    Poppy! and the Lost Lagoon is an interesting read. The story does seem to drag a bit as there were many pages that seemed to focus more on the scene rather than the dialogue. However, these moments give you a breather and allow you to reflect on the characterization. Kindt's ability to give a character more emotional depth than any usual kid's title makes it a fun read as well as a deeper read than most. That combined with the Hurtt's simple art style makes it a good standalone title for all ages, and has something to offer for any audience. For the younger reader, they get a fun interplay between generations as seen in Poppy's and Colt's bantering, while at the same time the older reader can appreciate that within this interplay, there is a sort of warmth and depth of genuine care they have for one another.

    Matt Kindt and Brian Hurtt are such skilled storytellers they're able to take all these familiar elements and remix them to feel mostly fresh and enthralling. The energy in "Poppy! and the Lost Lagoon" is high and it's a fun read from beginning to end. It's a nice testament to the serials that came before " from Indiana Jones to Tintin to Corto Maltese to Nathan Drake " while still able to stand on its own legs. As the series goes forward, I hope Kindt and Hurtt explore Poppy and Colt a little more, but as it stands, this is a very enjoyable and lively book. Read Full Review
