Unlike the movie where motion and sound make it easier for the audience to follow the story, this book obviously doesn't carry the same elements for readers in a sense that it HAS to rely heavily on visual images. This doesn't mean it's bad, but sometimes the story can get confusing, because it's hard to tell what's happening exactly or what curious innocent little WALL-E's doing. This comic book might require time to "read" and understand in order to slowly grasp the story overall. Of course, this is how I approached this, and you might as well just flip the pages at a much faster paste, but why ruin it if you don't put effort and try to immerse yourself in the environment which you've learned from watching the movie? You, as a reader who has seen the movie should be able to fill in the empty silence as you flip the pages.
Just like how the beloved movie carried the "voiceless" presentation in the beginning, this comic book goes on to tell the story of WALL-E before the events in the movie and how he collected some of his knick-knacks as seen in his home, such as the Christmas lights, the talking Bass fish, and so on. We also get a glimpse of how he met his cockroach friend, Hal, as well as how he ultimately decided to take his directive seriously as his fellow units start to break down until he became the last WALL-E robot we've come to know and love.
All in all, because dialogue and narration are basically non-existent, young kids probably won't be spending much time on this, and older kids might find an easier appreciation of the story. I do admit that the book does end fast and you'll be done "reading" rather quick, making it seem like the money isn't quite worth it, but this was a nice prequel addition and a little treat for those who want more WALL-E stories. The back of the book also contains a cover gallery of the first four issues that were released separately. This is the first (of two) conveniently collection of the four issues/chapters after all.
