Review: Regular Show #8

Does Regular Show even need an introduction at this point? I think most of have become quite familiar with this series. So, I think I’m just gonna go ahead and jump right into this one. Rigby and Mordecai continue their hilarious antics in Regular Show #8 when they try to retrieve an embarrassing selfie from some creepy dungeon database. Should this just be hashtagged #everytumblrusersworstnightmare? Mordecai is determined to delete a photo that he fears will make Margaret not like him. And we all know that once a photo is on the internet it becomes immortalized. So the two have to battle an internet troll and relive hauntingly embarrassing moments to do so. It’s like going through your old myspace photos from junior high. However, the issue concludes with a “moral of the story,” which I think was a pretty cute way to end it. Did I mention there is a second story in this issue too? So you get even more of these two dudes as their comical selves.

This scene basically sums up the issue:

Reguarl Show #9

I’ve been a fan of the show for a while and Nick Sumida keeps the shenanigans rolling in the comic. I just love the dynamic between Rigby and Mordecai. Kudos Sumida for the accurate portrayal; I could also hear Rigby’s squeal of shame from cringe worthy moments. Allison Strejlau befittingly illustrates their adventure inside the chaotic castle. KaBoom never ceases to impress me and over the past year I’ve basically been throwing my money at them. I really enjoyed this issue and I will probably buy the trade paperback when it comes out later this year.


Score: 5/5
