Apocalypse Bow Wow by James Proimos III and James Proimos Jr.

Proimos, J. III, &  Proimos, J. Jr. (illustrator). (2015). Apocalypse Bow Wow. New York: Bloomsbury.


One day, dogs Brownie and Apollo wake up to find that all of the humans have disappeared, leaving the animals behind. The pair must team up with other dogs to figure out where the humans have gone.

This humorous comic book looks into the minds of dogs in a realistic manner that anyone who has loved a dog will appreciate. Although it is over 200 pages, the plot moves quickly and the frames are large enough to make reading easy. Before they know it, readers will have flown through the story and will be salivating for the sequel Apocalypse Meow Meow.

I see this book being quite popular with young readers, especially those aged 6-10. It combines animals and humour into the popular comic book format, and with few words it is simple to read. Overall, because it was a cute read, I give this book a 4 out of 5.
