On the face of it this is a really fun issue but look just that little bit closer and the cracks start to form!

The kids believed that they had all night while Victor and Rosa were downstairs but with the sudden arrival of Billys “Dad”, they have noticed the kids are missing how bad that gets all depends on how time passes in Funland! Speaking of Funland it seems to be a child’s dream, a whole world that’s a fairground what could be better? But a few thighs suggest a darker side to it like that lite creepy dude they meet off the train! He cannot be a good guy surely and why was ome of the kids terrified to turn 18?? This is going to be interesting and thats on one of the lands to discover.

I love the brightness and the colour involved in this it really gives it a happy feel to it amd makes it fun to read and makes the darker moments more intense as it clashes nicely with the style of artwork, the worry of the parents and the entire Dr. Sivana scenes are all darker scenes all the more sinister beavuase they are so colourful and bright. There are some very cool ideas at play here and the opportunity to be a massive story being told as each world gets explored and of course, what’s with the boarded up world, man i am so intrigued already its ridiculous so many questions i cant wait til the next issue to see where it goes.

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
