For The Folks (Sweetie Comic Review #1)

Sweetie #1

Writers Sean Dillion & Steven Petrivelli

Childhood, a time of wonder. Where we dream big yet live small, imagining that we will be whatever we want. Well with a supportive family and realistic goals, a lot of us do. Sweetie is a new comic from Action Lab that showcases something like that. Although, Sweetie’s parents aren’t exactly aware of what they are supporting.

Sweetie is the daughter of an avid comic reader, and where her parents settled to become adults. Sweetie ferociously trains to be a hero. Her training varies though, some times she bounces around in her room using couch cushions to land on. Other times she uses hostage-takers in a mall on the way to pick up her dad’s pull list.

The art style of this book is great, it has a glam afro samurai feeling. Sweetie’s glorious afro flowing behind her as she flips about the panels. Its rather reminiscent of Tradd Moore’s Luther Strode run, with her hair flowing in place of blood. The story adds to the art so well, leaving the parents a near enigma but showing us that they are really just us. Comic fans with kids.

Born in Florida, dragged to California because of Internet dating. Comics have always helped me have a healthy escape when I was younger. As I got older my friends used me as their comic encyclopedia for random trivia. Now, I show my daughter all the stories and characters that helped me through, and being able to share my views on that through reviews is one of my favorite privileges.
