The Sound of Thunder: 11/09/22
The Sound of Thunder by J. Torres and Faith Erin Hicks (Illustrations) (2014) is the conclusion of the Bigfoot Boy graphic novel trilogy. The ravens have the totem and the wolves want it. Meanwhile the forest is being destroyed by developers. Can Rufus, Penny and their squirrel friend save the day?
This volume fills in the blanks in the world building to explain how the totem came to be and why Rufus of all people is the one who can wield it. Honestly, I wasn't expecting such a tidy end and found it refreshing.
There's also an environmental plot where Rufus needs to regain control of the totem to stop the development. I was reminded of Hoot by Carl Hiaasen (2002)
