BONUS REVIEW by JIMMY HAYES
This is the BEST kind of FCBD comic that there is! You get a sampling of 4 of Dark Horse's titles, not just "here's what we think you'll like". First off is Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I give this story a HUGE thumbs up! The story focuses on Kit Fisto and the clones. Great story, great art. A WINNER!!! Next up is Usagi Yojimbo. I've NEVER read Usagi before, and after this, I just might. Short but good story, again, thumbs up. Next is the bad news. I litterally COULD NOT read Emily the Strange. This book is not intended for me, and I'm not intended for it. After that we come to Larry Marder's Beanworld. Again, I don't want to speak bad about a comic that a company is giving you for FREE, so once more, not my cup of tea. Finally, we come to the reason that I wanted to review this book: INDIANA JONES & the Temple of Yearning by Mark Evanier & Ethen Beavers(the creators of the upcoming Iniana Jones Adventures Vol 2, out September 23rd!) . BOTH of my thumbs are SO HIGH UP IN THE AIR they might get caught in a airplane's propeller. In just 6 short pages, both creators are able to pack a GREAT Indiana Jones story with action, humor and heart. The ONLY problem that I had was that Indy didn't get a chance to use his trademark bullwhip. But still, my favorite FCBD story by far!!!
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
