    With its joke filled, laid back dialogue, fun world building, and non-preachy connection to real world issues, Welcome to Showside #2 is another stellar showing for Ian McGinty and Fred Stresing. Toulouse Stone even gets a complete arc as he goes from a timid, little nerd boy to a monster fighter like his sister and father, but with an extra side of compassion to go with his can of whoop ass. Also, who can pass up a book where the main character rocks hamburger swim trunks. Read Full Review

    If you missed the first issue and you're looking for wholesome, yet fun and video game inspired entertainment, then check out Welcome to Showside. I know it won't be for everyone. Maybe you looked at this and thought, "oh this is just like that one book and the other." Well, it is a little, but in the best possible way. Read Full Review

    Welcome to Showside #2 advances the series' overall quality with McGinty'sunique take on friendship, fitting in, and working together. This series is meant for all ages, and though that phrase can be a turn-off for some adults, it really shouldn't be. Fans of shows like Steven Universe will find the story's sweetfamiliarity endearing, and what's more, it can add some much-needed levity to all of ourreading lists. (A quality, lighthearted read like this can do much to cleanse the palette after absorbing countless issues of superhero violence.)As we go further into the Nexus, I know there will be even morediscoverin this world of demon monsters and adorable protagonists.I look forward to seeing where McGinty will take us next.

    I was actually looking forward to this book, I enjoy fun little basic animation titles like this but sadly I was left feeling like I'd just need preached to by the PC brigade. Read Full Review
