A rip roaring adventure of a hobo named Johnson searching for the Rock Candy Mountain whilst being chased by the Devil, the Feds, and the hobo mafia. The art can be a little much to get through in places. I find the noses that look like mustaches particularly off-putting.

Even better than I was expecting and I was expecting a lot. It's great that we have Image Comics to make books like this available to larger audiences.

Hilarious hobo hijinks. Only 4 stars because I had it dramatically read to me and I didn’t get to see much of the illustration. Great stuff. Hobo spiders.

Excellent. Expertly weaves a intriguing narrative through a fantasy-style envisioning of hobo culture. Clever and engaging, though the proceedings can get a bit muddled at times and Pomona Slim is an annoying asshole.
