Genres, cultures, and iconic weapons collide in this issue. Which is better; crabs or lobsters? Nunchucks or whips? Continue reading Regular Show #34 Review
The Story: Last issue Rigby and High-Five Ghost went to find a movie to watch that they loved from their childhood, and something weird happens. It’s great, I promise but I don’t want to spoil it.
The back-up story shows Mordecai and Rigby using a cook book to bake a casserole so Mordecai can impress his girl-friend CJ. Then something extra weird happens when they use the wrong ingredients. Again, I don’t want to spoil it.
If you’re not familiar with Cartoon Network’s hit Regular Show, change that right away. The basic premise is this group of friends will be doing something mundane (playing basketball, watching funny internet videos, going to concerts) and each time stuff hits the fan and they have to deal with it. It’s great stuff, playing up 80s era jokes and fads but with today’s awareness and the most important part, friendship.
It’s a deal breaker for me if these types of comics deviate too much from what I love about the show (stand-alone stories, distinct styles, unique characters,etc) but thankfully (Ka)Boom’s been consistent with Regular Show the comic and made it a great buy for fans and/or young readers.
The art by Allison Strejlau and Andrew Greenstone is a little grimier and darker than the cartoon’s, but helps add personality to the stories and keep the property fresh.
Funny, quirky, and worth the price tag, Regular Show #24 is anything but.
(It is 24 of something, in terms of issues and awesome!)
