When reading Garfield #2, it’s obvious that this isn’t just another younger readers book. Sure, it’ll appeal to kids, but I got just as much enjoyment out of it as anyone else would.

First off, Mark Evanier wrote for the Garfield Saturday morning cartoons in the ’80s. So, it’s clear to see that he has a fondness for the character and that he KNOWS how to write Garfield, as well as the rest of the cast. Let’s be honest, Garfield is a 3-panel comic strip (more on Sundays) and all that anyone remembers about him is that he loves lasagna, hates Mondays, and is lazy. In this comic, Evanier actually gives him some CHARACTER that totally fits in with everything we’ve ever known about him in the past, and yet, makes him a character that we’re just getting to know. As far as the actual stories go in this issue, it’s classic Garfield and some very fun stuff.

Release Date: May 16, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

You know, BOOM! Studios should’ve just named Steed & PeelThe Avengers“. I mean, c’mon, that’s the actual name of the television show that this comic is based on, so they wouldn’t technically be lying. And it would have sold much better, and then a lot more people would be exposed to this fun little comic. Just a suggestion. This MAY be why I’m not in the marketing field.

I’ve been in love with this series since issue #1. It’s a nice, charming mystery/spy thriller that never takes itself seriously, manages to throw in a lot of humor without turning the book into a comedy, and there’s plenty of cliffhangers, page-turners, and such that make it really enjoyable.

I may have stated this in a previous review, but I’ve never seen The Avengers television show that the Steed & Mrs. Peel comic book series is based on. But, after reading Steed & Mrs. Peel #3 I think that I’m going to add it to my Netflix queue.

For those looking for a Grant Morrison story, this really isn’t that. Yes, he did write the book, but this isn’t “Grant Morrison’s Steed & Mrs. Peel!!!”. It’s Steed & Mrs. Peel written by Grant Morrison. What it is, is a charming, interesting, spy thriller with a lot of heart. You can tell that Morrison had a fondness for the show by the way he writes the characters and the story in general.
