Summary

Eric Bittle may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur p√Ętissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge. It is nothing like co-ed club hockey back in Georgia! First of all? There's checking (anything that hinders the player with possession of the puck, ranging from a stick check all the way to a physical sweep). And then, there is Jack -- his very attractive but moody captain.

A collection of the first half, freshmen and sophomore year, of the megapopular webcomic series of the same name, Check, Please!: #Hockey is the first book of a hilarious and stirring two-volume coming-of-age story about hockey, bros, and trying to find yourself during the best four years of your life.

This book includes updated art and a hilarious, curated selection of Bitty's beloved tweets.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Freshman year of college can be a rocky transition for anyone, but wide-eyed, irrepressible Eric Bittle is here to make the best of it. Bitty's a vlogging, pie-baking, pop-music-loving, figure-skating boy from Georgia, who's come to Samwell University in Massachusetts on a hockey scholarship. At first, it's a whole new world that Bitty isn't too sure about. He doesn't connect with the team right away (I guess it just takes time to click with people after they do unspeakable things to your pies), the game is a lot more intense than he's used to (they didn't have checking back home, and Bitty does not respond well to being body slammed), and the team captain, Jack, may be gorgeous and from hockey royalty, but he's really intense. Through his first two years at Samwell, Bitty vlogs about his ups and downs as he gains confidence in his team and himself. Ukazu, who began Bitty's story as an uberpopular webcomic, folds in plenty of hockey terms and highlights team camaraderie while skillfully dismantling themes of toxic masculinity. The bright, energetic illustrations are as buoyant as their hero, and the hockey scenes often close-up shots of elbows, skates, and pucks are especially frenetic. A slow-burn, same-sex romance is just the icing on the cake (sorry pie) in this irresistibly fun and utterly charming sports story. Volume two can't come fast enough.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Eric Bittle loves three things: skating, baking pies, and vlogging. Somehow, that combination has landed him a scholarship at Massachusetts' Samwell University, where he joins the ice hockey team. Idiosyncratic teammates provide a surprising kinship network for Bittle as he moves away from his home state of Georgia, acclimates to college life, and comes out. But while his fellow players take to his pies and tolerate his resistance to being hit on the ice, they reach their threshold with Bittle's singing throughout all hours of the day and night. This series opener collects the drama, mishaps, successes, and romance of Bittle's first two years at college from Ukazu's webcomic of the same name. The art relies on thick linework and facial shots to tell the story, playing to Ukazu's knack for pithy, personality-showing dialogue. Ukazu blends a series of tropes (coming-of-age, coming out, an outsider finding acceptance) into one coherent, amusing tale. Ages 14-up. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
