A Tip Top Baggage Review Finale - Five Stars from Comic Heroes!

Hip-hip-HOORAY, it's Friday ('Black Friday' in the States - a bit like Boxing day, it's their busiest shopping day of the year).

Time to celebrate the passing of another week in style, and what better way than to round up our triple-bill review-a-thon. We've heard from online review sites and young readers, and now it's time to turn our attention to the cream of British print review magazines, Comic Heroes!

This bi-monthly title launched last year and has rapidly become a firm favourite among UK comic fans. Issue (number 9) was a super-sized Spiderman special.
Packaged in a card slipcase, the magazine focuses on all aspects of the comic medium, from the latest releases, movie and game adaptations, international events and, naturally, REVIEWS!!!

Imagine our delight, when we learnt that Baggage had made its way into the pages of this fine periodical.
There was some whooping, especially when we spotted those five all important little red stars!

It appears, although I may be reading between the lines, that reviewer James Lovegrove rather enjoyed our second comic outing.

"Robin Etherington's script deftly orchestrates the chaos. Not a single plot element is wasted. Events occurring in the opening pages have ramifications right through the book. This is nothing less than sublime comics storytelling."

Oh, James ... you go too far!

"And his brother Lorenzo's art is a dream. He makes a funny-animal world utterly believable, peppering his panels with sight gags and humorous detail."

You really shouldn't ... but do go on...

"Baggage could have come from the pens of Goscinny and Uderzo (creators of Asterix) in their prime. It really is that good. Kids will love it, and if you're an adult it will make you feel like a kid again, in all the right ways."

I'll be honest with you, folks, it doesn't get much better than that.
Thank you James and all the team at Comic Heroes for featuring our work among the big titles and popular series.
