Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents His Take On:
Pirate Cove's
Comic ConJob

TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3694 -   Well... Would you believe that... Here's yet another comic book that I found recently from our five days at the 2012 Comic-Con International: San Diego, (aka San Diego Comic Con or SDCC). 

That comic book is actually a "TPB" that I found at the Pirate Cove booth at Comic-Con. 

I would give you what this TPB is about per the publisher's promo... But I don't see one!

So I'll start my review next...

Front Cover -  The front cover is kind of strange... Until you flip to the Back Cover... It's a wrap-a-round cover, LOL!

Inside Front Cover - Blank.

Splash Page - The title page, like in a book.  The next couple of pages are the credit pages.

Interior Pages -  Starts right off with one full page of comics, as this was originally published as a web comic.  There is no real introduction of the characters, but I kind of get it after a few pages. The storylines are pretty good, and I do laugh with / at several pages.  ...

Back Interior Page - A special page on the author, with a link to the web comic page.

Inside Back Cover - Blank.

Back Cover - The back side of the wrap-a-round cover...

My take on this TPB? 

Well... Like I said above, this is from a web comic... Which is why the TPB is odd sized.  The fact that the cover is what stood out to me at the Comic-Con is why I picked up this book.  Not being familiar with the web comic nor the characters, it was just a little hard to pick up at first when reading it.

However, I found the storylines to be fun ones, and kind of true to comic cons that I have attended! So this TPB was a pretty good read.  Good enough for me to want to check out the web comic online in the near future. 

My rating for this TPB?  A Very Fine Plus  (VF+) 8.5 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.  Thanks to Joe D'Angelo for bringing this TPB to my attention at his booth at the 2012 Comic-Con International: San Diego!

You can find this TPB for sale at the Pirate Cove web site.
