Counter [Dogs and comic strips enjoy a long history together. But leave it to the highly creative mind of cartoonist Steve Watkins to come up with a "dawg" like no other. Watkins's pooch is none other than DJ Dog, a down-on-his-luck, ex-rap star canine forced by circumstances beyond his control to become a permanent houseguest in a suburban family household. Talk about culture shock!Watkins pulls off this unlikely scenario in his hot new comic strip, Housebroken, which captures fans everywhere it appears. Now Housebroken: There's a New Dawg in Town provides the perfect way for fans to find out what happens when hip-hop and suburban cultures clash under one roof. DJ continues to be a star-at least in his own mind-but he must share the stage with the Watson family, including neurotic attorney and father Thurgood, outspoken mother Leslie, nine-year-old businesswoman and daughter Mya, and seven-year-old son Malik, who likes cars and sports second only to his once-famous pit bull.Housebroken boasts all the elements of a hilarious comedy: city dog in the 'burbs, personal agendas galore, attitude and ineptitude, egos to match the extremes. Like the strip, this book holds multiracial appeal, reaching a broad audience with its universal themes of family, cooperation, and overcoming differences.
