John Martz is a gag technician. He has an astonishingly fine-tuned sense of how a drawing can convey humor in as few lines as possible. He’s quite skilled at coming up with simple but memorable character designs created to be as flexible as possible. While I’ve enjoyed much of his other gag work (mostly in Team Society League), his kid’s book A Cat Named Tim And Other Stories may well be his best comic. Each gag is well-designed, easy to understand and packs a genuine laugh. I tested the book on my five-year-old daughter to see if she could follow it (she’s just learning to read), and the way that Martz continually subverted audiences expectations led to laugh after laugh.
