We Review Book One Of Morgan’s Organs
In Pixar‘s Inside Out the film is focused on the conflicting emotions of Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness inside a little girl going through some significant life changes. In Morgan’s Organs, it focuses on Morgans body parts fighting about what’s the best course to fix his current sexual dry spell. What writer Daniel Brodie and artist Robert Jennex have created is essentially the adult version of inside out.
Bran the brain and Pepe the penis are constantly debating over the right girl for Morgan and when he should finally end his drought, while the other body parts put their two cents into the conversation.
Morgan is your average university student – a little awkward, a bit unsure, and susceptible to any sort of pressure. Really, Morgan is just a boy learning how to grow up and find what he wants in life.
Pepe the penis is the dick we’ve been waiting to see. His impulsive nature often leads him to butt heads with Bran’s logical approach to governing Morgan. Between Pepe’s soft spot and his sturdy better half, it’s always an adventure with Pepe around.
Bran the brain is the self-professed leader of Morgan’s “organauts”. He struggles to balance his beliefs in how to lead Morgan down the right path with what the rest of his body wants. Sometimes Bran overthinks things, but really, he just wants what’s best for Morgan. It’s tough though when Morgan doesn’t always listen to logic.
Hugo the heart has an even bigger heart of his own. He’s caring to the emotional state of others, especially Morgan. He’s an advocate for “true love” and wants Morgan to find “the one”. Hugo just wears his heart too much on his sleeve sometimes.
Lou the lungs sure is the opposite of a breath of fresh air. He has strong opinions and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Lou gets easily bored by his repetitive work responsibilities, so he looks for distractions in the body through the pitfalls of the others.
Meats is the simple-minded stomach with a belly of his own. His passion is cooking whatever Morgan sends his way, but he sure is lazy in all other walks of life. Don’t make Meats wait too long for his next meal or he might get “hangry”.
Andy is the old and frail appendix who talks with a withered voice and walks with a cane. His lack of responsibility in Morgan’s body means that Andy spends most of his time reading books and becoming ultra-intelligent. However, the organs often brush off Andy’s philosophical comments and wise advice given his lack of functional credibility, leaving him in a constant state of rejection.
Angus the anus is the potty-mouthed one of the group. Angus especially likes to talk with toilet bowl puns and spends his days taking out the trash and letting out the breeze. He’s usually easygoing and helpful, but when doody calls, he sure can turn into an ass.
This comic surprised me a lot actually. It’s not as raunchy as I expected and overall has a great balance of humour human relatability and best of all is not a chore to read (like many comics can be). They got me wanting to read book 2 and seeing what other topics they will tackle in it.
Speaking of which you can get your copy of book one and the soon to be released book 2 of Morgan’s Organs on Kickstarter. The campaign is already funded and working on reaching stretch goals, so you can pledge confidently knowing you will get your rewards.
