Comics Squad: Recess!: 11/30/14

cover art

Comics Squad: Recess! edited by Jennifer L. Holm is an anthology of comics for elementary school aged readers. The book contains 8 comics including the popular ones like Babymouse, Squish, and Lunch Lady.

As with the afore mentioned comics, this anthology also relies on the single color design, orange as it so happens. Be prepared to read everything in an eye searing orange.

If you can do that, you'll find eight short comics all centered on the topic of recess. For Babymouse, that means being thwarted by her own bad luck, bad attitude, and bad decision making. For another it means becoming a ninja. And there's a chance to find magic nuts.

It is what it is. If you're a fan of these comics, you'll like this collection. Readers new to comics but curious enough to try small samples might inspired to pick up the actual series. But for most everyone, it's probably safe to just pass on this book.

Three stars
