Reviews Misfit City Vol. 1

  • Tink Magoo is bad at reviews
    A FEMALE GOONIES RIP OFF?! FUCK YES! I'm all over this like genital warts on a frat boy.After : 4.5 starsThere isn't much to dislike here - the kinda Goonies rip off Gloomers references, the art, the all female leads. If I were to come up with a graphic novel this is what I'd be aiming for. But man do I wish I had waited til more issues were out. I have very little patience and it's just started getting exciting.

    It's like Lumberjanes with an older cast. It's like all those 80s, 90s, etc. movies with male groups of friends that you grew up wishing GIRLS HAD. It's like... basically all you could ask for. I do wish the characters had a bit more depth, there are a lot of them and they don't get developed too much, but it is only 4 issues. I have high hopes for this series. Very Very high hopes!

    A cute, fun mystery adventure comic. Nothing really deep or surprising about it, but it's an engaging, endearing and thrilling ride nonetheless, filled to the treasure trove brim with interesting female characters. Set in a cove, which was new to me in graphic novel reading, 'Misfit City' is an homage to 'The Goonies' with female characters as central. Such great diversity - in race, shapes and sizes for the funny-to-smart-to-sarcastic-and-deadpa...

    A Goonies reference wrapped in a Goonies reference covered in everything you love about the Boom! Box imprint of comics. Great first issue.

    What happens when you live in the town where they filmed The Goonies and you have to deal with fans overrunning your burger shops, libraries and museums desperate for any film lore or souvenir they can find and then you find a treasure map? I actually have no idea, but I can't wait to find out!

    When I found out that this comic references the 80s cult classic film "The Goonies" (disguised in the comic as "The Gloomies"), I knew I had to read it. Obviously the Goonies is one of the best films of all time. This book was so much fun!It is full of charm, humor, and great characters. It's like Scooby Doo meets the Goonies in the best possible way. Can't wait for the next volume!
  • Becky Gust
    At first, I wasn't sure if I really cared for at the comic. Took me a moment or two to get into the storyline. I wasn't sure at first that I was a fan of the graphics. But by the end of it, I was hooked! I can't wait for the next issue to come out!

    Ich mochte es. Aber nur 3 Sterne, weil es gleich am Anfang zu Ende war, bevor sie überhaupt auf Schatzsuche gehen, und man den nächsten Band kaufen muss. In diesem hier lernt man nur die Charaktere kennen.

    Like the Lumberjanes, but with a more thought-out plot and for an older crowd
  • Andreea
    I like Misfit City a lot, but it could be more captivating... if you know what I mean.
