Toto Trouble: Back to Crass: 02/03/17
Toto Trouble: Back to Crass by Thierry Coppée is the "first chapter" in a new series, and so far, thankfully the only one to be translated into English. Toto is a school aged boy who is nothing but a screw up, lives with parents who hate him, and is apparently hilarious for all the mayhem he creates.
Long story short: he isn't funny. He's most certainly crass. But even crass can be funny. But not here. Crass here involves child abuse (and probably spousal abuse), violence to animals, and misogyny.
It's the same hateful vitriol rehashed page after page in the so-called name of humor. It was old by the second page. By a quarter of the way through, with some skimming, it was obvious that the same "jokes" would be continuing all the way through.
