REVIEW: 'Stray Dogs' #1 by Tony Fleecs, Trish Forstner, and Brad Simpson

 Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs. It's scary being the new dog. Sophie can’t remember what happened. She doesn’t know how she ended up in this house. She doesn’t recognize any of these other dogs. She knows something terrible happened, but she just…can’t…recall...WAIT! Where’s her lady? A five-issue Don Bluth-style suspense thriller by My Little Pony comic artists TONY FLEECS and TRISH FORSTNER, STRAY DOGS is Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs.   STRAY DOGS #1 Writer: Tony Fleecs Artist: Trish Forstner, Brad Simpson Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: February 24, 2021 Cover Price: $3.99 Score:  ★★★★☆ (4/5) 'Stray Dogs' may see itself as " Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs " but issue one was all Alfred Hitchcock.

This is where the journey ends. But with that in mind, it's still worth picking up if you haven't been following. Because you can start from the beginning and won't have to wait or wonder when it all wraps up. :)

Writer James F. Wright says, "If anything, what we most want someone to get out of our book is a satisfying conclusion. We've worked on this series for nearly five years and while there have been ups and downs, we ended it the way we wanted and on our own terms. It would mean the world to us for anyone reading to have found the story worth their time and the ending worth the ride."

He adds, "Without spoiling too much, there's actually a good line from this volume that stuck with us: 'True friends have your best interests at heart--not theirs.' And I think that's a good note not just for life but also for our characters and what they learn throughout the course of our tale."
