Review: Regular Show #6

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?

RegularShow_06_preview_Page_02Jeremy 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.

Score: 3/5
