Review: Minions: Banana!
They’re the most loveable evil henchmen ever created… Stuart, Kevin, Bob and the rest of the Minions return for laughs and gags in this hilarious comic collection. Collecting together Minions Comic Issues #1 and #2, laugh along as the Minions unleash their unique brand of mayhem on the world.
Comics based on animated movies have been a staple in the comics industry for as long as anyone can remember, in fact, the first one I can remember is Star Wars. Now ones based on comedic properties are even rarer, the oddest one I know of , was when NOW Comics was still in operation, and they had produced, a Married With Children series, which was actually hilarious.
Which brings me to the Minions, which were really the breakout stars of the Despicable Me movies, as they have been a curious bunch but I never could imagine how they could create a movie or even a comic on a bunch of nameless characters, but they did (with naming just a few). Within this original graphic novel, the Minions are caught in all types of schemes and scenarios, which reminds me a lot of MAD Magazine classic “SPY VS SPY,” with similar comedic results. They go for Job interviews, to target practice to therapy sessions to dreams of bananas. Literally, every page shows a new adventure, making this more a collection of comic strips than a graphic novel.
Overall, I would say a decent read to pass the time.
