Hey, Mister: Come Hell or Highwater Pants by Pete Sickman-Garner

Talk about family issues. This book will have you cracking up two ways to Sunday. 

This is how I broke down the characters: 
Young Tim = funny little character not sure if adult or child; maybe adult because he does drink 
Satan = tired of ruling hell wants to relax and be human, needs to get his soul back to stay on earth 
Jesus = too hippy, with way too many daddy issues; eventually stands up to God's bullying parenting style 
Mister = artist with a porn addiction, he's the creative author-y type, he prefers the term erotica over porn [LOL] 
Aunt Mary =  laid back, bitchy friend of mister, with a twisted sense of humor 
God = is portrayed as total douche, he sucks at parenting and apparently doesn’t want anyone in heaven, he actually compares humans to animals 
Mary = Jesus' mom, way too overprotective of her baby boy 

Hell = too much work, seems to be ran like a business 
Heaven = SUCKS, especially with God being such a douche 
Earth = pretty cool place 

If this breakdown isn't enough to get you to buy a copy I don't know what will. The dialogue is witty, the characters are stitches, the drawings are all black and white but its ok, it works with the story.

Rating 4 out of 5
