SUPER DIAPER BABY, vol 1
Super Diaper Baby is the first in a series of graphic novels by Dav Pilkey, creator of the childrens book series "Captain Underpants". Somewhat controversial when it was first released (it was banned from multiple school libraries) because of the "potty humor" throughout, it still remains a very popular bestseller. Probably because kids like the "potty humor".
As for me, I love this story. I can't remember when I ever laughed so hard and so many times at just one story. And I've read a lot of stories. There's nothing wrong with having a good laugh every now and then; in fact, they say it's healthy for you.
This is not the whole book, it only covers the first half because I feel this is a book that every person who loves humorous comics should own. That's not a light statement. I rarely give a 5★ endorsement to anything.
from THE ADVENTURES OF SUPER DIAPER BABY (ISBN: 0-439-37606-8), 2002
The fight scene is presented in FLIP-O-RAMA™, which just doesn't translate well to the internet. Nothing like owning a physical copy of a comic is there?
After the escape, Deputy Dangerous works on an evil invention.
When it's completed, he delivers it to the Hoskins family as a 'prize' won from a contest.
And it just gets even funnier from there. Throughout the second half of the book, he is called 'Deputy DooDoo'.
I have to ask y'all, when have you ever read a graphic novel in which the villain was a piece of crap? I mean literally?
Misspellings abound, and the plot takes some strange twists as it all leads up to the final showdown between Super Diaper Baby and Deputy DooDoo.
Wonder what happens next? BUY THE BOOK!
