Comics Review Time!

My local library has Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer and Pinocchio and the Great Puppet Theater in the YA/ Teen section.  Both are well worth your time.

Art-wise the books are very much in the vein of Mike Mignola's Hellboy, but artist Dusty Higgins brings his own enjoyably quirky sensibilities to the story.  For example, Jiminy Cricket looks more like an abstract bunny than an actual insect, but it totally works.

This is a funny, imaginative comic that's a lot more fun than Once Upon a Time or Fables.  Don't take my word for it: the great Chris Sims of Comics Alliance gave it a favorable review.

I give this comic five wooden-nose-stakes up.
