It was the day after Christmas when the mysterious box began to ask its question again. "What do you wish for? What do you wish for??" it insisted. This time, to Penny's best friend, Elizabeth. And that's where the trouble really began. With Elizabeth's small, simple wish.

    A surprisingly good story. I'm very curious to know where Michael Stock will bring us now, as the "original story" created by his daughter has been told in the first two issues of the comic: will his creativity be on pair with young Nico's? Read Full Review

    While the plot progression and increased drama in this second issue are both appreciated, there is one weird quirk to the storytelling in that there's a lack of consistency to the apparent age of Penny and her friend Elizabeth. Physically, they shift in height and body proportions throughout the issue. Even their vocabulary level has a tendency to bounce back and forth. None of this significantly harms the issue, but hopefully we'll see a bit more consistency in tehse areas as the series progresses. Read Full Review

    It's a fun and creative story, but Penny's world beyond her bedroom and house still remains unexplored. Read Full Review

    Most kids, and let's face it, even most adults, would be tempted to go hog-wild with wishing once they knew what they had. Penny has gone more than 24 hours without wishing for anything that could be considered personal gain. Penny is instantly aware of the creepiness and the immense power of the box, and it freaks her out instead of swelling her sense of power. Her more impulsive and curious friend Elizabeth is more typical. She's Penny's foil and when she fights with Penny, she also provides the first bad consequence of the box being used. In Penny's characterization, Stock's story may be headed in the direction of something new, but it's too early to tell. For now, "Penny Dora and the Wishing Box" #2 is an interesting but uneven reading experience. Read Full Review
