I’m way behind on comics, so I’m going to work to catch up over the next little bit. I bought this one this summer and just haven’t gotten to writing about it yet, but here we go!
I enjoy this cover. It displays whimsy, adventure, and has two things most kids(and let’s be real, adults too) love: dinosaurs and space! The juxtaposition of a dinosaur in a space suit standing on the face of a planet gets the imagination going. Stuff like this is why my kids love this series, and why I love it too.
The art for this series is a lot more cartoony than a lot of other comics I read. This is a good thing, as it fits the character and the subject matter better. This isn’t a dark gritty crime book, nor is it one where the whole universe hangs in the balance. It’s a fun book full of vibrant colour and fun visuals!
It has a T-Rex in a spacesuit fighting space fleas! When you can have that in bright, fun colours, you don’t need anything else!
This is part two of a story arc in which Lunella(Moon Girl), hears a distress call from deep space. Upon going to investigate she discovers that the distress call has come from the moon itself, who is a sentient satellite! We discover that Illa(the moon), has been separated from her father, and wants Lunella to reunite them. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Lunella has left the head of a Doom-bot to direct robot copies of herself to ensure that no one realizes she’s gone.
I’m actually quite curious to see how this arc turns out, and with how this issue ends, the next one could be a doozy!
