month, is entitled “Escape From Barkeater Lake” and features the second year of Corey’s feature with eight pages of color Sundays. Also included are two pages of “reader-inspired bacon recipes.” The book can be pre-ordered through his web site now. You can also purchase both collections 1 & 2 together at a bundled discount.

I read the first Barkeater Lake book earlier this spring and can easily recommend this feature to just about anyone. My first impression was that the feature was a bit silly, but Corey has created a strong character driven world that is easy to fall into and tag along for the ride. I hadn’t realized how much I had come to like the characters until the end of the book when Delores’ (one of the main characters) father comes to rescue her from from the crazies in the town. I found myself offended at his judgmental attitudes toward the other characters. I knew then that I was a Barkeater Lake fan.

If your not familiar with Barkeater Lake, you can catch it over on gocomics or his website.

Yeah Corey! Barkeater and Toby are two of my all time favorite strips. Actually, I have to say, I LOVE Toby, and yes it’s exactly as creepy as it sounds.
