  • Puppets Have Feelings on Feb. 03, 2013

    I laughed a lot. The funniest scene is the one when the puppet shows its emotions(gangsters have), it has been training on for a long time and you cannot really see any difference. The writing style is easy, a bit ironic and the type fonds are good to read. The puppet likes erotic dance. The author puts much effort in drawing the puppet and comic strips. After all I was encouraged to watch some movies I have not seen yet to understand the scenes the puppet is referring to.
