2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By lady detective on Feb. 21 2004
Format: Paperback
good-bye, chunky rice is a short little cutie of a comic & it carries some sweet poignancy about friendship & finding a place in the world, but i didn't find it quite as profound as some of the other reviewers.
i think some of the flashbacks were a bit off-putting as in 'wait, where are we now?" & although chunky rice was certainly a darling little character- what was he searching for? i longed for a bit more depth.
warning! this little book took me under 20 minutes to read- so i recommend getting it from the library or borrowing it from a friend first. if you love it (and most of the reviewers really did), then buy it. it's pretty pricey for such a quickie read.

Craig is a master beyond his years. Moi, j'chapeau l'mec.
A book about the deep feelings and longings that are possible in the world of existence, told through a mythologized melange of lumpy dumpy bumpy people, "funny animals", a neurotic bird, motown, moments of passion, clinking clunking bottles, interpersonal and intrapersonal ignorance and discovery.
A very rich comic experience, sure to capivate those who already know the comics universe is bigger than many think, and probably a safe bet first foray for those who are looking to start exploring that universe.
I bought this at the Knockabout stall at the Angouleme (France) comics festival in January of 2000. But you don't have to go to France. If it will help you make the decision to buy this book, then think of buying this book via Amazon as possessing the magic and mystery of going to France. There; did that work?

Format: Paperback
You know that feeling when you see something for the first time, and it perfectly defines an undefinable emotion? Like the first time you heard Pink Floyd's "Great Gig in the Sky?"
Same thing here. This book manages to completely encapsulate that raw loss---of friends, of family, of innocence, of whatever while going to seek your fortune. I don't want to sound corny, but it's like an elegy to what you leave behind in order to get to your future.
Glorious glorious book. Go read it. Now.

Format: Paperback
A potent story to pass around...skirts the edge of the maudlin, but is rescued by the author's keen sensibilities. Reinvigorates the American graphic novel.

Format: Paperback
This stunning comic was so good I read it in one sitting (no breaks) and even cried at the end. It would make an excellent gift for a friend or a traveller (graduates!). I highly, highly recommend Chunky. It was breathtaking. I couldn't share it fast enough.

This is simply the best piece of comic-art I have read in years, and each time I re-read it, I find more to enjoy. Do yourself a favor and order at least two of them, because you'll really feel the need to share this one! I have already given away a dozen copies of this wonderful book, and I recommend it without reservation to anyone, especially if they never read comics.
