Check, Please!: # Hockey (2018) Ngozi Ukazu

Check Please HockeyEric Bittle was a junior figure skating champion, but now he’s a Freshman in college and on the Samwell University hockey team–but not quite sure he’s ready for checking.

Also, he has a crush on one of his teammates–the star and captain, Jack Zimmerman.

It’s a cute story, however, since it’s about male college hockey players, there is a LOT of cursing and drinking.

Just so you know.

But also silly.

There are a couple issues, however. This was originally a web comic, which is great. However, the print comic put all the comic bits together and didn’t integrate the tweets and explainers into the story, which means it felt like there were pieces missing was you read the comic.

It wasn’t a deal-breaker, but it was an issue in following the story at times.

Publisher: First Second
Rating: 7/10

NOTE: I went and read the entire webcomic up to what has been published, all in one sitting. So take that as well.
