TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3431:
(Vinnie) Today I am here to blog about "The Adventures of Faithboy" comic book, issue #1. It is about a boy facing his fears and staying away from evil with the help of God and his message. First off, this comic is Christian-based.
Here's what the publisher of the comic says about it:
"We are excited to bring you the first issue of “The Adventures of Faithboy!” Comic Book! Come meet Faithboy and his friends in four short stories in the premier issue. You’ll meet Faithboy and his buddy, Tim Tation – watch out for him! And you’ll meet Faithboy’s sidekick, godbumps, his adorable dog.
The stories are short, and for a younger audience. It would probably be better if an older sibling or relative read it to a young child. Each story starts with a bad situation, and David (Faithboy) does something bad. Then, he realizes what he did or is about to do is wrong, because he remembers scriptures from the Bible. He then does the right thing and the story ends.
The art is cartoony, and quite funny. I feel that it goes along with the theme nicely. It is drawn mostly in 2-D, but some objects are drawn in 3-D.
Honestly, I find it to be too young of an age group for me, but it isn't aimed for my age group. However, it is a good read to calm you down or cheer you up through a tough time.
Overall, I liked this comic. I give "The Adventures of Faithboy" a Very Fine minus (VF-), a 7.5 out of a 10.0 grade scale.
I read this comic book when it first came in, and thought it would be a good one for Vinnie to review.
This is a really good concept for a comic book, and has a target audience that could appreciate reading this series.
You can find it and the bobble-heads that the comic book is based on, at the web site, Faithboy.com.
I give this comic book a VERY FINE / VERY FINE PLUS (VF/VF+) 8.25 out of a 10.0 possible comic book grading scale.
Note: Vinnie makes it to as many comic cons with me as he can. He collects the 'Amazing Spider-Man' comic book series, but is open to read other titles from publishers that print titles that are age appropriate for him. He also has been attending 'behind the scenes' events, such as the one he blogged about ht here: Vinnie's Special 'Look at The Captain Rochester Party for the Artists' at the recent 2010 Comic-Con International: San Diego! He really had fun meeting and having dinner with Sergio Aragones, Bob Burden, Scott Shaw! and others there at this exclusive after hours Comic-Con Party in San Diego!
