TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3205:

Today's post is guest blogged by my youngest son, who attended all five days of the Comic-Con this year with us!

'My Take' On Berona's War Preview Book - by Vinnie 

This is my review of the Berona's War Preview Book which was one of the comics that my dad and I picked up at the San Diego Comic Con. It is published by Archaia Comics, and was created by Anthony Coffey and Jesse Labbé. Both, Anthony and Jesse, did part of the art and part of the story, but Anthony did the cover art (As stated in the credits on the Inside Front Cover.)

Here is what the book's promb blurb states the publication is to be about:

48 Pages
$3.95 US

Berona’s War Preview Book

"The BERONA’S WAR PREVIEW BOOK serves as an introduction to the upcoming hardcover releases BERONA’S WAR: FIELD GUIDE and BERONA’S WAR: FIGHT FOR AMITY, a pair of books introducing some of the wackiest, most violence-prone characters since “Spy Vs. Spy” and classic Looney Tunes! The PREVIEW features descriptions of each book, a rundown of key players in the war, three short stores and several pages of concept sketches and ideas."

Below are my thoughts about each part of the comic:

Front Cover: I liked the front cover art, because it shows two of the characters in the Berona's War series. It shows the "new-ish" looking drawing style while it shows old style of equipment, and creatures, so it is really fun to look at.

Inside Front Cover: The inside front cover has the title, credits, and publishing information. It also has Archaia's website as well as the address. It also states the "workforce" at Archaia including the President of the company, all the way to the interns, making sure almost everyone has some credit for being in that company.

Splash Page: The splash page gives interesting information, both about the book and human nature. It talks about why someone would pick up this book, and all sorts of other things.

Interior Pages: The interior pages, obviously contain the story which is illustrated and written beautifully. The first few pages of the interior pages also have each class of creature that would be found on the island of Berona, as this was which is where the story is et.

Inside Back Cover: The inside back cover has the usual ad, but this one is about another book from Archaia. I'm glad they had the ad be put on the inside back cover instead of the back cover, because most people will look at the back cover before the inside one. By having the ad on the inside, they can have the lure for the people to think about reading and buying the book.

Back Cover: The back cover had information about the creators, Jesse Labbé and Anthony Coffey, and about their previous works before Berona's War. It also gives information about the Berona's War series, which is the reason for people to even thumb through it to see the wonderful works of these creators. Overall, a really good promo "ashcan" of sorts that will attract people to buy their books. I know I will when I have some money to spend.

My comic book grade for this publication is a NEAR MINT MINUS (NM-) 9.2 on a 10.0 grading scale.
