Reviews Opinion

If you're looking for a way to introduce your kids to the world of comic books, then Kings Of Overgrove is an essential purchase. While there are a handful of superhero comics available for a younger audience, it's fair to say that these are of varying quality, and not everyone can justify forking out $2.99 a go for a weekly or monthly series! While it's quite clearly aimed at a younger audience, Kings Of Overgrove is still an enjoyable enough read and the themes within (particularly about friendship) send a great message to younger readers. Writer Arel Herbrand's script is fairly light, but no more so than any other children's book, and an awful lot of story is packed in to the 130 or so pages. Dave Nielsen's art is simple and visually pleasing, and is in fact fairly similar to that of Pasquel Ferry (The Mighty Thor), ensuring that it keeps your kids attention throughout!

An enjoyable tale of friendship and adventure, Kings Of Overgrove is full of weird and wonderful characters and locations; my five year old nephew LOVED it and it's not hard to imagine the graphic novel making a great film.
