Written by Guest Contributor: Jordan North Cartoon based comics are a strange indulgence. They’re for some reason harder to separate from their source material when read, even if I could write a list all day on how cartoons and comics are different. It’s just hard two judge them as two different things from a review standpoint with the winner always being the original. But! On a rare day a comic-toon can stand apart, this is how, as done by this masterful KaBoom creative team.
The art: Artist Allison Strejlau gives Regular Show an “ almost the same but not quite” coat of paint that makes things feel ever so slightly different. The demonic (or whatever) barber felt strait out of Power Puff Girls.
The “After-story Story”: Rachel Connor and Josceline Fenton pulls out all the stops giving fans the experimental takes on material that they crave.
These things added together Regular Show is a comic adaptation that’s worth picking up and a good alternative to the also-good original TV series.
