Continuing the strange adventures of poor young Darian, stuck on the alien world of Formera, this next sizable volume advances the plot tremendously while the action never relents. Following the abduction of Keisha by the evil Mezteck, and the near death of Darian himself at the hands of that same evil Mezteck, we are given glimpses into past scenes of Darian's life back home that provide much explanation for how the hot-headed kid hero's mind really works. Additionally, the character of Hippie Young Man is given a chance at redemption, and we learn that the girl behind the mask is actually one of the good guys. Dobson furthers his colorful yarn, having shown much of the Formera world in the last volume, he now wisely focuses on exhibition of the origins and motives behind his growing cast of players. He keeps his forward momentum though, with Darian desperately trying to beat the bad guy and rescue the girl. Even as we learn some of the magical mechanics of how Formera operates, the comedic dialogue runs its course just fine. Lots of positive energy, both in the basic framework of the narrative and in the development of his core characters. While there are scary things such as awakening corpses on spears in this volume, the overall tone remains generally lighthearted and adventurous. Some drama, but no melodrama. This is an all-ages/family-friendly tale, and the good guys will surely win in the end. Which hopefully won't be anytime soon. Dobson's art continues to exhibit his manga/anime influences, with an effective style that is as animated as it is easy to digest. This is the manner of good, action-packed fun that Saturday morning cartoon enthusiasts have been deprived of for years.Read more ›
