Review: Rugrats #1
BOOM! Studio’s Rugrats captures the essence of the former Nickelodeon cartoon in it’s glory days. Published throught their KaBOOM! imprint, the story follows Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, and Lil as they attempt to understand the new technology their parents have become obsessed with. From nanny cams to drones, the new series aims to tackle it all and bring it into the new century.
Writer Box Brown successfully gives life to the voices of the once beloved characters. Brown also creates a charming journey that will leave fans wondering where the babies will go next.
Artist Lisa DuBois expresses the overall classic appearance of the franchise while also including a flavor of their own. Together this writer/artist duo seems unstoppable.
Rugrats is a perfect read if you’re simply picking it up for the nostalgia-factor, but also perfect and age appropriate, if you’re hoping to find a comic to introduce to the little ones in your life.
