Reviews of speculative fiction, YA, middle grade, and graphic novels, along with stray thoughts, links, and pictures.
The first issue starts with a blue panel with some text balloons intended to be a conversation between the creators:
There needs to be an idea behind it. We can't just decide to do a comic without any premise. We can't just come up with a cool name...something like...I don't know...Rocket Girl...without there being a story to back it up.
Wait. What's Rocket Girl?
And that's where I should have stopped, I think. The art in this is great. And it's fairly fast paced adventure, but the storytelling feels a lot like the result of that conversation. Like "sounds cool" was prioritized over anything else.
So, thanks for the warning, I guess?
I probably should not have read this right after Paper Girls. It's completely not fair of me.
