Summary (via Goodreads):
From New York Times bestselling author Jim Benton, meet Catwad! He’s blue, he’s a bit of a grouch, and his best friend is a dim-witted cat named Blurmp who can see the bright side of anything. From pizza and computers, to love and happiness, this crabby tabby has a funny take on just about everything, and he’s not afraid to share it. This collection of short comic stories will make even the grumpiest of grouches crack up and is not to be missed!

My Review:
The very entertaining graphic novel, Catwad, stars the grumpy cat, Catwad, and his best silly friend, Blurmp. We have the joy of following their day to day shenanigans and the funny predicaments they get into. There’s no real story but micro-moments.

I love both characters because they balance each other out. It’s a different kind of friendship. Catwad doesn’t dislike Blurmp; just happiness and fun. Blurmp, meanwhile, loves Catwad unconditionally.

There is an air of whimsy to the art. It’s powerful, creative and dynamic in its expressions, making for a great reading experience.

I really like this kind of storytelling and would read more books by Jim Benton.
