Sharky Malarky, by Megan Nicole Dong, is the third collection of cartoons about Bruce, the attention-hogging shark who used to be an actor. As well as Bruce's exploits, there are also feminist comics about menstruation and men who have been "deceived by makeup". Other animals also make an appearance, such as crabs with hands, Satanic goldfish, the Bird of Encouragement and Toad, the toad who is tired of being mistaken for a frog.

from Sharky Malarky by Megan Nicole Dong.

Both the simple, playful art and the quirky style of humour are reminiscent of the art of Sara Anderson of Sara's Scribbles, as in her collection Herding Cats, also published by Andrews McMeel Publishing.

Megan's comics are frequently self deprecating, often relatable, and always funny. This collection is a fun read, best enjoyed with a cuppa or a glass of wine after a long day.

Disclaimer: I was given a complementary copy of this book by Andrews McMeel Publishing, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
