Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This fantasy manga presents the right mix of familiar tropes along with new ideas that should capture the imaginations of more than a few readers. Pascoe's story stars young Sama, a boy whose father is in the hospital following a heart attack. Sama wants to mend his father's health, but feels powerless in the face of the situation. A strange old man tells him of Undertown, a magical place that holds, among other things, the Sugar Stone, a magical object that could help Sama's father. After transporting to Undertown, Sama is thrown right into the middle of a land at war. Insects and Furmen, such as the anthropomorphic rabbit and hedgehog Sama befriends, vie for control of the Sugar Stone. Undertown's real strength lies in how all these concepts are introduced with a breakneck pace and with grand strokes. Myler's art makes sure that this is a book with plenty of action and characters in dramatic poses. The situations sometimes overwhelm the art but most of the time all the figures and their adventures are rendered in a very readable style. (July)

I bought this book at a yard sale today. I just finished it. I would have given it more stars, if it were a standalone instead of an incomplete series.

The back of the book gives a good description of the book's plot, so I won't write one.
The book is well made, the artwork is good and the story flows at a good pace. It's a bit, um, well, if your getting this for your child, you might want to preview (flip through and make sure the artwork is ok; blood and such) the whole book at a library before you buy. I think it's very interesting. The plot certainly kept me entertained, and when I finished it I looked up the second book online. It's not available. I hate it when I'm interested in a book and it never gets gets an ending. At this point, I don't see much hope for it since I couldn't find anything about the next volume's availability dated within a year of today (though the writter said something about volume 3 being finished in a very recent twitter post).

So here's my advice: if you're thinking about getting this book, go to volume 2's amazon page and sign up to be notified when the next volume is available. If and when it is available, flip through the first book at the library to make sure it interests you and is suitable to you. Then buy both books to show support and hope the 3rd one makes it to the press. (here's the page: http://www.amazon.com/Undertown-2-Jim-Pascoe/dp/1427807655/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1271520277&sr=8-2 )

I hope this helped you.

I just read half of the book, It was good for the most part. It is about a kid who is about to loose his father who has a heart problem and needs a transplant to become better. The kid hears about a wonderful town called Undertown. And is told there is something called a suger stone that will help his father at the town. So the kid does what any kid in these manga books, he goes to Undertown and find out it's crawling with bugs trying to take over the town and there are people in hiding. It's good book, it shows friendship and how a kid can make a difference. I hope to get more books later in the future. It seems like this is the first book out of it's series. I hope for it took come out with more.
