Reviewer’s Notes: The cover art is phenomenal and is something that I can easily see being a poster on someone’s wall or in a coloring book to spend hours on end making the colors change to some one’s imagination. The vibrant colors and conveyed detail easily make this cover stand out as an attention grabber.
The interior art is just as phenomenal as the cover, and while the styles of the main characters vary slightly from the cover, the emotion that the characters convey, show the feelings and thoughts that they are experiencing at that moment. Which always makes the story better in the long run. Some of the panels like the cover I could easily see being posters to be put on the wall, or coloring pages where some one can enjoy long periods of time.
The story itself is not something I am familiar with, but I found myself enjoying what I read, the text flowed easily from one panel to another, the lettering was easy to read and I like how in a few cases, it even changed colors to indicate a different person was talking. There were a few times where the jokes referenced in the books would be lost on a younger audience, and for that I gave it a PG-13 rating.
All in all, the story mixed with the stunning artwork make this book a series that is quite unique and easily something that can be followed and enjoyed by a larger audience. Once invested the characters are relatable and the journey fun.
