Caveboy Dave has a good head on his shoulders. Like his forefathers, he can create new inventions. Sadly his own father doesn't think they quite live up to the family standard, and so he sends off his son to participate in the village's coming-of-age ceremony. The Baby-Go-Boom requires all twelve year olds to go out and hunt one of the big six, thus proving themselves contributors to the community. Dave though, well he's rather scrawny, and he knows he has no chance. During the course of the hunt, he and the others, learn that what you learn in school does not equate to practical experience, and, that there is more than one way to achieve the same ends. These lessons are woven cleanly into a very funny graphic novel. The humour is a mixture of wit and sarcasm, and low-brow comedy, thus appealing to a fair range of people. McAndrew's naive style also elicits quite a few laughs, and nicely fits with the setting. Dave and friends have already proved their worth to the community, so it will be interesting to see what they do next.
