It was fun and refreshing and terribly cute.

I mean, we ll now the crew has more fun right? The adventure.

As mentioned, I sually read comics that are a little more dark and epressing, so I ’ m neve sure if it was because th story ha so lovel and cute, but it did feel a little too juvenile at times for my tastes. -- Overall, this as verything that I needed in a comic at the moment.

Th was cute, fun and all ind of adorable.

What I was expecting/hoping for was something like Drama by Raina Telgemier, but it has this magic dimension.

Kind of in the Lumberjanes direction, but even as good ( I thought, but the kids in he house do n't get that distinction; they like both) And yes, I as an actor in high school and a actor/backstager in college, and directed plays when I was high school teacher, so I related to all of tha, and as I am seeing productions now through my kids' experiences, too.Thanks to his teacher Scott Snyder, Tynion has largely been a Batman guy, but here he goes younger and sillier, and it works for him.
