While Torres's script captured the magic and charm of the Wall-E movie in the same way that Roger Langridge successfully manages to translate the televised variety entertainment of The Muppet Show to the printed page, I'm not necessarily as excited about forthcoming issues of this Pixar comic. While Langridge had a diverse array of weird characters and circumstances to mine for future stories, the premise of Wall-E is far more limiting. This story is set before the events of the movie, so the audience knows where the story lead eventually lead. I don't know if Boom! Studios plans an ongoing Wall-E title or a series of limited series a la The Muppet Show; I'm not sure anyone could pull it off. Mind you, that doesn't detract from the strength of this issue, which stays true to the source material while exploring the title character's "origin," of sorts. Read Full Review
So how could Boom! get me to return to the Wall-E comic? By giving me enough bang for my buck. I'd continue to by this title either at a lower price point or by increasing the page count. Additionally, I'd really enjoy an anthology style book where various artists and writers could offer their unique take on the character. The creators should be allowed to tell stories from different times and areas of the Wall-E universe perhaps a story about EVE's early days or a story aboard the Axiom before Wall-E's arrival. Although I was unsatisfied, this is ultimately a Boom! Kids title. An younger reader who had this title bought for them may find it much more enjoyable. For me, I'll just pop in my Wall-E Blu Ray.
