Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3771 - It's now Tuesday morning, and I have several errands to run this morning... Into the afternoon!
So I want to post this review blog on Zenescope Entertainment's TPB that compiles all five issues of 'The Jungle Book'.
I've already review blogged issues #1 -4 in an earlier post, (blog #3716), back on Friday, September 14, 2012. I really enjoyed reading the first four issues, and it was only recently that issue #5 and the TPB came in.
What's this story arc about?
"Grimm Fairy Tales presents The Jungle Book - A pirate ship carrying four children crashes on the shore of a mysterious and merciless jungle. Each child is taken by a separate tribe of animals as a means to keep the peace between the species. It is a peace that will not last... Fifteen years later the children have now become young adults and each will have to face the destiny that awaits them in the unforgiving jungle. A place where only the strong will survive. Zenescope brings you their newest reinvention of a classic tale that is going to blow you away!"
The ordering info is as follows:
Paperback: 172 pages
I found the conclusion of the five issue arc to be satisfying, and a good ending for this series.
The art was fine, the colors good, and all in all, this was a good series to read.
I liked the twists that the writer took with the story, and the storyline kept me guessing as to what would happen next. This was definitely not a standard superhero comic book, but a good jungle genre story.
I'm giving this TPB a Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM) 9.0 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.
Plus, while you are at the web site, check out the other series that Zenescope has published this past year, and the years before.
My own earlier review blogs on several of those publications can be found at this link, as Zenescope Entertainment does have several good series for your reading pleasure!
