Even though he's just a poor orphaned boy, it's a well-known fact that there's no greater firefighter than Olaf Oedwards, a.k.a. "Kid Firechief"! And if you've ever wondered what would happen if the greatest firechief of all time fought one of the greatest fires of all time, you'll find the answer here in this charming graphic novel for children of all ages. Weissman's charming and respectful approach to his child characters has been compared to the work of Charles M. Schulz and Little Lulu's John Stanley. He mixes an absurdist sense of humor with very human emotion to create a deceptively simple and very charming book. While some of these stories (not all!) were published in Measles, the unique fiery orange two-toned effect will make them all look brand new.
"Weissman may have drawn a story about kids that reads well for kids, but he delivers a powerful and tear-jerking message to adults in the end." – Movie Poop Shoot
"For readers born 60 years late, the Kid Firechief is an excellent throwback to the pulp adventure serials of the '40s and '50s." – Resonance
