Booklist Review

Since Stack's two-decker strips and longer stories about his poodle, Ping, were drawn in the late 1970s, they're not really a dog-lover's response to the cats that dominated 1980s comics. Collected now, however, that's pretty much their effect, and is it ever welcome. Ping is a real pooch, insanely devoted to "the mighty ones" (i.e., his master and mistress), willing--nay, eager--to extend his love to Tommy the cat, puzzled as all dogs must be about "why people are so protective about their garbage," and alas, prone to pee too frequently for his mighty ones' pleasure. No Marmaduke, still less a Snoopy, Ping behaves too realistically (excretes, sniffs, and licks too much) for the funny pages, too realistically (not grossly absurd enough) for the adult comics magazines. Packaged in big, handsome paperback format, though, he's about perfect and a delight for those who like their dogs lovable but not "darling." --Ray Olson
