Itty Bitty Hellboy Hardcover Review

   One can say that kids shouldn't read this due to the title, and character name, of Hellboy still being a part of the comic. I say this is no more wrong for kids than Spongebob. Sure some of the jokes will go above a child's head in terms of the adult nature, such as the hot sauce transformation joke. However Spongebob works at "The Krusty Krab" which is obviously a dirty joke, so why should the name Hellboy be a problem! In other words, the writing and plots are innocent and clean enough for young and old readers to enjoy.

  The art, which shows great design and line work, makes the comic very motion-filled in a more child-like way than the Tin-Tin books of old. This is caused by sound-effects and motion lines combining to create this effect. As for the colors, they are bright and cheerful much like the creators' Aw Yeah! comics line. The backgrounds also have full art versus blank negative space which greatly helps the storytelling. These are yet more reasons for young and old readers to pick up this hardcover comic.

In my final opinion, while I thought the underwear and campfire jokes could have been more creative,  the overall feel of the comic is great. Thus I recommend you pick a copy up for a child in your life and one for yourself, while you continue recommending Art Baltazar & Franco's work to others.

Why I will not review Girl Meets World

Dear Readers,

 As the title states I will not be doing reviews of Girl Meets World. This is because I would like for younger reviewers to get more attention for their reviews of the show. I mainly watched Girl's parent show Boy Meets World through re-runs. While I could expound about the good and the bad of both shows, I would rather comment on the blogs of those developing cynical reviewers of the present. So to the parents and guardians of writers reading this please express constructive criticism regarding reviews of Girl Meets World. To the show's cast and crew I say "good luck and give us a premiere date already."



Writing this is not libel

   Due to Michael Vick having been found guilty in the past of animal abuse, I think "Michael Vicking It" should be used for at least some animal abuse. If there were a more famous animal abuse case than it would get that person as a label. However Michael Vick did the crime so in my mind animal abuse can be referred to as "Michael Vicking It!"


  The supplemental section is a relatively decent mix of materials. While the overall creative quality ranged from good to somewhat okay in ...
