Regular Show #1 Review


You may watch them everyday on Cartoon Network.  Now they have their own comic book series.  Regular Show #1 is just as funny as the television cartoon.

The debut issue of this new comic book series, by BOOM! Studios, has all the main characters in the story:  Rigby, Mordecai, Benson, Skips, Muscle Man, and High Five Ghost.  The story has all the elements and quirks as the cartoon series.  Mordecai gets on Rigby’s case (you know Mordecai is the sensible one out of the two).  Muscle Man creates chaos.  Not only is Skips always knowledgeable about chaotic events, he always has a solution to the problems.  And what would Regular Show be like without Benson yelling “Get back to work!”

The gang is at an outdoor benefit concert when Muscle Man starts a mosh pit, which eventually gets out of control.  Now Rigby, Mordecai, Skips and Benson have to find a way to get Muscle Man to stop moshing.

If you are a fan of the Regular Show cartoon, then you will want to grab a copy of this issue and start reading.  I’m a fan of the cartoon and reading the story was just as funny and entertaining as watching it on television.

The story is written by KC Green.  A very easy to read, all ages comic.  Silly and funny just like the show.

Art is done by Allison Strejlau and colors by Lisa Moore.  Good visual storytellers.  The characters are drawn true to the cartoon, a major selling point.

VERDICT (drum roll please)

I recommend this title, especially if you are a Regular Show fan.
