Review: March of the Crabs Vol. 1

March of the Crabs Vol. 1
March of the Crabs Vol. 1 by Arthur de Pins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*Received a free digital copy from NetGalley in exchange for a review*

I picked this up with little knowledge of what it was about. Crabs defying fate sounded amusing and I liked the cover.

This volume both surprised me and exceeded all my expectations.

While the art is wonderful, the story takes some effectively unexpected turns, and the humor is a lot of fun – the central story also has a lot more heart than I was originally expected. “March of the Crabs” is essentially an adventure story. Through the experiences of three crabs – and the other sea life and humans they interact with – this is a story about the value of relationships and the desire to overcome one’s boundaries. It has regular philosophical moments woven in with humor and hijinks, that ultimately create a story that is touching, delightful, and simply fun to read.
