    What a fun book! Even though this was written before Vattu, I came to know Dahm through the latter, a current ongoing webcomic that is outstanding. But I wanted to see what the previous story was like, and Rice Boy is strikingly different from the more recent narrative. It begins in a ...

    Rice Boy is what happens when Star Wars, The Hobbit and Dr. Suess have a baby. It's a wonderful and weird adventure saga. It's strange, and unlike anything I've really read before, and yet, incredibly familiar. Rice Boy is a strange protagonist -- he has no arms, no legs, looks like...

    absolutely adored this book ...

    This collection contains the entire five "book" run of the Rice Boy webcomic. Rice Boy is a surreal, gradually unfolding adventure about a strange world, its remarkable denizens, and a mysterious prophecy. That basic description may sound cliche, but Rice Boy fully transcends its f...

    A visually stimulating and thought-provoking adventure, Rice Boy tells of the search for a mysterious fulfiller of an ancient prophecy in which very few believe. While the story is sometimes difficult to follow, what is most intriguing is the way the characters counter and complete one...

    I LOVED Rice Boy, and tore through it in probably three days or so, even though it's pretty thick. It's everything I want in a fantasy webcomic. It's whimsical. It's a hero adventure story. It's visually stunning. It hints at lots of other stuff going on in the world you can't see. It'...

    Rice Boy is one of my favorite graphic novels ever. The setting is rich and gorgeous and the characters are practically old friends. ...

    Exquisitely beautiful. I read it all online but still am about to buy the book; it is so good I want to have a paper copy to flip through and enjoy. ...

    Rice Boy has a fairly standard Tolkienesque story, but the art and creativity behind the diverse cast of the world makes it something special. Cartoonist Evan Dahm has clearly put a ton of time and thought into his world called Overside. It is full of the most spectacular looking c...

    I read this at my fiancee's suggestion. She loved it and thought I might like it. I started out feeling that Rice Boy was just a passive participant and everyone else did stuff. At some point I no longer focused on that and simply enjoyed the adventure. Rice Boy is cute and very timid ...

    I first read Rice Boy as it was published as a daily webcomic between 2006 and 2008. It was an extremely formative and influential piece of those years of my life, and it was a joy to return to all this time later. While Dahm has improved vastly as a writer and illustrator in the years...

    Fans of Adventure Time would enjoy this strange, trippy, sweet comic about a planet filled with machine men, sentient frogs, monsters of all shapes and sizes, and tiny Rice Boy. I enjoyed the colors and character design--very creative and unexpected. ...

    Rice Boy is nice boy. This comic was trippy and great. ...

    Heart wrenchingly sweet and sad. ...

    4.5 stars It must be a sign of a good webcomic when I've previously clicked through to the site a few times, attempted to read the comic, then given up. This has happened with many other comics that have ended up becoming all-time favorites. Last night, I finally decided to commit t...

    I read this on the recommendation of a very good friend, with very good taste, and boy was I not disappointed. Rice Boy compiles all five books of Evan Dahm's web comic, a surreal, fantastical adventure in a world called Overside. And I loved it. The drawings are deceptively simple,...

    http://rice-boy.com/ Rice Boy, and the other stories that Evan Dahm has created, is probably one of my favorite webcomic series ever. Even though the whole comic is available for free online I still own a printed copy. Visually, this book is AMAZING. Everything is fantastically s...

    If you haven't heard of this book, go read the webcomic NOW. Evan Dahm has created such an ethereal, melancholy world. Plus, quests for meaning, fate, and the best assortment of amazing and terrifying creatures you'll find anywhere. If Dahm and Guillermo Del Toro teamed up, magical hor...

    Rice Boy is not just one of the best webcomics of all time. It is not just one of the best graphic novels ever. It is one of the best fantasy stories I have ever read. Taking place in a surreal, Yellow Submarine-meets-Tolkien universe, Rice Boy follows the epic quest of its small, n...

    Rice Boy captures everything that I love in a graphic novel: stunning visuals, a cast of eclectic and well-developed characters, and complex yet accessible themes. While it was almost necessary to flip back and forth between sections in the narrative (a little inconvenient to do if loo...

    Hieno, surrealistinen sarjakuvaromaani, jonka saa kokonaisuudessaan (yli 400 sivua!) lukea osoitteesta rice-boy.com. Välillä tosin päähenkilöiden tarkoitusperät ja matkan päämäärä saattaa hämärtyä uusien paikkojen ja olentojen ilmestyessä tarinaan tiuhaan tahtiin, mutta ...

    I've been meaning to read this for a long time, and finally bought the paperback at Stumptown. The hype was right, it's really good! Not so much for plot, which is fairly standard, or for dialogue, which does its job fine. But the strange, sad atmosphere was wonderful to sink into, ...

    Evan Dahm's brain must be a fascinating place. This book is full of lush color, mind-boggling fantastical details, and the cutest protagonist-who-looks-like-a-mushroom ever. I plowed through this book in two days and already kind of want to read it again. Its one weakness is that t...

    An astonishing book. There are pages of pure graphic genius and the storytelling is brilliant. It's true that the overall premise may be a bit worn and a bit Dickensian - an orphan finds his place in the world - but then Dickens himself, starting with such a simple premise, wrote some ...

    I'm so grateful that I found out about the fantastic, surreal, and melancholy adventures of Rice Boy. The story is set in Overside, an extremely imaginative, creative, and unique world. I will definitely be reading Evan Dahm's other comics set in Overside. Even though I found this comi...

    Not sure what my feelings/thoughts are on this as of yet. On the one hand, it was the typical story of the journey to save the world, and the world itself is quite unique, but on the other hand, the plot got a bit confusing at times. The Christian imagery is quite rampant, at least I t...

    Some stories are told better through the medium of the graphic novel, I'm not sure this is one of them. However, it's possible that the illustrations are meant to distract from the more run-of-the-mill story. I've heard the heroes journey, but have never seen it with creatures that loo...

    I first read Rice Boy as it was published as a daily webcomic between 2006 and 2008. It was an extremely formative and influential piece of those years of my life, and it was a joy to return to all this time later. While Dahm has improved vastly as a writer and illustrator in the years...

    I first read Rice Boy as it was published as a daily webcomic between 2006 and 2008. It was an extremely formative and influential piece of those years of my life, and it was a joy to return to all this time later. While Dahm has improved vastly as a writer and illustrator in the years...

    Fans of Adventure Time would enjoy this strange, trippy, sweet comic about a planet filled with machine men, sentient frogs, monsters of all shapes and sizes, and tiny Rice Boy. I enjoyed the colors and character design--very creative and unexpected. ...

    Rice Boy is nice boy. This comic was trippy and great. ...

    Heart wrenchingly sweet and sad. ...

    I read this on the recommendation of a very good friend, with very good taste, and boy was I not disappointed. Rice Boy compiles all five books of Evan Dahm's web comic, a surreal, fantastical adventure in a world called Overside. And I loved it. The drawings are deceptively simple,...

    http://rice-boy.com/ Rice Boy, and the other stories that Evan Dahm has created, is probably one of my favorite webcomic series ever. Even though the whole comic is available for free online I still own a printed copy. Visually, this book is AMAZING. Everything is fantastically s...

    If you haven't heard of this book, go read the webcomic NOW. Evan Dahm has created such an ethereal, melancholy world. Plus, quests for meaning, fate, and the best assortment of amazing and terrifying creatures you'll find anywhere. If Dahm and Guillermo Del Toro teamed up, magical hor...

    Rice Boy is not just one of the best webcomics of all time. It is not just one of the best graphic novels ever. It is one of the best fantasy stories I have ever read. Taking place in a surreal, Yellow Submarine-meets-Tolkien universe, Rice Boy follows the epic quest of its small, n...

    Rice Boy captures everything that I love in a graphic novel: stunning visuals, a cast of eclectic and well-developed characters, and complex yet accessible themes. While it was almost necessary to flip back and forth between sections in the narrative (a little inconvenient to do if loo...

    Evan Dahm's brain must be a fascinating place. This book is full of lush color, mind-boggling fantastical details, and the cutest protagonist-who-looks-like-a-mushroom ever. I plowed through this book in two days and already kind of want to read it again. Its one weakness is that t...

    I'm so grateful that I found out about the fantastic, surreal, and melancholy adventures of Rice Boy. The story is set in Overside, an extremely imaginative, creative, and unique world. I will definitely be reading Evan Dahm's other comics set in Overside. Even though I found this comi...

    Not sure what my feelings/thoughts are on this as of yet. On the one hand, it was the typical story of the journey to save the world, and the world itself is quite unique, but on the other hand, the plot got a bit confusing at times. The Christian imagery is quite rampant, at least I t...

    Some stories are told better through the medium of the graphic novel, I'm not sure this is one of them. However, it's possible that the illustrations are meant to distract from the more run-of-the-mill story. I've heard the heroes journey, but have never seen it with creatures that loo...

    Rice Boy is what happens when Star Wars, The Hobbit and Dr. Suess have a baby. It's a wonderful and weird adventure saga. It's strange, and unlike anything I've really read before, and yet, incredibly familiar. Rice Boy is a strange protagonist -- he has no arms, no legs, looks like...

    I LOVED Rice Boy, and tore through it in probably three days or so, even though it's pretty thick. It's everything I want in a fantasy webcomic. It's whimsical. It's a hero adventure story. It's visually stunning. It hints at lots of other stuff going on in the world you can't see. It'...

    I read this at my fiancee's suggestion. She loved it and thought I might like it. I started out feeling that Rice Boy was just a passive participant and everyone else did stuff. At some point I no longer focused on that and simply enjoyed the adventure. Rice Boy is cute and very timid ...

    I first read Rice Boy as it was published as a daily webcomic between 2006 and 2008. It was an extremely formative and influential piece of those years of my life, and it was a joy to return to all this time later. While Dahm has improved vastly as a writer and illustrator in the years...

    Fans of Adventure Time would enjoy this strange, trippy, sweet comic about a planet filled with machine men, sentient frogs, monsters of all shapes and sizes, and tiny Rice Boy. I enjoyed the colors and character design--very creative and unexpected. ...

    Rice Boy is nice boy. This comic was trippy and great. ...

    Heart wrenchingly sweet and sad. ...

    4.5 stars It must be a sign of a good webcomic when I've previously clicked through to the site a few times, attempted to read the comic, then given up. This has happened with many other comics that have ended up becoming all-time favorites. Last night, I finally decided to commit t...

    I read this on the recommendation of a very good friend, with very good taste, and boy was I not disappointed. Rice Boy compiles all five books of Evan Dahm's web comic, a surreal, fantastical adventure in a world called Overside. And I loved it. The drawings are deceptively simple,...

    http://rice-boy.com/ Rice Boy, and the other stories that Evan Dahm has created, is probably one of my favorite webcomic series ever. Even though the whole comic is available for free online I still own a printed copy. Visually, this book is AMAZING. Everything is fantastically s...

    If you haven't heard of this book, go read the webcomic NOW. Evan Dahm has created such an ethereal, melancholy world. Plus, quests for meaning, fate, and the best assortment of amazing and terrifying creatures you'll find anywhere. If Dahm and Guillermo Del Toro teamed up, magical hor...

    Rice Boy is not just one of the best webcomics of all time. It is not just one of the best graphic novels ever. It is one of the best fantasy stories I have ever read. Taking place in a surreal, Yellow Submarine-meets-Tolkien universe, Rice Boy follows the epic quest of its small, n...

    Rice Boy captures everything that I love in a graphic novel: stunning visuals, a cast of eclectic and well-developed characters, and complex yet accessible themes. While it was almost necessary to flip back and forth between sections in the narrative (a little inconvenient to do if loo...

    Hieno, surrealistinen sarjakuvaromaani, jonka saa kokonaisuudessaan (yli 400 sivua!) lukea osoitteesta rice-boy.com. Välillä tosin päähenkilöiden tarkoitusperät ja matkan päämäärä saattaa hämärtyä uusien paikkojen ja olentojen ilmestyessä tarinaan tiuhaan tahtiin, mutta ...

    I've been meaning to read this for a long time, and finally bought the paperback at Stumptown. The hype was right, it's really good! Not so much for plot, which is fairly standard, or for dialogue, which does its job fine. But the strange, sad atmosphere was wonderful to sink into, ...

    Evan Dahm's brain must be a fascinating place. This book is full of lush color, mind-boggling fantastical details, and the cutest protagonist-who-looks-like-a-mushroom ever. I plowed through this book in two days and already kind of want to read it again. Its one weakness is that t...

    Read this online here. A lovely little graphic novel/comic. Fantastic storytelling, fairly minimalist. Touching characters and themes with compelling plot, despite not much concrete character development and the reader largely in the dark about the world conflict (because the protag...

    An astonishing book. There are pages of pure graphic genius and the storytelling is brilliant. It's true that the overall premise may be a bit worn and a bit Dickensian - an orphan finds his place in the world - but then Dickens himself, starting with such a simple premise, wrote some ...

    I'm so grateful that I found out about the fantastic, surreal, and melancholy adventures of Rice Boy. The story is set in Overside, an extremely imaginative, creative, and unique world. I will definitely be reading Evan Dahm's other comics set in Overside. Even though I found this comi...

    Not sure what my feelings/thoughts are on this as of yet. On the one hand, it was the typical story of the journey to save the world, and the world itself is quite unique, but on the other hand, the plot got a bit confusing at times. The Christian imagery is quite rampant, at least I t...

    Some stories are told better through the medium of the graphic novel, I'm not sure this is one of them. However, it's possible that the illustrations are meant to distract from the more run-of-the-mill story. I've heard the heroes journey, but have never seen it with creatures that loo...

    One of my all-time-favourite webcomics. Evan Dahm is in the process of creating the richest fantasy world since Middle Earth, and everything I have read by him is utterly wonderful. Rice Boy, in particular, sticks with me because it contains a character which I really came to identify ...

    This might be better read bit by bit rather than in one go like I did. Seeing as it is a webcomic and all... Read straight through, it feels a little short and underdeveloped -- everything happens too close together. I'd like to read it again, but only reading, say, a chapter a week, o...

    What a fun book! Even though this was written before Vattu, I came to know Dahm through the latter, a current ongoing webcomic that is outstanding. But I wanted to see what the previous story was like, and Rice Boy is strikingly different from the more recent narrative. It begins in a ...

    Rice Boy is what happens when Star Wars, The Hobbit and Dr. Suess have a baby. It's a wonderful and weird adventure saga. It's strange, and unlike anything I've really read before, and yet, incredibly familiar. Rice Boy is a strange protagonist -- he has no arms, no legs, looks like...

    absolutely adored this book ...

    This collection contains the entire five "book" run of the Rice Boy webcomic. Rice Boy is a surreal, gradually unfolding adventure about a strange world, its remarkable denizens, and a mysterious prophecy. That basic description may sound cliche, but Rice Boy fully transcends its f...

    A visually stimulating and thought-provoking adventure, Rice Boy tells of the search for a mysterious fulfiller of an ancient prophecy in which very few believe. While the story is sometimes difficult to follow, what is most intriguing is the way the characters counter and complete one...

    I LOVED Rice Boy, and tore through it in probably three days or so, even though it's pretty thick. It's everything I want in a fantasy webcomic. It's whimsical. It's a hero adventure story. It's visually stunning. It hints at lots of other stuff going on in the world you can't see. It'...

    Rice Boy is one of my favorite graphic novels ever. The setting is rich and gorgeous and the characters are practically old friends. ...
