This is an adorable book of the first two years of the webcomic.

The artwork is a joy with thick lines and clear, uncluttered framing that provides a perfect canvas for the expressive, character driven story. It's a sports story based around college hockey, but it's much much more: coming out, fitting in, being different, dealing (or not) with expectations and a glorious slow burn gay romance. Eric 'Bitty' Bittle is the cutest bloody narrator in the history of narrators, and is surrounded by a cast of amazing secondary characters.

I love this comic. ( )

I wasn’t so sure about a gay relationship between hockey players, but here it is, the second book, so it’s working.

This is the story of a pie-baking hockey player from a small-town in Georgia who starts college and settles into the jock culture.

Eric “Bitty” Bittle’s is starting college and is on the hockey team at Samwell University in Massachusetts. Bitty is an experienced hockey player and has figure skated competitively. The team back home was coed did not allow “checking,” or physical contact, and Bitty’s fear of being hit becomes a real issue in college hockey. Bitty’s team captain, Jack Zimmerman, “the hockey prince,” is determined to help Bitty break through his fear of being checked. During the process, Bitty develops a serious crush on good looking, Jack. . As the practices and games develop, Bitty forms bonds with the other players and soon comes out. This helps him settle into college life.more readily. He finishes the first year and as sophomore year rolls around, Bitty has to face that two of his closest teammates are seniors and will be leaving soon.

It’s a sweet story with themes of acceptance, standing up to fear, and finding your place.

The art uses exaggerated expressive facial shots to complement the quick and sometimes-raunchy dialogue. Bitty is white, and there is some diversity in secondary characters ( )

An adorable book about college hockey, baking, and just a twinge of romance. Bittle is a former competitive figure skater who impresses small Samwell College into giving him a hockey scholarship. His manners are not typical hockey bro, but he is accepted by his teammates and typical college shenanigans goes on.

This seems to often be put in with middle grade graphic novels, but while there's no sexual content to speak of, there is a lot of swearing and drinking - again, this is a college novel. I loved the humor and the art, but at the back of the book are a bunch of "non-chronological" strips and several pages of Bitties tweets. The comics seemed like they would have fit pretty well in the chronology and explained a lot of things, too. The tweets separated from the other comics lose a lot of their flavor. Oh well. This was sweet, you probably should check it out.

Check, Please!

Next: 'Sticks and Scones' ( )
