Every Kid’s Dream!

This was an immensely satisfying issue, and I think I have an inkling as to why: It contains three childhood fantasies! First there is the fruit, which gives Akiko and her friends the ability to fly. I mean, c’mon – what kid doesn’t dream of flying? Then there is the kingdom of nice, tiny people. And finally there is the cool monster which turns out to be a great friend! Yes, I used to dream about all of those things. That is another reason I enjoy comic books so much – they allow me to live out dreams that otherwise never came true. See – comics are good for us in many ways!


“Her Majesty” : When Akiko #6 ended we saw Mr. Beeba chased away by a cat monster! This issue starts off with Spuckler eating a lot of the floaty-fruit so he can go after his friend. This leaves Akiko, Poog and Gax all alone in the forest. No problem, they build a fire and go to sleep – only to be awakened by an army of tiny soldiers who capture the 3 companions! They are marched across a landscape of tiny villages to the huge palace of the diminutive Queen Pwip. The queen, it turns out, is really nice – and she also has Spuckler and Beebs in jail. She lets the 2 guys out and all of them enjoy a nice cup of tea. Finally, the group of adventurers must depart, but not before the queen gives them a map to the Great Wall of Trudd – which is where they head.

My 2 Cents:

  • Story: 5 stars – This was probably one of my favorite Akiko stories! I loved the forest, the floaty-fruit and the Lilliputian type of kingdom. Very cool stuff!
  • Art: 5 stars – The black & white images were very crisp, detailed and imaginative! Excellent art yet again!
  • Fun Factor: 5 stars – A great story idea, combined with superb art, make for one awesome comic book!
