All Ages Comics ^^ 7/16/08

The animation style of drawing and coloring a fairly prominant this week.  Goblin Chronicles has a very Disney-esque animation style to it.  I don’t know if the  Cartoon Network style is really popular, but it seems to get the viewers, and therefore the readers.  Then there’s Dreamland Chronicles with it’s CGI, almost action figure look.  But it’s not Robot Chicken (Thankfully.  My kids love that show, even though they shouldn’t.)  But art can say just as much about a title as the story, sometimes more.

Picks:

Sabrina Volume 2 #95 – In 2004, Archie Comics made the bold move to change the art style of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.  With artist Tania de Rio at the pen, Sabrina stepped out of her everyday double life, and into the world of magical girls!  Now, she battles magical monsters, goes to strange new worlds, and still has to balance her love life.  With the help of her friends, Sabrina has managed to break the evil hold the dark duality wand had on her.  But to erase the darkness from her, she must use the healing wand to balance it out.  She starts by restoring the memories of those afflicted before her “dark detour”, but even afterwards, they seem to be holding back some secret from her.  This is a good title for girls to start in either comics or manga, or both!

Dreamland Chonicles #1 – This title started as a webcomic by Scott Christian Sava and has now become a monthly comic.  Done in the CGI style, it tells the story of Alexander Carter, who, after finding a necklace, is able to go to the childhood land of his dreams.  It is a world of fantasy with dragons, fairies and giants.  Alexander then embarks on a quest to save Dreamland from war with the Nightmare realm.  There are over 700 pages of story already done, which can still be read online, but having a book to hold is so much better!  This is a true all ages title.  Both kids and parents alike can appreciate this title.
