    Book details

We All Have Powers shares life's parenting moments from the perspective of a 30-something man/father/husband/chaos survivor. Together with the savvy, laid back Mom, wild child Moishe, baby Matilda, and a former Julliard student (their cat), Lunarbaboon must navigate the family and social dynamics of everyday life. Ranging from the hilarious (defeating closet monsters with a “stun” blaster that offers surprising facts about bears, Mars, and cats) to the sweet (the gray scale-to color transition out of depression at the touch of a loved one), this collection explores the bonds within a family and all the characters who bring both order and chaos to life. Lunarbaboon’s perfect meld of crabby humor and moments of impactful honesty give these comics a wide range and distinctive voice that’s both comical and sincere.

"These parenting comics will make you have every damn feeling." (Loryn Brantz, BuzzFeed)"Dad's comics nail the hilarity of raising kids today" (Caroline Bologna, The Huffington Post)"...highlights the funny and rewarding side of being a parent." (Joseph Barberio, Working Mother)"Lunarbaboon ...flawlessly illustrates all of life's struggles, joys, and WTF moments that come with being a parent." (Tanvier Peart, CafeMom)“Grady’s comic strips portray life as a dad in a way that is honest and funny and often subversive…and is great reading for parents who need a little perspective and humor about their lives.”   (Jonathan K. Liu, GeekDad)

Review Text

    I loved this!I follow this comic on Facebook and so I was delighted to see that it was available for review on Netgalley. I wasn't disappointed either.This volume of cartoons explores parenting and life. We catch moments of learning, love, and laughter through the relationships of Lunarbaboon and his family, but it isn't all fun and games, there is much humour here, but there are also touching moments of gentle truth and revelations which make the reader pause and reflect because these moments are real and perhaps something every parent faces, or reflects on, or should reflect on.As I read it there were times I laughed out loud but also times when the comic hit close to home, touching something I had thought of myself, such as the passage of time and how as parents we can sometimes take time for granted.The art work here is simple with nice clear drawings which are mostly in shades of black, white and grey. There are the occasional colour pages and these provide a contrast to the rest of the graphics. I do hope future books will be in full colour.The beauty of this comic is the way it explores the bonds within a family through the illustrations. It is a quick read obviously, but one that will make a great gift for friends and family, and also a good book for the coffee table. It is also the kind of book that you can glance through on those days when you find yourself in need of a quick pick-me-up book.Although I read the electronic version I think I need to have the paperback version so I can hold it in my hands and flick between the pages. I hope the author will produce other volumes too.Great humour, good graphics, and lots to laugh about.Copy provided via Netgalley in exchange for an unbiased review.

    I loved this book, so funny in places and I will be getting my husband a copy to keep as it will be right up his street as we are currently expecting our first baby and he has all of this to come!! Definitely a read I'd recommend and certainly did make me laugh out loud!
