Mr. Stuffins TPB Review

GLX reviews Mr. Stuffins TPB.



Mr Stuffins TPB
Writers: Andrew Cosby and Johanna Stokes
Art: Axel Medellin Machain



It's not uncommon for a kid to have a toy companion. For me, I had Winnie the Pooh. The collection of Mr. Stuffins takes that concept and throws in some kid friendly action into the mix. Does Mr. Stuffins deliver the goods?

During a trip to a local toy store, Zach convinces his dad to buy him a stuffed bear named Mr Stuffins. What Zach doesn't know is that this no normal bear. This bear has been implanted with a top secret disc that transforms Mr Stuffins from everyday toy to a highly powerful weapon. Needless to say, some very powerful people want a hold of that disc.

The writing by Cosby and Stokes is entertaining. There's never a dull moment and the characters are enjoyable. One moment that stands out in my mind is the first encounter between Zach and Mr Stuffins. It's really charming and definately a highlight from the collection.

Machain's art is nothing mind blowing, but it's appropriate for the material. The color palette used in Mr Stuffins is a bit more muted than I expected. It works in the end, but I wonder if it a different color palette could've helped.

At the end of the day, Mr Stuffins TPB is an entertaining work. It's nothing mind blowing, but it is entertaining. Definately worth a look if you're looking for some new All Ages material.
