A striking hardcover with a full-color interior, Two Italian Guys is presented in a unique format that combines a long-running story with a selection of humorous cartoon shorts. Richard Krauss at Midnight Fiction calls Two Italian Guys an “entertaining package” that is “always amusing and entertaining, if not outright hilarious.”
The graphic novel continues in Book 2 as Sammy talks his brother Frankie into helping him with a few of Johnny G's "jobs" - one of which gets them in over their heads. Lou Peppino and his vegetable friends try to take a trip to the Jersey shore, but Lou ends up in the hospital instead. “Crazy Joe” Pazzo lives up to his nickname as he starts a fight over the quality of ketchup. Luckily, Joe calms down just in time to teach the reader how to make his famous spicy clam sauce. Last but not least, Mouse Carpone makes his debut as his wife (Tina Titmouse) backs into his car in their own driveway.
