The fact that my seven-year-old son was reading this and constantly taking breaks to try to excitedly describe certain comics, panel by panel, speaks to Scene but Not Heard's all-ages appeal. The fact that he couldn't convey just how damn funny it is, despite being very well spoken for his age, speaks to Sam Henderson's gift for cartooning. This volume collects comics that Henderson did for Nickelodeon magazine from 1993-2009. It's visual, inventive, unconventional, and pretty great.

Simply: if sight gags are appealing to you, you won't find many at this level of expertise or approaching this creativity. This is really wonderful all-ages stuff that was easy to miss, since it was only printed in a children's magazine for 16 years. The encounters between the two protagonists, a man and a bear, are surreal, not to be missed, andunlike Henderson's hilarious comic Magic Whistlecan and should be shared with kids and prudes alike.
