    But Why Tho? - lizzylynngarcia Nov 14, 2018

    Whitley writes an incredibly likable Wisp. Additionally, Williams' art adds a lot of whimsy to the story with its cartoonish design. In a book called Rainbow Brite, color is very important. While a lot of this issue had to rely on grays, the end panelsare beautifully colored and drawn.Pinto's coloring within the last three pages of the book elevates the book entirely. The last pages smartly feature little dialogue and instead focus on Wisp's expressions and transformation. Overall, I highly recommend this book for someone looking for a lighter read as well as fans of Rainbow Brite both new and old. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this book but the post read impression I had afterward was that issues 1-2 needed to be combined into a double sized comic. Audiences would have loved it especially since Rainbow Brite doesn't technically show up until this issue. 

    Enough with the spilled milk. 

    Wisp and Twink are on the run. After escaping some of the colorless creatures they stop and provide some exposition regarding the situation. Twink says that each "Color" has a guard but the color guards have been captured and the "Color" mines are being sealed off. This is why the locations have the washed out appearance. 

    Wisp also explains that while each color has a guardian there is a champion that can control all colors "Rainbow B more
