Korgi 01
Top Shelf has been talking a lot about their new all-ages book Korgi by Christian Slade and even put up a trailer a few days back.

Well, we got some advance pages in yesterday at the office, and both The Beat and our battle-tested intern Ada were rolling on the floor in paroxysms of cute overload. We had to quickly jab each other with hypodermic needles filled with insulin or we would have lapsed into a coma.

But what a happy coma it would have been because we would have been dreaming of…KORGI! OH JESUS, this is the furshlugginer cutest thing ever! EVAH! KORGI! We don’t even like dogs! What Morrison and Quitely do for a book featuring Superman, Slade has done for a book about a corgi and some elves. And what until you get to the scene where Korgi _______s ___e! OH GOD.

In case you can’t tell, we are dead serious here. Once you pick up Korgi, if you have a heart, you will not be able to put it down or stop going “That’s so cute!!!”

  1. Elves AND corgis? These guys must have interviewed my girlfriend about what it would take to get her to read more comics. She loves Get Fuzzy and Foxtrot and such, and loves anime, but I haven’t been able to get her to make the jump to comics or manga. She was very intrigued by Warriors: The Lost Warrior proof I brought home, but Korgi, I think, will drive her straight over the edge into screaming comics fandom. Most excellent…

  2. Corgis are the cutest dogs ever.

    At least that’s what my Welsh Corgi keeps telling me. She wouldn’t lie to me.

  3. Anyone got a stopwatch with a millisecond sweep hand on it to record how long it’ll be until Korgi’s got a development deal?
    It barks just like a license to print money.

  4. I can’t wait to pick this up for my daughter.

    Yeah, I might read it too. Just for research, mind you. Not because I love corgis or have a t-shirt that says “I HEART Corgis!”…definately not because of the corgi-shaped butter dish I own.
