I received a copy of this book from Oni Press through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Based on the acclaimed Game Grumps visual novel video game, Dream Daddy is a companion comic novel for all fans of the series. This comic series tells five standalone stories, each focusing on different Maple Bay Dads, with backstories, adventures and romance.
As a fan of the game and its creators, I knew instantly that I’d love this little book companion, and it did not disappoint.
With gorgeous illustrations, ‘Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Comic Book’ tells five individual stories of different Dads, each with their own romantic plot line suitable for the character’s personalities. Although, I personally advise those wishing to read to play the video game first, purely for enjoyment, it’s not essential as these stories are entirely separate and new.
The stories themselves are all pure and adorable, with each Daddy having their own personal dilemma and the protagonist supporting them through the situation. Even though, I did feel as if it was slow-paced in parts, the overall beautiful illustrations and pure adorableness made up for any issues.
This charming collection of stories was a joy to read, with drama, romance, and the occasional pun, it’s impossible not to love this little book.
