My wife LOVES the minions. That is why I bought this book when I saw it on the shelves at my local comic book store. She got a kick out of it.
The shorts reminded me of a children’s version of “The Lighter Side” that we would see in “Mad Magazine”. They’re quick, to the point, and good for a laugh. They are perfect for children, which is their target audience. Fortunately, immature minds speak to me. I loved it.
It isn’t the “Great American Novel”. It isn’t trying to be. “Minions: Mini Boss” is a great way to get your kids into comics that aren’t necessarily focused on superheroes. With the shorts being the length that they are they easily hold a child’s attention. The fact that they make kids laugh is an ideal way to get them to want to read more. As a geek on a budget, I am completely behind any book that does that.
