There should be no preconceptions when it comes to a comic named Fat Mitch. The reader gets exactly what they are looking for when you turn right to page one and meet our character whose name is simply Mitch but those around have nicknamed the nice, humble, yet rotund man Fat Mitch.
Fat Mitch is a good looking guy who simply is a bigger man. It probably doesn’t help that the man owns a bakery, but that is beside the point. ‘Bigger’ girls are way into Fat Mitch but Mitch just longs for a skinny girl. One particular girl is Karen, the girl who works over at the flower shop. When the big man goes in armed with cookies and a date proposal the mean See-You-Next-Tuesday blows poor Mitch off in a heartbeat, knowing full well that she would never date a man as fat as Mitch..
So we all know what’s next. Hot girl blows off fat boy because he’s too fat. Fat boy takes off with his heart broken and yet determined. The pudgy fellow, who has been fat for his whole life, is finally at the point where he needs to do a lot of hard work and sacrifice to get himself thin. So what does he do? He goes to a psychic who gives him a magic frog and a corked vase. A secret potion perhaps to make him thin? Why of course not, a plot like that would give the story away. What happens next to Fat Mitch sets up a story we’ll all know will have our rotund comedic fellow going through much more brevity before (and if) he reaches his goal.
Fat Mitch #1is a wonderful start to tale of a man who will go through many adventures to try and land the heart of some snobby girl who works at a flower shop.
