This was a strange comic book that I just enjoyed the hell out of.

It is sort of hard to describe the reading experience but I am going to give it a shot. The book is a combination of super heroics and sort of slice of life drama.

It reminds me of Dan DeCarlo Archie comics with that classic look.

The book follows Ambar and Alana who are the Santos Sisters. They go about their lives fighting various villains.

There are some fun and funny ones that they encounter. Some of the villains are downright crazy, especially the horny men covered in honey.

I have to admit I laughed out loud a few times just by the characters alone.

There isn’t a lot of character development going on here but that’s okay. Once you know the basics, you can dive right into any of the stories. The good news is that most of the stories are fairly short, just a couple of pages at most. It makes it fairly accessible and easy to understand what is happening in each and every story.

The bad part of something made in this structure is that there isn’t a lot to grab onto. It doesn’t also feel vital to read every story.

Some stories even end on a cliffhanger and you are suddenly in another story completely. That made it a little bit tough for me to get a foothold on this book.

Still, it is all in good fun. The book is generally enjoyable and I look forward to future installments. The writing is sharp and the artwork is consistently well done.

All in, this is a fun and light read for the summer months and it is definitely a book that will leave a smile on your face.

RATING: B+
