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.
