Angry Birds #1 is 100% less frustrating than the game is. BUT is it as much fun? Let’s find out…
Writer Jeff Parker is the PERFECT fit for this comic! He gives us three shorter stories in the issue that remind me a lot of some old Looney Tunes or Tom & Jerry cartoons. He gives each and every bird a unique and different personality, and every single one of them is pretty funny. The pigs, obviously, play the villains of each story. The best part about the book is that it’s FUNNY. I’m not sure that I’d want to read a serious, superhero-like Angry Birds comic — in fact, I know I wouldn’t. This comic keeps the tone of the game, which is light-hearted, joke filled, and FUN!!
Remember Muppet Babies? I loved that show. And being KISS fans, we’re thrilled with the announcement from IDW that they have ANOTHER new comic book about KISS coming out: KISS Kids.
Coming this Fall, KISS Kids will focus on the KISS Characters as children as they take on nemeses such as Principal Elder, and Wicked Lester. A preview of KISS Kids will on the back cover of all four issues of the upcoming Kiss Solo series, starting on April 10, when Kiss Solo #1: The Demon is released.

This weeks chapter in IDW Publishing’sMars Attacks crossover is Mars Attacks The Real Ghostbusters! TONS of fans have been waiting for a Real Ghostbusters comic, and I’m happy to say, it’s here and it doesn’t disappoint!
Writer Erik Burnham steps flawlessly from the monthly Ghostbusters title to this long-anticipated one-shot. First off, I can’t believe Sony let IDW do this, but I’m sure glad they did! Anyone who’s watched the Real Ghostbusters cartoon knows and loves these classic characters. They’re not quite as dead-on to the movie characters that Burnham writes so well on the monthly. But, they are true to the spirit of the cartoon, and it’s fantastic. Burnham comes up with a great way to involve the Martians into a modern day job for “the boys”, and it works on a lot of different levels. What’s especially pleasing is the winks and nods to the old Real Ghostubsters comic published in the ’80s. There’s the talking “No Ghost Logo” and what would a Real Ghostbusters comic be without SLIMER?! Wrong, that’s what. This is a fun, old-school read from start to finish!
