Just a quick disclaimer before we get into the meat and potatoes. Mordecai and Rigby were not the main focus of the story this month. That right there made me a little uncertain from the beginning. That’s why I picked up this book in the first place; I love these guys. So here’s what I think of what Boom Studios decided to focus on this month. Thomas is left in charge when the rest of the park staff is spending a relaxing day at the beach. Doesn’t sound too terrible, right? The only problem is that Park Avenue decides to pay the park grounds a little visit now that he’s been released from jail. He still holds Benson responsible for ending up behind bars in the first place, so he decides to do a little redecorating. That can’t be good considering that Park Avenue is a giant spray-paint can. Will Thomas be able to fend off Park Avenue and his legion of street artists before Benson gets home?
Jeremy Lawson did the script and the illustrations for Regular Show this month. It reads and looks pretty good; he really does the characters justice. I still feel like I’m watching an episode of the show every time that I read an issue of this book.
I continue to enjoy this series, but I would like it better if it followed in the footsteps of a more classic series. Every issue is a one-shot. I wouldn’t mind a three or four issue arc from time to time. Or I think that the issues should be longer. I just feel like Boom has the ability to pack a little more content in these stories. I realize that the back-ups are always there (and they’re always funny), but I’m finding myself to be more interested in the main stories.
