    The bar was set pretty high with the first BUG BOYS comic. It looked on the surface to be just a cute and light junior graphic novel, but ended up exploring some unexpectedly deeper emotions, dilemmas, and life lessons--widening its age range appeal considerably. This second Bug Boys adventure is still creative and fun, but lacks the emotional depth of its predecessor for the most part. This one is more just a kids' comic.

    cute episodic stories about bug best friends, occasionally interspersed with some surreal weirdness. bug boys always hits the spot for me. they teach good lessons and have such a love and appreciation for nature.

    This was such a cute graphic novel. I loved the artwork! All of the stories were really great too. I think the one where they go to the library convention was my favorite of all of the stories. Thanks to NetGalley for a free ARC!

It's an attempt to get well-meaning morals across about generosity, sharing compliments and suchlike, but with the oddball, unsettling manner of "Dougal and the Blue Cat", to use a very different critic's reference point. Not my thing, and I can see it being quite a Marmite title for the intended readers, too.

    Bug Boys: Outside and Beyond gets trippy and philosophical and breaks the 4th wall often! But I enjoyed it just as much as the first book. Stag-B and Rhino-B are still as adorable as ever. The artwork is oh-so lovely with green foliage and cartoony expressions. I would recommend this for middle grade readers because some of the more philosophical bits may confuse younger kids (but also an opportunity to create discussion).

Also, Stag-B’s insecurities about Rhino-B growing up faster than him will probably resonate more with middle grade readers because they’re in a transitory period.

    Who knew bugs could be so cute and sweet? This is the second volume of Bug Boys, the adventures of two best friends. Rhino-B and Stag-B (the B stands for Beetle!) go on more adventures around Bug Village to help Dome Spider expand their library, and assist other assorted critter friends, new and old! Bug Boys is perfect for fans of Steven Universe and Adventure Time, a wonderful blend of simplicity, humor, exploration, and kindness.

    I was a big fan of Bug Boys volume 1. This volume did not have the same level of charm. The chapters were longer, so though the length of the book is about the same, the characters go on significantly fewer adventures. There is also too much focus on “trippy” imagery and themes that are trying to touch on profound themes that miss the mark. Still worth the read since it’s a fun little adventure and won’t take long to read, but definitely not as good as volume 1.

    Every day is exciting and new, and I love that Stag-B and Rhino-B are always up for the challenge. They even make new friends along the way. These collections of short stories would be super fun for the kiddos. They teach some great lessons that I think even adults will appreciate, and they will make you love and appreciate nature too!

    In this next installment in the Bug Boys series, Rhino B and Stag B go on more adventures together, around Bug Village and beyond. Another cure installment in the series with more adorable/Adventure Time like illustrations. Some of the stories got a little too philosophical/existential for young readers to pick up on. But fans of the first Bug Boys graphic novel will enjoy this one as well.

    Another fun Bug Boy adventure! I like that it is short stories within the longer graphic novel. It makes it easier for a child reading it to not be overwhelmed with the length. The adventures are fun, and funny. I really like the art. I think this is a great read for 2nd-4th graders, and could be a fun read-aloud as well. (Read a digital ARC from Netgalley.)

    Got a starred review in journal and I am always looking for new GN. Not really a good fit for my collection. Not the kind of graphic novel my kids like to read. Reminds me of Catstronauts, which does not circulate well in my library.

    Bug Boys is great. Knetzger writes with the empathy and introspection of Le Guin, as well as the unwavering innocence of Lobel. And this is all while making something completely her own. It’s just a delightful book, and I look forward to the coming volumes.
