    But those are just quibbles. This comic is a fun, action-packed romp, and well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Armand Villavert again delivers some very simple, kid-friendly cartooning work that is brought to life by colorists Carlos Carrasco and Andre Poulain. The color is quite honestly the star of the show in this issue, particularly in the multiple action sequences scattered throughout the book. The color is more reserved during the scenes with the children, but all bets are off during the more kinetic sequences. Bright oranges, purples and blues dominate your eyeballs in the best way possible. Villavert shines in these sequences as well, noticeably having more fun drawing balls-to-the-wall and designing all sorts of crazy characters than he does drawing classroom scenes. Understandable, and the result is the action scenes acting as the standout sequences of this issue. Read Full Review

    A bright, shiny breath of fresh air. I'm really enjoying this comic after two issues and it'll be fun to see the creators continue to flesh out this universe. Perfect art for this type of story too! Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jun 30, 2011

    The art throughout the book is and full of energy. Villavert also provides the characters - especially the kids - with sharp, iconic designs as well, though I don't get why the Red Octopus is, you know, green and yellow. The surreal colors suit the oddball, corrupt qualities of the characters, but I'm still bothered by the fact that we don't have a strong sense of the school itself, its physical structure and layout. The action seems to unfold in a psychedelic void. It feels as though the artist hasn't mapped out the school, and doing so might lead to a clearer sense of place and dimension. Read Full Review
