This really is Kirkman hankering after the Cartoon Network dollars isn’t it? He’s got grown-up TV conquered with The Walking Dead show, and now he wants to get at the kids! This book really is like a cartoon, and it’s enjoyable all the same, there are plenty of eye-rolling moments, but if you go with it, and just accept the stupid/cool ideas, it’s a lot of fun. The fight between SD and the Mega-Raptor was dumb, but it was dumb fun. I did like the ending, which revealed the true extent of Maximus’ evil, he kidnapped Derek’s mother and made him forget her! That bastard! That’s an extra level of maturity that elevates this book from being totally for kids only.
