About Are You Gonna Eat That?

Jimmy Craig, humor writer and artist behind the popular webcomic series “They Can Talk,” offers more than 100+ hilarious animal comics in this comprehensive collection imagining what it would be like if we had VIP access to the lives of our animal friends and foes.

These colorful illustrated comics include the inner thoughts of creatures from across the animal kingdom—from misunderstood sharks and trouble-making bears to the often complicated relationship between you and your pet cat. Get dating advice from raccoons, some life perspective from dogs, and learn why cats are always knocking things off of shelves.

Updated to include brand new comics, fan favorites, redrawn classics, Are You Gonna Eat That? is the perfect quirky gift for any lover of animals, or for anyone who just loves to laugh.

Praise for Are You Gonna Eat That?

“‘They Can Talk’ is already instantly recognizable for its clever drawings and unexpected punchlines, and now the series finally gets its due in this hilarious and delightful collection.” —Sarah Andersen ― Sarah’s Scribbles

“Forget David Attenborough. Jimmy Craig is the master tour guide of the animal world.” —Nicholas Gurewitch ― PBF comics

“‘They Can Talk’ has a hilarious dry wit that I absolutely love and an art style that’s as gorgeous as it is minimalist. As a fellow cartoonist, I find Jimmy Craig’s ability to be simultaneously dark and playfully silly very upsetting to my fragile ego.” —Brian Gordon ― Fowl Language Comics
