I reviewed another book by the author:Wallace the Brave by Will Henry and looked forward to getting into this one.
The first few panels were nothing special and I have to admit that I was a little disappointed but then the story picks up pace. There is not much of a linear progression in terms of the story and for the most part, you can pick up anywhere by picking a random page but a few have a continuing storyline.
The cast is the same, but a little older and there seems to be a stray seagull that behaves like its part of their gang in a lot of panels (watch out for it!). Wallace is our central character, his brother Sterling is a little older and in the age of eating anything he can get his hands on. His father and mother seem less tired than the last time I met them and they are a very lovable set of people. Spud(friend and sidekick) is more obsessed with food and less neurotic than I remember. Amelia is part of their trio as they go on adventures both purposeless and purposeful (like to hunt a sasquatch).
It is a fun set of panels, age is no consequence to enjoy this lot. The book is still available to request on NetGalley (click on the cover page above). I highly recommend it to those who like comic strips in general.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience.
