I wanted to like this one. The concept was cute and the illustrations are interesting and drawn in a way that will appeal to kids. However, there are a few things that bug me:

1) Some of the names of things: Onomatoland and Bubtopia Arena, for example. This is just like in science fiction novels where the characters have unpronounceable names. Its confusing, and in this case, there is no explanation, which goes into the second reason I was bugged by this comic book.
2) Borp Holes: These are holes

Love the clean, clear illustrations of Bumperboy and his interesting world. (He travels between worlds through "borp holes" with his companion, Bumperpup.) These are great for preschoolers who are excited about graphic novels-- safe (there's a bully of a bird who steals Bumperboy's marbles, but that's as rough as this title gets) and easy to read the story from the pictures alone. We also love the sequel and would like to buy some of the mini-comics from Bumperboy's website!

This is, in my opinion, the single greatest graphic novel ever written in the history of graphic novels. That it is out of print is a shame. Some publisher should pick it up and reprint it in color, as was done with Jeff Smith's Bone books.

Cute for 2nd or 3rd graders. Like the smaller format and simple line drawings.
