I hope that one day I can meet Mr. Haywire and he can tell me which parts of this story are true and what Mr. Thompson is like in person because he seems so nice in book form. I am going to write a book like this some day and it will have an adventurer who likes to wear an extra large sombrero and has a sidekick made of pepper jack cheese so if he gets stuck on an island he can eat his sidekick.
I've been following the Rip Haywire comic online for a while now and I absolutely love it. It's like a combination of MacGyver, Mark Trail, and well a lit bit of Mark Twain mixed in. So I was glad to be able to pick up this book and read a tale separate from the comic and boy is this book worth picking up. It's chock full of humor, action, and intrigue that just kept me turning the pages to the end. In many ways the world is a parody (a really, really funny parody) of Mark Trail/MacGyver, which is fun to read. Dan creates a well paced tale and really interesting characters. And his sense of humor is absolutely fantastic. The little quips that Rip and Cobra throw out at each other kept me laughing. One of my favorite parts of the story is right at the beginning, where TNT tells the tale about how he met Rip (and makes himself the hero of course.) It's a great story and I can't wait to see what happens next.
I love the artwork in this series the colors are dead on perfect and the design of each character is absolutely fantastic.Read more ›
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
There’s a lot of subtle humor in here, don’t know if the kids in this age group would pick them all up, but it makes it more fun for the adults. He’s a cross between James Bond and Lara Croft, and sometimes the flashbacks go so over the top it’s truly hilarious. No doubt the most important lesson he learned was about teamwork, even with (shudder) girls!
After the story there’s some historical tidbits about people and places mentioned.
