Meh, it's cool
on May 30, 2015
I think the series rocked my world when it first came out, and I'm going to credit that to post natal hormones. As with all tie in merchandise, for someone who is not a fanboy, it is what it is. Tie in merchandise.
Does it gloss over major questions and issues? Like why is Princess Bubblegum so messed up?
It's basically like a children's coffee table book.
My ten year old, who's been watching the series since it began and reading the comics from issue one, skimmed over it and was like "meh, it's cool." And now it lives on an end table. That's after he saw the Amazon preview of it and he was all like, "yeah, get it. I'll pay you for it with my allowance."
The size was okay. I was expecting like art book size, like tabloid size.
It was okay.
Materials could have been more radical.
I think smart kids watch the show and maybe the book, while fun, was a little too "babyfied."
