We get a little glimpse into the different realms as the kids are split up and have to survive on their own.

From the very first page, this issue was brilliant “How to stop eating your friends” fantastic! The Wildlands looks really cool with the animals anthropomorphized and terrified of human interaction, it’s obviously harder for some animals to temper their instincts while interacting with others. And when tieing a tie.

King Kid always felt dodgy to me but even I underestimated how much of a douche he is! He is definitely going to be tough for Shazam to beat. All the worlds so far seem pretty cool on the surface but have a pretty dark side lurking, I wonder if monsterland is going to turn out to be actually rather pleasant (can’t see it) everyone one seems to be in equal amounts of peril right now with no way to reunite, at least then they might have a fighting chance.

I wonder if the return of Billys “Dad” and the surprise appearance on the final page are connected and if it means help is on the way or not? Either way, the next few issues are looking likely to be even better!

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
